We Are What We Are (2013)
Duration: 105 minutes
For this years 31 days of horror Netflix has really made a lot of award winning recommendations. And this movie is yet another. I do have to say that so far the selection and recommendations have been soooo much better than last year making reviewing all of these easier than last year. And I have been able to keep my promise to do better reviewing movies for you better than last year! GO ME!
Now to this movie. It is was extremely creepy in a good way. Family traditions that date back 100’s of years are not always a good, especially if you have to force it on the next generation. The religious implications behind the cannibalism in this movie added to level of creepy. The acting was excellent. Gore was very realistic. Simply put everything about this movie was fantastic! It has easily made it to one of my top 10 horror movies of all times.
As the movie poster above quotes, “Does for cannibals what Let the Right One In did for vampires.” As a side note, if you haven’t seen Let the Right One In you should! Let the Right One In is on my top list as well.
