More of a tongue-and-cheek take on the haunted house genre with ample gore, than a fright show. We Are Still Here is just as cliched as it is inventive, with much of the cleverness coming from its townspeople angle. The reasoning for them and the ghost's agenda is sadly guesswork rather than being well conveyed. Although the emotion is one-note, the actors are good in their stereotypes, and the climax is exciting.
Terrible. Every single cliché put together. I wasn't even scared or interested in what was going on. The most intriguing thing about it was trying to figure out why they would cast an actress with the fakest lips ever to do the hobo-hippie medium role. Doesn't even qualify as a B-movie.
This silly horror-comedy inspired by Lucio Fulci's oeuvre belongs to the American New Wave of Recollectionism (e.g. It Follows, House of the Devil). A 1970s inspired pastiche whose only scares are induced by Lisa Marie's plastic surgery.Director Ted Geoghegan explains storyline five times throughout the movie and closing titles, just in case the viewers were too busy texting. No, WASH will not become a cult movie.
Economic in runtime but liberal in bloodletting Geoghegan's 'We Are Still Here' is solid genre filmmaking with a debt to Fulci. Well plotted and well cast the film may well not be original but certainly delivers the goods.
This was a great little mood piece until one of the characters goes crazy and then the film reveals it's ambition to merely be a gorefest (and a not terribly original one). Still, I'm interested what this filmmaker will do in the future.
As hilariously awful as I suspect a horror movie can get. The acting is so god awful that it turns it into a weird trashy horror movie and sitcom hybrid. While it is a terrible film, it can’t be said that is isn’t a lot of fun to watch this masterpiece of unintentional humor, on par with the likes of Plan Nine from Outer Space.
Ridiculous. Laughable. A competent, if very common first act degrades into a parody of itself in the most unintentionally funny climax I have seen in a "serious" horror flick. Also, did J&B sponsor this? Why was that whisky bottle in every fucking scene? || MotelX 2015
