" The Silence of the Lambs finally has a worthy successor." -Matt Barone, Complex
"The film is that rare modern horror movie that doesn't simply fabricate its scares with the standard bag of postproduction tricks. Instead it builds them via a bracing command of traditional suspense tools ... This is polished film craft." -David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"Childers and Garner are absolutely mesmerizing as Iris and Rose." -Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"Brings the filmmaker's distinct blend of the elegant and the macabre to its ultimate realization." -Eric Kohn, Indiewire

TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR, THE PARKERS WOULD LIKE TO HAVE YOU FOR DINNER!
AND DON'T MISS OUT ON ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED HORROR RELEASES OF EARLY 2014!
We Are What We Are
One of the most anticipated releases of the year for horror fans comes early with We Are What We Are from red-hot director Jim Mickle - whose revenge thriller COLD IN JULY starring "Dexter's" Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Vinessa Shaw is generating big buzz before it hits Sundance this January.
In his vivid reimagining of the 2010 Mexican film We Are What We Are, Mickle (Mulberry Street, Stake Land) is at his horror-genre best, drawing intense critical praise for this suspenseful portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive, giving us something we can really sink our teeth into.
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, behind closed doors Frank Parker (Bill Sage, "Nurse Jackie," "Boardwalk Empire," Mysterious Skin, American Psycho) and his two beautiful daughters, Iris (Ambyr Childers, The Master, Gangster Squad) and Rose (Julia Garner, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Martha Marcy May Marlene), are hiding a gruesome secret. As a torrential rainstorm moves into their small town and the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret, tragedy strikes and Frank enlists Iris and Rose to keep the family's ancestral customs intact ... at any cost.
With an ending that will leave you breathless, the tension-filled shocker We Are What We Are - an Official Selection at both the Sundance Film Festival and Cannes -- also stars Michael Parks (Kill Bill, Twin Peaks), Kelly McGillis (Top Gun, Witness, The Innkeepers) and Kassie DePaiva ("One Life to Live").
