I am a big fan of Jim Mickle and Jim Damici’s previous collaboration, Stake Land, and this looks like it is even more up my alley.

Gothic horror, small town secrets, family traditions.

I know I am looking very forward to We Are What We Are, a remake of a 2010 Mexican film that has gender-flipped several of the roles, and move it from urban Mexico to the rural US.

Damici and Mickle seem to specialize in a rural New York/Pennsylvania setting that is somewhat unique to films- certainly to horror- and have brought in a great cast- Michael Parks, Damici, Kelly McGillis, Bill Sage, and Julia Garner.

Jim Mickle is high on my “to watch” list, and is the most represented director in this year’s Trailers other than Brit Ben Wheatley.
