Them That Follow is a classic tale of girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love, girl must defy her snake-obsessed pastor father to marry boy and potentially get people killed in the process . . . OK, so, maybe it's not your average story.
The upcoming thriller from directors Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage, due out on Aug. 2, takes place deep in Appalachia, where Pastor Lemuel Childs (Walton Goggins) leads an isolated community of "serpent handlers," a Pentecostal sect who pick up and hold venomous snakes as a way to prove to God that they are worthy. Childs' daughter, Mara (Alice Englert), has been promised to another boy in town, but her secret romance with a man outside of their community threatens to tear her world apart.
