Plot – Spoilers:
The American remake of the Mexican film, We Are What We Are maintains the same premise of an isolated family that indulges in cannibalism as part of a religious tradition going back to the late 18th century. But it’s also radically different in certain tangents that it goes off on and explores the history behind why they are the way they are. There are also more distractions from the outside world here and the motivation for those snooping around them is also different here.
If you haven’t watched either, we’d recommend watching the original first, because this is one of those very rare situations where the remake didn’t manage to fuck up the original. In fact, this American remake might even be better, with a more appetizing finale.
