We Are What We Are

A horror story that begins in a terrible rainstorm and the death of Mrs. Parker (from what we don’t know at this point). She left behind a husband, 2 daughters, and a son. The movie is the events that unfold after their mother’s death that reveal the complex family secrets. This is really a very interesting movie that takes what could have been a B-rate movie and turns it into an A rate movie through exquisitely beautiful cinematography and careful storytelling. The movie is so well made the realization you are watching a horror movie doesn’t come until much later – the story just kind of creeps up on you. It is also pretty solid commentary on patriarchy and its consequences. Thumbs up for a very interesting and well-directed movie (and a movie that probably will be mostly of interest to those who like mystery/horror genre). (2013; 4 Stars)
