Holy Ghost People

Dependent upon a desperate, alcoholic stranger (Brendan McCarthy, 2001 Maniacs) for a ride, she ventures to the mountaintop Church of One Accord, a less-than-idyllic commune. The snake-handling, God-fearing families who live and worship there are as tight-lipped about Sis’ whereabouts as they are cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs — metaphorically speaking, of course.

The girls lose their enthusiasm over a week of endless drinking and dicking when

Much bored, she perks up when Frank (Nicholson) drifts in.
