[SXSW ’13] Trailer, First Images From The Butcher Brothers’ ‘Holy Ghost People’

We’ve just now landed the first official image and festival trailer for Holy Ghost People, the latest genre film from Mitchell Altieri, one half of “The Butcher Brothers.”

Penned by Altieri, as well as Kevin Artigue, Joe Egender, and Phil Flores, “On the trail of her missing sister, Charlotte enlists the help of Wayne, an ex-Marine and alcoholic, to infiltrate the Church of One Accord – a community of snake-handlers who risk their lives seeking salvation in the Holy Ghost.

Emma Greenwell, Brendan McCarthy, Joe Egender, Cameron Richardson, Roger Aaron Brown all star in the film set to premiere at next week’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

The Butcher Brothers directed The Hamiltons, its sequel The Thompsons, as well as April Fool’s Day and The Violent Kind.



  • Regardless of how interesting the concept may sound, nothing that the Butcher bros. has ever done has been good, IMO. They have very solid ideas, and some instances of creativity, but the execution on films like ‘The Thompsons’, ‘The Hamiltons’ and ‘The Violent Kind’ are so unbelievably atrocious, that I have nothing but low expectations for this film. They have great ideas, but maybe they need to let someone else handle the actual execution.
