Product Description

The Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank 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 and Rose 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.

“What in the world was I thinking” about what you said, oh of course, this movie, nice slow pace,
then this thing hit you, especially the most bizarre and “Shocking ending you will ever, ever See,
This is the Re-make of the Spanish speaking movie out of Mexico, “We Are What We Are” is a movie you
will soon not forget, if you decide and has the stomach to endure it’s outcome, weak stomach, stay away,
the way Director “Jim Mickle shot this, is nothing more than outstanding, the rainy atmosphere that we see
from the very fist opening scene of the movie, when Mrs. Parker, head into town to get supplies for the family,
from there on this movie takes on a slow ride, like you don’t know what’s going to happen, everything was
going through my mind, trying very hard to figure out it’s outcome, from the four main characters of the movie,
or I should say five, which includes the doctor, played be Michael Parks” I remember him from, (“From Dusk Till Dawn”
the very first scene in the corner store") played their part to an absolute perfection, Bill Sage” Ambyr Childers” and
Julia Garner” plus little Nick Damici” hope they had a green screen so that kid couldn’t see that one scene of mayhem,
if you think Hannibal Lector was gross, this one overshadow that by a mile, may not be in story wise but Oh Boy,
but the ever, ever, ever, unrecognizable “Kelly McGillis” not until the end credits did I know it was her, see if you can,
she was also in “Stake Land” and I didn’t know it, till the end, I warn you again, weak stomach stay away,
English 5.1 DTS-HD master Audio.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good film but beware... Feb. 3 2014
By J. Isaacs - Published on Amazon.com

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lamb Sunday Dec 17 2013
By Dayna Newman/Slasher Diva - Published on Amazon.com
This remake of the 2010 Spanish speaking film from Mexico is very different with many changes one of which is the genders of the main characters.This film takes place in the backwoods where as the original was in the inner city.They focus more on religion or what this family has come to know as religion.

The acting was superb ,Bill Sage was exceptionally good as the patriarch of the family " Frank Parker" impressive performances were also turned in by Julia Garner and Ambyr Childers as Iris and Rose Parker ,Frank's two daughters.

The scenery was beautiful and beautifully shot, the dreary, rainy look lent to the Gothic feel of the film.The gore was turned down in comparison to a lot of other films of this nature but they let you have it when really needed.I would give it a 5 on the gore scale of 1-10.the effects ran from very well done to just ok.

The story was given another layer with the always great Michael Parks as the town doctor who's daughter disappears years earlier and due to flooding in the area he finds human remains in the form of bones in the Parker's creek thus leading him on a mission to unfolding the mystery of how and why she went missing.The third act is really exciting as there are showdowns and power struggles leading into a shocking and brutal climax.Both this and the original are good films that I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well-acted and it sucks you right in from the start Aug. 3 2014

Very creepy and very spooky because it appears so normal and humdrum. Very well-acted and it sucks you right in from the start. Look out for that dinner scene, it's a doozy. For one of the few times in my life, I'll say that I liked this version better than the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars (BLU RAY REVIEW) Yum... April 28 2014
By M. Oleson - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "WHAT'S FOR DINNER" Jan. 20 2014
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com

WAWWA for short is unlike any movie in this genre that I have seen in a very long time and I mean this in a good way! If you are looking for a fast paced blood and guts slasher flick you will be better served looking elsewhere. If you are looking for teen sex, drugs and rock "n" roll look elsewhere too!
This is a slow paced "let it simmer" kind of movie that gets to the meat and potatoes of who and what the Parker family is and tells the story of their history in parts through a narrative from their families journal.

The story revolves around a family of five deeply religious (mom, dad, 2 daughters and 1 young son) living deep in the South (I believe) who are barely scraping by. The story starts with the loss of the mother and the eldest daughter is ordered to take her mothers place the families hierarcy. This will play a crucial role in the story as it progresses.

The town's coroner (Parks) is plagued with guilt from the loss of his missing daughter and his quest for answers leads him on the trail of???

The towns sheriff is dismissive of the doc's ideas and has more important things to worry about like the severe weather and a missing girl.

This should give you a good idea of the story without giving to much away to see if its your "cup of tea" kind of movie.

Now for the production side of the movie. The direction and cinematography are top notch for this genre as is the casting, locations, and the acting. There is no CGI and the special effects are kept to a minimum, but what there is is well done.
For me if this movie suffers from anything it might be the pacing and the writing, but neither detract to much from this movie as presented.

Rating ) to 5 stars

Story = 3.8 It could of had more suspense and a little better pacing.
Direction = 3.8 The director could have injected more suspense and fear.
Acting = 4 The cast do a great job of telling this story.
Gore = 3 There is a fair amount of gore both visual and perceived.
Sex/Nudity = 3 There is one scene of sex between the eldest daughter and a deputy without nudity except for the guy's plumbers butt. There are a few scenes of full frontal female victims nudity.
Cursing = 2 There is some and I think there was a couple of the F words, but overall not that much.
Violence = 3 There is about 4 or 5 scenes with knives, guns and shovels, but again not real graphic.
Entertainment Value = 4 If you have patience and like movies that tell their stories in detail over time I think you may enjoy this one as much as I did.
