A new clip from Jim Mickle’s remake of We Are What We Are (review) has arrived, and we have saved a place at the table for you. Whatcha waiting for? Say grace and then eat her!
The flick, which is currently at Cannes, is a re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name. Director Jim Mickle paints a gripping and gruesome portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive.
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage) 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 (Ambyr Childers) and Rose (Julia Garner), 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. The film also stars Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis, Nick Damici, Wyatt Russell, and newcomer Jack Gore.
We Are What We Are was written by Mickle and Damici. The two previously collaborated on the screenplays for Mickle’s first two features, Mulberry Street and Stake Land (winner of the “Midnight Madness” Audience Award at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival).
