We Are What We Are (USA)
Dir: Jim Mickle
Toronto After Dark kicked off last night with Jim Mickle’s latest, the highly anticipated We Are What We Are, a re-imagining of Jorge Michel Grau’s Mexican film of the same name. The plot follows a reclusive, poor, rural family that partakes in an unusual tradition: cannibalism. After a brutal storm results in a family tragedy, eldest daughter Iris (Ambyr Childers) finds herself responsible for the yearly ritual. But as the investigation of a number of missing people in the area brings the local authorities to their property, the lives of the family members begin to unravel.
The folks at Millennium Entertainment have given us an exclusive clip from Spiders 3D, full of creepy crawly, flesh-eating arachnid goodness. The latest film from Tibor Takács (The Gate) is getting its Toronto premiere at tonight’s CineMacabre movie night (9pm, Bell Lightbox Theatre in Toronto), complete with 3-D glasses, prizes and a Skype interview with the director! More details on the screening and a trailer here: http://www.rue-morgue.com/events/cinemacabre. Time to get creature feature crazy!

He will be in back in the city this Saturday for a showing of his well-regarded 1988 remake of the cult classic The Blob. He recently sat down with Rue Morgue to talk about his life and films.
