All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

We Are What We Are (2013)

Starring: Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis
Director: Jim Mickle


Premise:
A family in a rural mountain town tends to keep to themselves. After the matriarch dies, it's up to the eldest daughter to keep up with customs passed down from several generations which includes finding human flesh while living under the father's strict rules.

My Take:
A remake of the Mexican film of the same name (which I rather enjoyed) that takes the basic story from the original and completely redoes it for an American audience (but in a smart and unique way). The movie focuses on characters rather than viscera and build up nicely to the finale as the children begin to question their family ways and wonder if their father is losing his sanity. All while the town doctor starts to puts together pieces of the mystery when human remains come to the surface during a flood. A solid cast and story pave the way with beautiful images in between.

Rating: So Good
