We Are What We Are Invades Blu-ray & DVD This January

We Are What We Are BlurayEver since I laid witness to Jim Mickle’s Stake Land, I’ve been following this director very closely. But when it was announced that he would be helming a remake, I was, at first, a little skeptical, but then I remembered this is Jim Mickle taking on some freakin’ cannibals! So yeah, I’m now pretty damn stoked for We Are What We Are, and if you’re too, we have the details regarding its home video release.

From the Press Release:

Following a deadly storm, two beautiful young sisters are left to support their family – and carry on a gruesome tradition – in WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, the acclaimed new masterpiece from director Jim Mickle. The gripping, unnerving and ultimately horrifying film arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 7, 2014, from Entertainment One (eOne), with SRPs $24.98 each.

A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage; Mysterious Skin, American Psycho) 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, Gangster Squad) and Rose (Julia Garner; The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Martha Marcy May Marlene), 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. In his vivid re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, director Jim Mickle (Mulberry Street, Stake Land) paints a gruesome and suspenseful portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive, giving us something we can really sink our teeth into.

        I was so bored with this movie. I got not even an hr into it and even though I had paid to see it on demand I turned it off

        So how does this compare to the original?

        I can’t imagine this being better than the original, but I still wanna check it out.

        As with most remakes the original was better. This was just ok.

        ahhhh this movie was so boring I’d rather watch The open door 2 times in a row than to watch this again, and the most pathetic part was it wasn’t even original, if your not gonna make a story from scratch at least put effort in making it intriguing and attention grabbing, I absolutely hate tastelessly slow movies which is exactly what this was.
