Documentary Alabama Snake highlights the story of Pentecostal minister Glenn Summerford — a man accused of attempting to murder his wife with a rattlesnake in the sleepy town of Scottsboro, Alabama — and the investigation and trial that haunted Southern Appalachia for decades.
The film features local historian and folklorist Dr. Thomas Burton, who spent his life studying the culture, beliefs, and folklore of the Pentecostal snake handlers, as he paints a Southern Gothic portrait of Summerford and his tale of demon possession.
Alabama Snake is produced and directed by Theo Love, produced by Bryan Storkel, and written by Love and Storkel. Love and Storkel are both Sidewalk Alumni Filmmakers.
