Jim Mickle, director of Stake Land and Mulberry Street, is veering into new territory that is decidely much, much different than his previous efforts with We Are What We Are, opening in select theaters on September 27th.
Inside, we scored an exclusive featurette about the film which finds some of the talent involved discussing the project.
Here’s the plot crunch: A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers, have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.
