We Are What We Are


With Jim Mickle, Bill Sage, Nick Damici, and Julia Garner in person  

Dir. Jim Mickle. 2013, 105 mins. With Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Kelly McGillis, Nick Damici. A riveting and intense horror thriller that got rave reviews at its Sundance premiere, Jim Mickle’s reimagining of a Mexican movie of the same title is about a reclusive family that practices violent, secret rituals. According to IndieWire, it “brings the filmmaker’s distinct blend of the elegant and the macabre to its ultimate realization. Outdoing the original by a long shot, Mickle’s slow-burn take on the story is poetic, creepy and, finally, satisfyingly gross.” Sage brings somber intensity to the role of a grieving patriarch.
