We Are Still Here is a solid horror flick that filled me with a nervous tension particularly in the film's final thirty minutes which is exactly what I ask for from the genre. Writer-director Ted Geoghegan has an eye for the "scary" and manages to carry an uncomfortable mood from beginning to end throwing in several moments of all-out blood-flowing gore. Jumping right into the plot, Geoghegan's tale doesn't drag, but while that's normally a great thing, the Sacchetti house's history -- which plays a pivotal role in the film -- is oftentimes dealt with in much too vague terms. When somewhat major plot aspects are revealed for the first time in an end credit montage, there's a bit of an issue. Granted, I appreciated Geoghegan's tale, I found myself surprised that I actually wanted more detail. Still, this is one of those low budget horror flicks you've probably never heard of, but is worth your time seeking out if this is your kind of thing.
The RyMickey Rating: B
