I must admit to not hearing a thing about this one until the email popped into my inbox late yesterday, but I like what I see – and even though snakes scare the life out of me, I’m also strangely drawn to them. I will be checking this out for sure.

Here’s the official blurb:

Snake handlers are spiritual renegades belonging to an obscure sect of American Pentecostalism: part of a century-old tradition of worshipping with venomous snakes during church services. Seeing themselves as the vanguards of salvation in a morally bankrupt world, believers put their lives on the line,

Them That Follow – Review

Opening this weekend is a film about the members of a bizarre religious cult, who put themselves in dire danger, even risking death, at their services and meetings. What country is the home of such fanaticism, urging heavenly forces to protect them as they stare down doom. Most likely a faraway land, perhaps in an underdeveloped impoverished nation? Nope, this new film is set in the world of “serpent-handling” a religious rite that sprang up in this country, the U.S. of A in the last century, mainly in isolated rural communities. Most states have outlawed these rituals, but that doesn’t stop many congregations from gathering in secret locations to test their faith by scooping up rattlesnakes. So, is this film an investigative documentary, full of “hidden camera” footage? Actually, this is a family drama, focusing in on a forbidden love triangle. With hissing snakes. That weird world is

‘Them That Follow’: Serpents & Sins Dance Toward A Reckoning [Review]

What’s the cliched, glib version of a cult set in the Appalachian Mountains? If it’s crazy preachers, brainwashed followers, sinister rituals, and snakes, you’ve come to the right place: all those familiar chestnuts are on display in Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage‘s feature debut, “Them That Follow.” But give them credit nonetheless, they take this foreboding and forbidden texture and turn it into something that’s also terrifying.

‘Them That Follow’ Review: An Almighty Cast Raises Up a Tale of Faith Gone Dangerously Wrong

In 2014, Kentucky pastor Jamie Coots died after being bit by a rattlesnake during a service at his tiny Middlesboro, Ky church. It was the tenth time the Pentecostal leader had been bitten during his tenure as a snake handler, and the last time he refused medical attention for a poisonous bite. At the time, his son Cody told the local CBS affiliate, “When it’s your time to go, it’s just your time to go.” Such is the faith that guides the kind of Pentecostal snake handlers who populate Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage’s “Them That Follow,” devotees of Christ who interpret the King James Bible to literally encourage them to “take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.”

Deep in Appalachia, the decades-old practice continues in a handful of churches, places just like the one where Coots received his final bite.

Movie Review – Them That Follow (2019)

Them That Follow, 2019.

Written and Directed by Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage.

Starring Alice Englert, Walton Goggins, Thomas Mann, Olivia Colman, Kaitlyn Dever, Jim Gaffigan, and Lewis Pullman.

Synopsis:

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.

Sometimes all you need is an intriguing cast to elevate material that never lives up to its full potential. Written and directed by the filmmaking duo of Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage (they are making their directorial debut and have previously collaborated on the short film Lizard King), Them That Follow takes the premise of a small community of Bible-thumpers living somewhere off the grid in Appalachia that also wrangle venomous snakes for the purpose of using them as a

‘Them That Follow’ Examines the Poison of Fanatacism and Poverty in Appalachia
Fresh from her Oscar win for The Favourite, the indisputably great Olivia Colman shows up in Them That Follow as a snake-handling Pentecostal congregationalist in the Appalachian mountains who finds her faith sorely tested. You might want to read that sentence twice since this movie does not follow any traditional paths. But the faith it examines, in practice for more than 100 years, is considered a religious freedom by those even in areas that seek to outlaw it. Writer-directors Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage do not come from a Pentecostal church background,

‘Them That Follow’ Review: Dirs. Britt Poulton, Dan Madison Savage (2019) [Eiff]

YouTube

Following her Oscar win earlier this year, Olivia Colman swaps out regal rants for religious preaching in Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage’s debut Them That Follow.

Set in the Appalachian Mountains, Them That Follow follows the members of an intimate Pentecostal community where religion takes precedence over all else. When Mara (Alice Englert) ends up pregnant just before her arranged marriage to Garrett (Lewis Pullman), it sets off a horrible chain of events when the real father of the baby, faithless Auggie (Thomas Mann), gets bitten by a venomous snake. Hoping faith will save him, refusing to get him seen by a doctor, the whole community find themselves in uproar and anarchy as his faith is tested to the limit and Mara’s secret gets out – mostly upsetting her dad, the town preacher (Walton Goggins), and Auggie’s deeply religious mother (Colman).

It’s a very patriarchal piece; as a result,

Eiff 2019: Review of Them That Follow

Slightly stodgy drama/thriller from co-writer-directors Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage, concerning hysterical snake-handling Pentecostal Christians in Appalachia, the main draw being the presence of recent Oscar winner Olivia Colman. Alice Allegra Englert plays Mara, a young woman torn between loyalty to her bonkers pastor father (Walton Goggins) and love for her former beau, Augie (Thomas Mann), a non-believer. Colman plays Augie's mother, a local busybody, and although top-billed, essentially provides a supporting role.

The film ploughs a fairly well-worn furrow, that of the innocent caught between religion and reason. Mara is emotionally blackmailed into marrying a local believer named Garret (Lewis Pullman), a 'good man' whose intentions seem noble, but mask deep insecurities.
