We Are What We Are (2013)
First screened in January 2014
Director: Jim Mickle. Cast: Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Bill Sage, Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis, Kassie Wesley DePaiva, Wyatt Russell, Jack Gore, Annemarie Lawless, Traci Hovel, Nat DeWolf. Screenplay: Jim Mickle and Nick Damici (based on an earlier screenplay by Jorge Michel Grau).

Twitter Capsule: Director proves his talent, but Jesus Christ! (Doubles as a pushed-too-far response plus a statement of theme.)

VOR:   Remake adds little to the legacy except a promising reel of Mickle's interesting palette and knack for atmosphere. Hope he stretches it. Unevenly inspired.
