Do you have a hard time believing you can sympathize with cannibals? Then you haven’t seen Jim Mickle and Nick Damici’s latest collaboration, “We Are What We Are.”
The film centers on the Parkers, a seemingly benevolent, reclusive family harboring a dark secret. When Rose and Iris’ (Julia Garner and Ambyr Childers) mother suddenly passes away, it falls upon them to uphold an ancient family tradition. The Parkers have managed to keep their dinnertime custom a secret, but with Frank Parker (Bill Sage) buckling under the pressure of his grief and his inability to connect with his daughters, they run the risk of exposing their ritual of indulging in human flesh.
Check out what Mickle had to say about the challenge of presenting the Parkers both as monsters and as relatable characters in ShockYa.com’s exclusive clip from the film’s DVD and Blu-ray special features selection below, and if you’re hungry for more, “We Are What We Are” is currently available on VOD and makes its DVD and Blu-ray debut today.
