Already released in the UK, Emiliano Rocha Minter’s Mexican horror, We Are the Flesh (read our review), is getting released here in the States through Arrow Films. While there’s no VOD or home video dates to share, the widely praised indie horror film will begin a limited theatrical run on January 13, 2017 in Los Angeles at Laemmle’s Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre. It will also open for weeklong runs in Laredo and San Antonio on January 13, Denver and New Orleans on January 20, and San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Columbus January 27. Special screenings include El Paso, Houston, Phoenix, Cleveland, Portland and Albuquerque throughout January and February.
We have an exclusive new look at the film in which some crazy guy explains that his flesh is the soul and that he wants his followers to devour it all.
Hailed by Oscar-winning Mexican directors Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (The Revenant), We Are the Flesh stars Noé Hernández as a post-apocalyptic hermit eager to transform the ashes of the world and María Evoli and Diego Gamaliel as the starving siblings under his thrall.
After the end of the world, a young brother and sister roam an apocalyptic city looking for food and shelter. They take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit who makes them a dangerous offer to survive. He puts them to work building a bizarre cavernous structure, where he acts out his insane and depraved fantasies. Trapped in a maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of dark and forbidden behavior.
