Sam Raimi is listed among the producers for The Unholy, so that bodes well for this Jeffrey Dean Morgan-starring tale of a teenaged girl (Cricket Brown) whose visions of the Virgin Mary bring miracles — but also some verrrry unsettling darkness. It’s certainly an alt-Easter cinematic selection, and its trailer is here.
The Unholy is written and directed by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast, Charlie’s Angels), and is based on James Herbert’s best-selling book Shrine. Alongside Morgan and Brown, the cast also includes Katie Aselton, Cary Elwes, and William Sadler.
The Unholy releases on April 15 in Australian cinemas.
