We Are the Flesh

We Are the Flesh could go down as one of the most disturbing movies that I've ever seen.  And that's a good thing.  It takes a lot for me to be weirded out by a movie, and this one did it 10 fold.  We Are the Flesh is a Mexican arthouse horror film, about a hermit and a brother and sister.  It is dark, forbidden and taboo all at once.  This movie goes places that I've rarely seen in a horror movie, which makes it an amazing film.  It will shock you and entertain you all at the same time. 

We Are the Flesh, is about a brother and sister that have escaped from something.  They end up in what seems to be an old apartment building, where there is a hermit staying.  The hermit is a weird dude, that lives in the complex by himself.  He survives, food wise, by trading something that lives in the wall.  He trades a gasoline type concoction for meat and other things.  Well the brother and sister somewhat befriend him before he takes them down a very dark path.  The hermit, basically makes them both slaves, and forces them to make this cavernous type hell.  Long story short, shit gets really weird from here.  I don't want to spoil it.  This one captivated me and stained my psyche for life.  Again very taboo.  If you're a fan of experimental/out there horror, then this one is for you.

Bottom Line: A deep dark story that takes extremity to a new level.  A very good film, but not for everyone.  I could see this one offending many, but also leaving many applauding.
