The first thing I told Jim Mickle when I interviewed him on September 30, 2013, was that his sublime horror film, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, had messed me up bad. And then we both laughed. The story is about a rural family that has stuck with traditions that have outlived their usefulness, and a creepy exploration of what happens when the things we do out of love go very,very wrong. Mickle, whose previous films include STAKELAND, which was also rife with social commentary as well as terror, is a guy with a great sense of humor, as well as a keen understanding of just how to terrify an audience using very little in the way of gore.

Our conversation covered how he went about re-inventing the Mexican film on which this one is based, his growing confidence as a filmmaker, and seeing the world the way an alien newly landed from space would.
