    We Are What We Are

    ★★★

    Its so rare nowadays to watch a film without knowing exactly what you're getting yourself into. We Are What We Are was exactly that for me. The film manages never to be formulaic or predictable. Rather than rely on sudden shocks or over the top gore to get under your skin it starts off very discretely, only hinting of what dark secret this family is keeping.
