A dull set-up prevents this movie from leaving the lingering impact it could have.
We Are What We Are is a brooding slow burn with little to no jump scares and disturbing subject matter, specifically cannibalism. Believe me when I say I really wanted to love this movie. Sadly, the first two acts of this movie are a chore. I fell asleep the first time around the 20-minute mark my first watchthrough. It begins with a family tragedy and shows their subsequent grieving period. This family has a secret but it’s established early on so we’re just watching them do stuff. It’s a way to develop the characters and set the mood, sure, but it completely failed to grip my attention. You know where the movie is going right off the bat. It shows its hand too quickly and doesn’t gain any momentum until the final act.
The third act is enjoyable, though. It’s thrilling, tense, borderline silly at times but all in good fun. The problem is whether it’s worth the wait. Like waiting in line for five hours for a roller coaster ride and you finally get on and have a good time, but was the wait really worth the few moments of enjoyment? Honestly, it’s entirely up to you. The movie certainly has its perks. The acting is excellent across the board, the daughters in particular, and the cinematography is superbly crafted to give you the eerie vibe necessary to pull off this subject matter. Production value wise, We Are What We Are is quality stuff.
I’d recommend it to horror buffs, specifically those who prefer a slow burn over cheap jump scares. We Are What We Are just happens to be the particular slow burn that’s slow to the point that it produces more of a flicker than a flare.
Dark and Haunting
Dark, haunting and thoroughly gripping – this movie is scary. But it’s not scary in the fast-paced knock ’em dead way of movies like Final Destination or the Saw franchises. This movie had that American Gothic setting with a domineering and frightening father-figure who reigns over his children with a steel (yet shaky) hand. The mystery unravels in just the right way – the nervous woman at the store dies and we see the horror that is her family’s ritual unfold. There are glimpses of the past and how exactly this tradition began. There are doubts with the girls who must carry out the most inhumane prep for supper. In fact, *SPOILER ALERT* watching the slow-paced draining of the victim’s body, the markings (similar to what you’d see on a side of beef at the butcher’s shop) and the inability to truly wash away all the blood that’s seeped into the edges of the girl’s fingernails is truly frightening. Hell, watching the family scoop up a spoonful of dinner and bring it up to their lips was grotesque. The story was solid and the acting superb. The clues the Doc uncovered to put it all together made me wince for his discovery and what that meant in relation to his own child’s disappearance. This film was masterfully done, but I wasn’t surprised. I will watch anything and everything Nick Damici has a hand in. I loved Stakeland, so I am forever a fan of his work. I thoroughly enjoyed “We are What We Are” – especially the way it ended. It was terrifying and shocking and so very unexpected. Great film. I can’t wait to see what Damici does next. (Oh, and it was cool seeing Kelly McGillis working with Damici again too).
