A tough film to review without spoiling, Holy Ghost People is a about a young woman, Charlotte, and her search for her missing drug- addict sister. Tracking her down to a secluded religious community in the Appalachian mountains, Charlotte enlists the help of an alcoholic ex-marine to infiltrate the "Church of One Accord," run by Brother Billy, a charismatic snake handler.

At times melodramatic and perhaps plodding. But while not especially fast-paced, this mystery/thriller is nonetheless interesting, well-acted, and edgy, as well as raising some intriguing questions about the potential power of faith—- for good or ill.
