Underrated Chiller

3 years, 10 months ago at Feb 8 2:26


Family values takes a whole new meaning in Jorge Michel Grau's eerie cannibalism thriller "We Are What We Are," and the menace of the movie is both strange and psychologically intriguing. Sexual politics and bodily mutilation take the front wheel in this nightmarish horror film, and no one is safe. When the patriarch of a strange, impoverished family in Mexico dies dramatically, th... read more

This was made three years before the remake that was made three years ago from now lol. Anyways I was curious about this one and it's remake. I know they are about cannibals, but I know nothing else. This is directed by Jorge Michel Grau who is another to participate in the ABC's of Death. I have a few in my horrorfest that have directed shorts here.

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 slaken their horrific hunger? The task falls to the eldest son, Alfredo, a teenage misfit who seems far from ready to accept the challenge.

“This was made three years before the remake that was made three years ago from now lol. Anyways I was curious about this one and it's remake. I know they are about cannibals, but I know nothing else. This is directed by Jorge Michel Grau who is another to participate in the ABC's of Death. I have a few in my horrorfest that have directed shorts here. It looks like I didn't enjoy his segment all that much. He also directed a segment in Barbarous Mexico that was just average. I can only hope his storytelling here was better than his shorts. I noticed they had good elements, but they overall didn't accomplish whatever I had hoped for. Anyways let's see where this falls on things.

Okay this was actually pretty damn good. It's a bit of a slow burn yet it doesn't actually feel that way” read more
