Best Poster of the Year Candidate: ‘We Are What We Are’

Landing at #3 on my top 10 films of last year was Jorge Michel Grau’s incredible We Are What We Are, a real-life inspired horror film that follows a family of cannibals in Mexico.

Arriving in select theaters this Friday (@IFC Center in NY) from IFC Midnight (available nationwide on demand February 23 via Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, and Bright House), Bloody Disgusting scored an exclusive look at the official poster that’s guaranteed to make our best one sheets of the year list. It features the tagline “Every family has a secret recipe for staying together,” while displaying a close up of bloody lips and a severed finger.

A middle-aged man dies in the street, leaving his widow and three children destitute. The devastated family is confronted not only with his loss but with a terrible challenge – how to survive. For they are cannibals. They have always existed on a diet of human flesh consumed in bloody ritual ceremonies… and the victims have always been provided by the father. Now that he is gone, who will hunt? Who will lead them? How will they sate their horrific hunger? The task falls to the eldest son, Alfredo, a teenage misfit who seems far from ready to accept the challenge… But without human meat the family will die.

My question to you is this: if you had the chance to taste human meat, would you?
