Good film but beware... Feb. 3 2014
By J. Isaacs - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This film will not be for everyone. Some might find it slow, others will sense the tension building. You might think you know what is going to happen but you don't. This is such a bizarre combination of indie film art and offbeat horror. I don't how else to describe it. I enjoyed it but was definitely macabre.

(BLU RAY REVIEW) Yum... April 28 2014
By M. Oleson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
There may be spoilers.

I'm going to assume that anyone who is interested in this movie understands what the general theme is. For those of you who don't, cannibalism is involved. So if that isn't what you're looking for in a horror film, you might want to look elsewhere.

While this remake of a 2010 Mexican film certainly qualifies as a horror film, there are no traditional "jump out" scenes and limited gore. The horror is the subject matter and how 2 young sisters, forced by tradition, have to carry out what they believe to be long standing family values. Director Jim Mickle certainly has a handle on drama and horror or to be more precise, suspense. It builds ever so slowly after the Parker family matriarch (Kassie DePaiva) dies mysteriously after fainting and hitting her head on a pipe. She falls into a partially water filled ditch and eventually drowns.

Set in upstate New York, a driving rainstorm causes flooding in the area. This manages to dislodge suspicious artifacts which begin to wash up on a creek bed. Discovered by the local coroner, Doc Barrow (a very good Michael Parks), wonders if they might be clues to the mysterious disappearance of numerous individuals, including his own daughter, over the years. An autopsy of Mrs. Parker provides more clues.

After Mrs. Parker is put to rest, patriarch Frank Parker confronts his two daughters. Iris (Ambyr Childers) is about 16 or 17 and as the oldest must be the chief chef as it were. Younger sister Rose (Julia Garner) is about 14 and takes responsibility for rearing younger brother Rory (Jack Gore). A neighbor, Marge offers to assist Frank but he puts her off. I didn't even recognize Kelly McGillis as Marge. Many horror-schlock fans may not be happy with the pace of the movie and a lack of gore throughout, but patience has its virtue. Others, settling in for a white-knuckled suspense drama, may be unhappy with the conclusion. It took me a day or two to think about it, but I concluded the final scenes are just about perfect.

The Blu ray disc comes in a 1080p video resolution and a 2.39:1 aspect ratio. While I noticed a brief bit of video noise, the film looks good overall. It appears the director and cinematographer purposely wanted a dull color grading. Some of which is due to the bleak home setting and the constant rainfall. The audio comes in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. I thought the sound effects were excellent in this film. The constant rain changes from a light drizzle to modestly dense rain to a raging storm. The surrounds are well utilized and the dialog properly centered. Subtitles are limited to English SDH in this Region A disc. Extras include a commentary track with the director, screenwriter Nick Damici and some of the actors, a 55 minute "making of" feature, a trailer and some interviews with the director, Sage and Garner.

"Thank you for the sustenance we receive" April 14 2014
By Doug Park - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Dark, slow but steady film about the apparently normal Parker family, who share a macabre secret ritual. Excellent acting and cinematography bring an immediate realism that really carries this film. WARNING: If gore and grossness get to you, stay away. While WE ARE WHAT WE ARE is not just a constant schlock-fest, there is some pretty disturbing stuff here: Short but graphic scenes of an autopsy, etc.

There's been some debate about whether or not WAWWA is really a horror film, and I would vote a definite "yea" even though the whole mood and atmosphere are different (and better in many ways) than most contemporary horror flicks. There are some elements of suspense, but you know the big "secret" before it's halfway through--the cover also gives a decent hint--so it doesn't exactly work as a mystery. Regardless, the brief flashbacks to the family's ancestors in the 1780s add a great deal.

Though none of the individual elements here are anything that hasn't been done plenty of times before, WAWWA's whole combination of qualities make it a different experience. It's obviously low budget but still far from being another super-amateurish cheapie. The makers of this film did an excellent job with what they had to work with. There are some blank spots--e.g., the body in the water--and a little stronger sense of place would have been nice. At the same time, it's probably better that they don't explain every little thing away.

DECENT MOVIE BUT... Feb. 15 2014
By MURIEL65 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It was a slow but good story, good actors, and even if soon enough you start to realize what this family dirty secret is, it is still keep you watching until the end...which end was, at least to me, a bit disappointing but I will not tell about it cause it would probably spoiled the entire movie... But if nothing else, you can rent this one... It may be slow but not boring at all, even suspenseful at some point...
Producers need to make better movies, and/or vendors need to not be so ... July 21 2014
By Doctor Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is not a $10 movie, and, after shipping, it is certainly not a $14 movie. Why are we paying $15 dollars for three-star movies? Producers need to make better movies, and/or vendors need to not be so greedy, and/or shipping charges should be cut in half. I enjoy collecting and watching new movies, but, at these prices, I have enough to keep me entertained for a very, very long time. I'm out of the market until something changes.
