Storyline

When the patriarch of the family passes away, the teenage children must take responsibility for the family chores: the preparation of the rituals, the hunting and putting the all-important meat on the table.

This IS what it IS – a subtle drama about cannibals
6 September 2011 | by (Warwick, England (UK)) – See all my reviews

Billed as a 'cannibal gore-fest' (on the DVD cover) this definitely is not. It so isn't, but what it is, is a clever drama about cannibals, with very little cannibalism. It is very much like, and maybe fueled by films like 'Let Me In'.

The film is about a man, who is a father and husband that dies from flash poisoning. He leaves behind a family of four, who will now have to hunt for their own flesh as he was the provider. The family is led by an erratic mother, intent on keeping the 'ritual' alive and keeping her family hidden. This however remains difficult as the sons try to step up and do the hunting (of prostitutes) and mess up, alerting local detectives and prostitutes.

The ending is good and some elements make this film a creditable experience, with some unique flavour (not blood) and I am left admiring it for what it is.
