The Unholy Trailer: A Disgraced Journalist Investigates A Faith-Based Horror

The upcoming film is due in theaters on April 2.


Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the first official trailer for The Unholy, an upcoming PG-13 horror film written and directed by Evan Spiliotopoulos in his directorial debut, scheduled to be released in theaters on April 2.

According to an official synopsis, The Unholy "follows Alice, a young hearing-impaired girl who, after a supposed visitation from the Virgin Mary, is inexplicably able to hear, speak and heal the sick. As word spreads and people from near and far flock to witness her miracles, a disgraced journalist hoping to revive his career visits the small New England town to investigate. When terrifying events begin to happen all around, he starts to question if these phenomena are the works of the Virgin Mary or something much more sinister."

Alice is played by Cricket Brown (Dukeland), and the journalist trying to claw his way to a career comeback is played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead). Check out the trailer below.

The Unholy, which is based upon James Herbert's best-selling horror novel Shrine from 1983, also stars Katie Aselton (The League), William Sadler (Iron Man 3), Diogo Morgado (MacGyver), and Cary Elwes (Saw). In addition to Spiliotopoulos, The Unholy is co-produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.

While both greater New York and Los Angeles area movie theater markets are making plans to cautiously re-open with restrictions in place, it may soon be a whole new (old) ballgame around how movie releases work this year--hopefully sooner rather than later.
