From the Press Release
Following a deadly storm, two beautiful young sisters are left to support their family – and carry on a gruesome tradition – in WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, the acclaimed new masterpiece from director Jim Mickle. The gripping, unnerving and ultimately horrifying film arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 7, 2014, from Entertainment One (eOne), with SRPs $24.98 each.
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage; Mysterious Skin, American Psycho) 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 (Ambyr Childers; The Master, Gangster Squad) and Rose (Julia Garner; The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Martha Marcy May Marlene), are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.
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. In his vivid re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, director Jim Mickle (Mulberry Street, Stake Land) paints a gruesome and suspenseful portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive, giving us something we can really sink our teeth into.
Also starring in this tension-filled shocker are Michael Parks (Kill Bill, “Twin Peaks”), Kelly McGillis (Top Gun, Witness, The Innkeepers) and Kassie DePaiva (“One Life to Live”).
