Horror at Cannes: "We Are What We Are (Somos lo que hay)"

The most buzzworthy horror film at Cannes this year is the Mexican cannibal film "We Are What We Are". The debut feature of Jorge Michel Grau is gaining comparisons to the 2008 Cannes breakout hit "Let the Right One In" for delivering a mature film that uses a horror premise to tell a story of family drama. It follows a family of ritualistic cannibals who must find new means of survival after the death of their father who has always been the one to, erm, bring home the bacon.
