Lawd amighty do I love We Are What We Are so much! And honestly, if I didn't force myself to watch it as part of the SHOCKtober 2015 Netflix-only movies I might have continued to avoid it because "cannibal family" makes it sound like a tired Texas Chain Saw Massacre rip-off and I avoid those as much as possible. But if my votes counted for this list, well, We Are What We Are would have had three votes. SHOCKtober: bringing people together since whenever the first time I did it was!

WE ARE WHAT WE ARE ha been on my radar for a while. I just haven't had the opportunity to see it yet.

isn't Mickle's film a remake?

Stacie Ponder said...

Yep it’s a gender-swapped remake and apparently very different from the original in other ways, too. I haven’t seen it but it also made it to this SHOCKtober list with one vote.

Legend of Boggy Creek finally makes an appearance. High five to the other person who voted for it!

I have been meaning to see Train to Busan. I have had very good things about it At the very least, I want to get the"song" "Last Train to Busan," which is almost identical to "Last Train to Clarksdale" out of my head.

TRAIN TO BUSAN is great, epseically for a zombie mpvie.

I was lucky to see it at a festival in a cinema full of Korean people, who were just losing their shit over it.
