I re-watched The Butcher Brother's THE VIOLENT KIND over the weekend and even though I'm still confused about what the hell was going on in the flick I found that I still friggin' love the tonal shift of the film, making it my favorite so far from the Bros.
We've been covering HOLY GHOST PEOPLE, the latest from Mitchell Altieri, one half of the dynamic duo Butcher Brothers, and have seen some images and a chilling trailer over the past month, but today we have something extra groovy for ya. Just ahead of the films screening this weekend at SXSW we have a look at the festival one-sheet, courtesy the fine folks over at The Playlist.
In this psychological thriller, nineteen-year old Charlotte enlists the help of alcoholic ex-Marine Wayne to find her estranged sister who has gone missing deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Their search leads them to the Church of One Accord and an enigmatic snake-handling preacher named Brother Billy, who's devoted congregation of outcasts knowingly risk injury or death seeking salvation in the Holy Ghost. What Wayne and Charlotte uncover during their time on the mountain - about themselves and the nature of faith - will shake them to their core, as the mystery of Charlotte's sister and her fate unravels...
Emma Greenwell, Brendan McCarthy, Cameron Richardson and Butcher Brothers regular Joe Egender star, with story and screenplay credits by Altieri, Egender, Kevin Artigue and Phil Flores, the other Butcher Brother.
