Another horror sale has come in from Sundance, this time it’s Stake Land director Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are (review here). It’s a remake of Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s picture about a family of cannibals that’s been moved from its original setting of Mexico City, to a poor part of the Catskills region in New York State.

eOne picked up the film, which was reportedly heatedly contested amongst bidders, for a low seven figures for the U.S. rights. eOne will role out the film to theaters in a platform formation.

In the film, “A devastating storm washes up clues that lead authorities closer and closer to the cannibalistic Parker family.” Cast includes Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell and Kelly McGillis.

We’ll keep you posted on a release date!
