'We Are What We Are,' directed by Jim Mickle.

The first trailer for writer/director Jim Mickle's "We Are What We Are," a remake of a 2010 Spanish film "Somos Lo Que Hay" about a small town religious family maintaining their long tradition of ritual cannibalism, has landed.

Well-reviewed at Sundance and Cannes, the film stars Kelly McGillis, Ambyr Childers and Odeya Rush as members of the flesh-eating sect. After the matriarch dies, the family struggles to preserve normalcy when a mysterious religious zealot (played by Bill Sage) becomes head of the household.

If this trailer is any indication, perhaps such a thing as a smart horror film that doesn't rely solely on jump scares exists after all. We'll find out when Entertainment One opens the elegantly shot film in limited release on September 27. Read our TOH! interview with Mickle here; Indiewire's enthusiastic review from Sundance here.
