Spoiler Review for “We Are What We Are”

Alright, so in the last five minutes of the film, when the two possible saviors of the children had been incapacitated and everyone was back at the farmhouse, I knew how this was going to end, since most art horror films end this way… the father was going to make them eat the poisoned stew, they were going to do it because they had been completely broken by his abuse and the abuse of their ‘clan,’ and then the bodies would be found the next day. I even found myself thinking, ‘Well, so what if anyone who can help them is gone? Why can’t one of the girls free herself, or themselves? Yeah, but that never happens in these movies.’ Suffice to say, shortly after I had that thought, the movie, err, corrected my erroneous assumption. I was not expecting that final scene.
