Holy Ghost People, the latest genre film from Mitchell Altieri, one half of “The Butcher Brothers” (The Hamiltons, its sequel The Thompsons, as well as April Fool’s Day and The Violent Kind) has been picked up for distribution by XLrator Media, who will handle the film in all North American territories.
I liked the film, having caught it at SXSW, but I’m hoping they take this chance to tweak some of the elements that didn’t quite work (they had literally just finished that version of the film hours before the SXSW deadline).
Starring Emma Greenwell, Brendan McCarthy, Joe Egender, Cameron Richardson and Roger Aaron Brown, the film begins 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. It World Premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.
