Rating: Not Rated Stars: Thomas Hobson, Tara Perry, Phil Morris, Angela Bettis, Joseph Ruud, Tim Blake Nelson, David Arquette Writers: Jordan Wayne Long and Tara Perry, story consultant Sean Anthony Davis Directors: Matt Glass & Jordan Wayne Long Distributor: XYZ Films Releasing Release Date: February 3, 2022 GHOSTS OF THE OZARKS is a rather bland title for a well-executed tale of period folk horror. The movie owes a debt to two other films. To name these would give the game away. Suffice to say that it’s a respectable homage to one, and a big improvement on the other, though it […]Read On »
