'We Are What We Are' remake: Exclusive photos

Posted on

We Are What We Are 02
Ryan Samul

Director Jim Mickle made a splash with his 2010 vampire-apocalypse movie Stake Land and his follow-up film, an English language remake of the acclaimed Mexican chiller We Are What We Are, is set to premiere at Sundance next year. To say too much about the original movie would be to slightly spoil both that and, presumably, Mickle’s version, which stars Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Ambyr Childers (The Master), Bill Sage (Nurse Jackie), Kelly McGillis, and newcomer Jack Gore. So, to be safe, we’ll just parrot the remake’s official plot synopsis and say that it concerns “an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive, giving us something we can really sink our teeth into.”

We can, however, show you an exclusive photo of Gore from the new movie. Check it out and tell us what you think. (And those who don’t mind their ghoulish fun being spoiled a little should feel free to take a look at the trailer to the Mexican original.)
