Further filling out its horror library, IFC’s new genre label, IFC Midnight, has just acquired the rights to bring Mexican cannibals into our homes! Take THAT, Arizona!
Variety reports that IFC Films has pacted with Wild Bunch for U.S. rights to Jorge Michel Grau’s We Are What We Are.
Look for more on this one and whatever else IFC gets its horror-loving claws into really soon!
“A middle-aged man dies in the street, leaving his widow and three sons 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 slake 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.
Shocking, bloody, and deeply moving, We Are What We Are is a remarkable reinvention of the horror genre – a visceral and powerfully emotional portrait of a family bound by a terrible secret hunger and driven by monstrous appetites.”
