We Are What We Are, a remake of the Mexican horror film of the same name, premiered at Sundance in January to very good reviews.  The first trailer is here, and it is effectively creepy.  I kept waiting for the jump scare, but instead the clip burns slowly and deeply.  The story is set amid a torrential rainstorm that shines a light on the seemingly wholesome Parkers: “As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.”

Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis, Nick Damici, Wyatt Russell, and Jack Gore star.  Directed by Jim Mickle (Stake Land), We Are What We Are opens in limited release on September 27.  Watch the trailer after the jump.
