After going down a storm at this year’s FrightFest, horror movie We Are What We Are now has an official trailer.
The film, an English-language remake of Jorge Michel Grau’s Mexican original, stars Ambyr Childers and Julia Garner (who were both in Electrick Children and Last Exorcism 2).
The film involves an American gothic family who maintain a ritualistic adherence to cannibalism, until a torrential storm begins to reveal the secrets buried around their property, offering new clues to investigators studying decades of disappearances.
Mickle, director of the excellent Stake Land, told FrightFest’s Alan Jones, “I didn’t want to slavishly repeat anything from the first movie except the crucial cannibal through-line. My We Are What We Are is a reinvention, not a lazy manipulative remake devoid of ideas. I wanted to make a companion piece to Jorge’s original that could almost play as a complementary double feature with it, furnishing two different ways of looking at the same premise.”
We Are What We Are stars Kelly McGillis, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Nick Damici and Bill Sage.
