Exclusive video: Jim Mickle and Nick Damici talk “WE ARE WHAT WE ARE”


Adapting the Mexican cannibalism drama for the English language and upstate New York locations, writer/director Jim Mickle and writer/co-star Nick Damici have crafted one of this year’s very best horror films in WE ARE WHAT WE ARE. Yours truly sat down with the duo for an exclusive FANGORIA video interview.

WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, opening in New York and Los Angeles tomorrow, September 27 and expanding to more cities the following weekend from Entertainment One, stars Bill Sage as the patriarch of a secretive clan for whom consuming human flesh has been a ritual dating back centuries. Julia Garner and Ambyr Childers play his teenaged daughters and Jack Gore portrays his little son, and the cast also includes Michael Parks and Kelly McGillis. It’s a very different kind of horror film from Mickle and Damici’s previous urban infection shocker MULBERRY STREET and rural vampire epic STAKE LAND, and in the video (shot by Vivienne Vaughn and edited by Bill Hall), the pair discuss those distinctions, working with their cast, their treatment of cannibalism and more.
