Hey, NYC! Win Tix To See Jim Mickle's WE ARE WHAT WE ARE

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
We're big fans of one Mr. Jim Mickle in these here parts. His first cinematic effort in the feature length realm, the mutant rat/pandemic horror Mulberry Street, proved justly claustrophobic, while his road trippin vampire apocalypse Stake Land was a fresh take on both the bloodsucker mythology and the American Gothic. He's now bringing us his version of We Are What We Are, once a Spanish language thriller about a family of cannibals (which we also really dug).

In WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage, "Boardwalk Empire") 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 (Ambyr Childers, THE MASTER) and Rose (Julia Garner, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR) 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.
