Critic Consensus: A compelling story cleverly told, We Are What We Are quenches horror buffs' thirst for gore while serving up serious-minded filmmaking and solid acting.

As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.

Critic Reviews for We Are What We Are
A provocative film about the horrors we can find within the usual comforts of family and tradition.
Another welcome entry in the ongoing revival of horror movies that rely on character and setting rather than shock and gore to chill audiences to the marrow.
Remakes may get a lot of stick in Hollywood, as filmmakers can be accused of being somewhat lazy and uncreative in that regard.
An ambitious (if somewhat uneven) slice of downbeat American gothic which interweaves grim melancholia with pointed satire, doomy portent and moments of gnawing revulsion.
Audience Reviews for We Are What We Are
Actually pretty creepy horror movie with a theme I didn't immediately guess.
Well filmed, nicely acted and fittingly horrible story.
An efficient psychological horror film that works precisely because it avoids cheap scares, adopting an oppressive cinematography to create a slow-burning, disturbing experience centered on religion, tradition and patriarchy, despite being a bit predictable in some moments.
