The ‘WE ARE WHAT WE ARE’ Remake Serves Up a Poster for Us to Feast On

I never would have thought there could be such a thing as an arthouse cannibal film.  You don’t typically think the idea of young kids eating humans could be presented in a classy and thoughtful manner.  However, that is exactly what Jorge Michel Grau achieved with his 2010 Mexican feature We Are What We Are.  It’s a slower and more contemplative film than the gore fest you might expect from the cannibal genre.  In fact, it uses that genre to tell more of a story of family love and rivalry more than anything.  I don’t typically get excited about American remakes, but Jim Mickle isn’t just your typical Hollywood director.  He has proven himself in a short period of time as one of the best directors working in independent horror right now.  Mulberry St. really made a name for himself right out of the gate but Stake Land sealed the deal.  If you haven’t checked out Stake Land than you are missing out on one of the best horror films of 2010 and the most original vampire film I have seen in awhile.  So it intrigued me when I heard Mickle was set to direct the remake of We Are What We Are.  Outside of a still and some behind the scenes talk Andy and I have heard, not much has been released from the film.  Now we have the poster from the film which is set for release next year.  As you can see, the image clearly hints at the bloody theme of the film.  I personally love this poster and look forward to hearing more from the film going into 2013.

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop, collecting an unhealthy amount of action figures, and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, came forth a nerdy boy that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet, he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. When not writing about films, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman. Clearly, not much has changed.
