The Mexican fantasy horror We Are The Flesh has secured a release date in the US and it is set for a limited theatrical run from Friday 13th January 2017. The film is twisted and critically acclaimed, having been praised for its controversial depiction of a post-apocalyptic world, general weirdness and Cronenbergian traits.
After the end of the world, a young brother and sister roam an apocalyptic city looking for food and shelter. They take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit who makes them a dangerous offer to survive. He puts them to work building a bizarre cavernous structure, where he acts out his insane and depraved fantasies. Trapped in a maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of dark and forbidden behaviour.
We Are The Flesh comes from writer-director Emiliano Rocha Minter and stars Noe Hernandez, Maria Evoli and Diego Gamaliel. The film will be released in the USA on 13th January and will be released in the UK on DVD and blu-ray on 13th February 2017.
