  1. We Are What We Are (2013)

    The Parkers, a reclusive family who follow ancient customs, find their secret existence threatened as a torrential downpour moves into their area, forcing daughters Iris and Rose to assume responsibilities beyond those of a typical family.

    A remake/retelling of  We Are What We Are aka Somos lo que hay (2010) by Jim Mickle director of the “pretty decent for its budget” Stake Land (2010).

    “Kuru is an incurable degenerative neurological disorder endemic to tribal regions of Papua New Guinea. It is a type of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy, caused by a prion found in humans.  It is now widely accepted that Kuru was transmitted among members of the Fore tribe of Papua New Guinea via CANNIBALISM.

    A horror story about a family… with secrets… and young girls with big shoes to fill. We’ve heard it before… what makes it new?

    This is a dark and gritty mystery thriller. Unlike the typical hack and slash horror we’ve all come to know and love. There are hints of psychotic and irrational thinking versus awareness.

    The cast performed well and the small chucks of history behind the madness gave it that Gothic feel. The overall production was great! The pace went hand in hand with the atmosphere and cinematography.

    Father and daughters battle each other through a series of actions and less words. The keys to your cage are within performing a horrendous and unthinkable act.

    It wasn’t a gorefest it wasn’t a snorefest. Sometimes a simple story with great storytellers can fill an hour or two of our lives, without regrets. Yes – there are better versions of the story. This was a “steady” horror, that could easily fit in the typical Sunday horror.

    My Verdict: 5.5/10
