Set deep in the wilds of Appalachia, where believers handle death-dealing snakes to prove themselves before God, Them That Follow tells the story of a pastor's daughter who holds a secret that threatens to tear her community apart.
A married couple is forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted from war-torn Eritrea, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher threatens his status as an all-star student.
I literally can't believe this movie was made on a 10 mil budget . If the director had a slightly more polished script, and perhaps the guidance of more experienced film makers / studio reps - this would be an amazing movie . As it stands , it's pretty damn good and impressive.
Visually - it's wonderful. The costume / set design is truly transportive. I feel like it's been a while since I've seen a fantasy movie like this and it was such a breathe of fresh air. Very original.
I can't wait to see what this director does in her future projects.
