Most people, if not all, look forward to new beginnings. A fresh start tends to come with endless possibilities and one really could rebuild his/her life. 'Ghosts of the Ozarks' is about one of those new beginnings but it's about one of those new beginnings that go, should we say, South?

The film is set in the 1800s and follows the horrors that unfold after a man notices that his new town of residence is a hotspot for the paranormal. If you're new to horror films set in a different era, you could consider watching Robert Eggers' 'The Lighthouse' and 'The Witch,' James Watkin's 'The Woman In Black,' and Jordan Peele's 'Us.'
