Remake that surpasses its predecesso­r

We Are What We Are Amazon Prime Video ●●●●●


Jim Mickle’s remake of the 2010 Mexican horror of the same name is one of those rarest of beasts – a reboot that’s superior to the original.

Mickle proved with Stake Land that he can serve up terrific horror and while this falls short of those high standards, the thrills and chills flow thick and fast.

The plot follows the seemingly wholesome Parker family and gruesome secrets they are keeping behind closed doors.

There’s moments of horrific violence and an overrelian­ce on grief, with Mickle pulling top turns from his committed cast.
