In the What We Become trailer, we clearly see that what they become is zombies. Blood-thirsty zombies. What We Become is a 2015 Danish zombie horror movie by first-time director, Bo Mikkelsen. It stars Mille Dinesen, Troels Lyby, Benjamin Engell and Marie Hammer Boda.
The Johansson family’s idyllic summer is brought to a sudden halt as deaths stack up from a virulent strand of the flu. The authorities start off by cordoning off the neighborhood, but soon panic and force the inhabitants into quarantine in their hermetically-sealed houses. Isolated from the rest of the world, teen Gustav spies out and realizes that the situation is getting out of control. He breaks out, but soon the family of four comes under attack from the wild, blood-thirsty mob who forces them to the extreme to escape alive.
What We Become (aka Sorgenfri) is Denmark’s first post-apocalyptic zombie movie. It will open on Friday, May 13th, in New York at the IFC Center and Los Angeles at the Arena Theater and will also be available for digital streaming through all major VOD outlets on the very same day. Awesome. Hopefully, it will be available worldwide.
It looks pretty good and it centers around a family trying to survive so it should be relatable. I’m definitely putting What We Become on my watchlist.
