We Are What We Are Vintage Country 1957-1969

We Are What We Are, the US remake of the Mexican horror film “Somos lo que Hay”  debuted at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and is now releasing a soundtrack which includes a track by Fervor Vintage Masters artist Tommy Strange and the Features.

The 1967 song It Was Me That Made Her Bad was one of three Fervor Records cuts heard in the rural psychological thriller, along with the 1957 tune I’ll Pretend (Glen Morris) and A Child Alone (Eddie Eldon).  The first two appear on the popular compilation release Vintage Country, 1957-1969 (pictured above).

Critically acclaimed, this creepy remake from filmmaker Jim Mickle (Stake Land) was called ‘better than the original’ by Indiewire.com’s Eric Kohn and ‘one of the best horror films of 2013′ by HollywoodChicago.com.

We Are What We Are is slated for a limited US theatrical release on Sept. 27th, and the soundtrack drops Tuesday Sept. 24th on Milan Records.

She Was Never Mine To Lose, a 1967 track by Tommy Strange and the Features made its way into this quirky film about a man seeking vengeance for the suspicious death of his beloved dog.  The other cut is Bozo Darnell’s tearful 1968 classic, A Shade Of Difference.  

Revenge For Jolly was picked up for distribution by Sony Pictures, but has yet to announce any official release date.  However, it debuted at the Tribeca and Cannes Film Festivals in 2012 and was met with critical acclaim.
