An official trailer has been released for the American remake of modern cult film “We Are What We Are”. I haven mentioned many a time my dislike for redo’s of recent films for American audiences. Especially when the original is such a powerful artist story in it’s original incarnation. I say enjoy with the subtitled and intended atmosphere. It makes us cultured. Anyway very few redo’s live up to the original but based on the trailer for Jim Mickle’s vision of the 2010 original it looks as though this film will be one of those few exceptions to the rule.
“We Are What We Are” stars Kelly McGillis, Ambyr Childers, Odeya Rush, Wyatt Russell and is due out on September 27th in a limited theatrical release. Check out the trailer below.
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules his family 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 that 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, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.
