Thomas Hobson in Ghosts of the Ozarks
There is no such thing as a utopian society as indicated in the horror movie Ghosts of the Ozarks. For actor Thomas Hobson, it is his journey into a new film genre.
The film follows a Black physician from the North, who travels to the friendly South—only to discover the utopian society is more of a horrific nightmare.
Here is the official synopsis: In post-Civil War Arkansas, a young doctor is mysteriously summoned to a remote town in the Ozarks only to discover that the utopian paradise is filled with secrets and surrounded by a menacing, supernatural presence.
The film stars Thomas Hobson (That Girl Lay Lay), Phil Morris (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Meet the Spartans), Tara Perry (12 Hour Shift, The Fresh Beat Band), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Though, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), Angela Bettis (May, Girl, Interrupted), and David Arquette (Never Been Kissed, Scream franchise). Matt Glass and Jordan Wayne Long directed the movie from the screenplay written by Long and Perry, along with Sean Anthony Davis.
