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…



Ghosts of the Ozarks is listed as a mystery/thriller, and it delivers. Early in the film, I was drawn into the mystery of what was happening in the mountains. There were additional layers added on for most of the characters presented, and they all were tied to the overarching story of the town. This built well for the conflicts and other relationships taking place.” Guild Master Gaming
