We Are What We Are

We Are What We Are 2013.jpg

The film starts with a lady struggling in a torrential down pour. The dull weather sets the tone for this moody drama and its eeriness seeps off the screen. You are shown the lives of a strange family that seems to be harboring a secret in a small town in the US. The pace is slow as the director counts on the atmosphere to keep you hooked. It does, except Netflix gave away the plot in the description. I wonder if my rating would have been higher had I seen it without reading the badly written synopsis.

Rating: * *
