This probably hits a little too close to home since I live in Lexington, KY. Believe me when I tell you the counties surrounding my great city are not as civilized. Snake-handling is often times kept on the down-low around these parts. The stigma attached to such circles is enough to keep most folks away. Hell, I grew up Baptist, and that was traumatic enough. Imagine introducing some deadly venomous snakes to the mix.
The Butcher Brothers are happy to announce their newest film hits VOD on February 18 and theaters on February 21. The impressive cast includes Emma Greenwell (Shameless), Brendan McCarthy (True Blood & Justified), Joe Egender (The Frankenstein Theory), and Cameron Richardson (Alvin & the Chipmunks).
Stick around for a full review of the film later in the week and an interview with star, Emma Greenwell. I post a ton of trailers, par for the course with a site like this, but HOLY GHOST PEOPLE has me legitimately excited. Fingers crossed for no Kentucky jokes.
“Holy Ghost People is a Southern Gothic thriller about a teenager searching for her lost sister in the Appalachian Mountains, where she encounters a snake-handling religious cult and eventually learns the truth about her sister’s fate.”
