Sisters Tough Through Family Issues In ‘We Are What We Are’ Clip

Screen Shot 2013-05-16 at 1.39.48 PM

After premiering to mixed review out of the Sundance Film Festival (I liked it), Stake Land director Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are remake is heading to the Cannes market. With that, the sales agents have released the first ever footage from the cannibal flick starring Julia Garner, Bill Sage, Wyatt Russell, and Ambyr Childers.

In it we get a taste – pun intended – of the family of cannibals. Too bad it’s not as interesting as the leaked clip from last week…

A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules the roost with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. The most important task the girls face is putting meat on the table— but not the kind that can be found at the local supermarket. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.

    I wasn’t to curious about this film, but after watching this clip I am looking forward to it. Nice to see these characters get some depth.

    Wasn’t this released a couple of years ago? Oh. Why did it need a remake? The original was released only a few years ago. I guess it’s one of those “It isn’t english so therefore people can’t read the subtitles we have to remake it” movies. Stupid. The originals are always better than the watered down english versions.

    Not really attacking the article it’s just a pet peeve of mine. I understand wanting to remake a movie 20-30 years after it’s release to refresh it and try something new.. But to remake a movie a few years after its release because it isn’t english is just so.. lazy.

    I’m pretty bitter against american horror movies these days though. All the better movies I seem to be finding are foreign films. Maybe I’ve just tapped out american horror films. It’s so rare you find a gem these days.

    /endrant. Hhaha

      Even though I completely agree with you Milk (I mean, Let Me In is a more recent and prime example of what you are talking about), I believe this is still one to look forward to. I mean, I’m definitely going to be checking out both for the sake of your rant, but I believe this is one that was done right.
