Seems that We Are What We Are was universally acclaimed on IMDb although Rotten Tomatoes have it at a high 87% which is probably we I lean towards in terms of rating. This is a quiet, moody film. Some might even say ‘arty’ with slow shots, wide open spaces, tableau framing and that kind of thing. The story of a family with an ancestral hunger for flesh.
I have to say that I really like it. Whilst it wasn’t a splatter fest like Grave or quiet-quiet-loud jump extravaganza like Insidious it had a very enticing nature which unfolded slowly, gracefully and to what I thought was a surprising conclusion. There are a few scenes that were shocking and a little sick (as in belly sickness) which were effective.
It’s always good when you watch a trailer for a film and then the film itself based on that trailer and are not disappointed. I would definitely recommend this.
