First Official Shot From Jim Mickle's WE ARE WHAT WE ARE

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Twitch's love for Jorge Michel Grau's Somos Lo Que Hay is well documented and so you would think that any adaptation of the Mexican cannibal film to US soil would be met with a bit of trepidation. And you'd be right. Or, you would have been right but for the fact that the task of handling said adaptation fell to Stake Land director Jim Mickle and his writing partner Nick Damici. And if there's an American indie horror film from the last few years that we love more than Stake Land then we're very hard pressed to say what it is.

Mickle has clearly made some changes to the story rather than just aping the original and fans curious to see what he's been up to don't have long to wait now, with the remade We Are What We Are soon to debut at Sundance. And that image up above? That would be the first officially released still.

A devastating storm washes up clues that lead authorities closer and closer to the cannibalistic Parker family.
Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell, and Kelly McGillis star.

    Had no idea they were remaking this for the American market. The original was solid but I can imagine them improving on it. I just hope it doesn't veer into "Flowers in the Attic" territory where we're just watching a bunch of pasty white kids losing it from being locked in their house.

  • I saw the sales promo at AFM and it looked amazing. Jim has very definitely put his own stamp on it while being respectful to the origins.
