There is a good mix of drama and horror in "We are what we are" directed by Jim Mickle.
'We are what we are' is too arrogant a title which has ever been bestowed on a horror film.However,this film is not at all about arrogance or any other negative behavioral trait.It is the tale of Parker family which is facing tough times after the sudden death of Mrs.Parker in a drowning incident.This sudden demise is merely a cover for even greater things to happen as director Jim Mickle has been true to life in order to honestly depict things which might go wrong in a small town in America.Nature can cause a lot of damage in the form of bad weather.However,it is nothing compared to the damage inflicted by a man on other human beings.Much of the sense of horror is depicted through various settings namely interiors of the house where the father lives with this three children-2 young girls and 1 small boy.There is a good mix of drama in this film based on an original screenplay by Mexican writer Jorge Michel Grau.Lastly,a viewer would be wrong if "Evil dead" is considered ultimate expression of horror film.This viewer would have to watch "We are what we are" to understand how a film invents a completely new genre due to its subject matter.
