This deliberately paced remake of the superior 2010 Mexican film of the same name has some stylish atmospheric touches, although it could use more of the twisted sense of humor it only flashes in spurts.
The doom, the gloom, and the horrific truth kept just out of the audience's reach make the build up in We Are What We Are a potent motion picture, and Mickle films it with genuine class and moderation.
We Are What We Are is built around sloppy yet fantastic kills with a fairly satisfying explanation for everything, but it jerks the viewer around with awkward jumps in violence and its overbearing tepidness shouts over everything else in the film.
