Movie Info

The Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank 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 and Rose 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. -- (C) Entertainment One

Audience Reviews for We Are What We Are

½

An effective psychological horror film that works precisely because it avoids cheap scares, adopting an oppressive cinematography to create a slow-burning and disturbing experience centered on religion, tradition and patriarchy, despite being a bit predictable sometimes.

slow but with merit, the ending was crazy. I enjoyed stake land more but this isn't a bad film, just very different. well acted and violent enough but it's the atmosphere that grabs you.

Actually pretty creepy horror movie with a theme I didn't immediately guess. Well filmed, nicely acted and fittingly horrible story.
