The Unholy Reviews:

I love 80's horror films but they usually don't scare me; i mostly watch them for gore/special effects/monsters/nudity, etc. you don't search in the watered down PG-13 crap that passes for horror today. I must admit this film now creeped me out cute good. THE UNHOLY involves an evil demon that takes the form of a major babe in order to seduce priests so it can claim the innocent for Satan or something like that. It reminded me a lot of the Italian horror film THE CHURCH which i also enjoyed. Both take zone mostly in large Catholic churches and are filled with satanic hallucinations.I won't give it away but the opening stage is simply awesome. The film slows down in the middle but remains ellegant with melody that almost gives it a related feeling to the THE LOST BOYS. It also has lots of cool blue and red lighting which makes it look very 80's. (I mean that in a nice way, not that the movie looks too dated or anything.) It picks back up towards the end and was now starting to receive scary until a couple of cool but funny looking demons present up. There is some sweet gore scenes, cool slimy creature effects, and even some nudity. The pace coulda been a lil faster but the nice finale makes it well worth it. If you like this i would also suggest THE CHURCH and vise versa.


Fresh Orleans church St Agnes has become the grounds of an evil entity, which has tempted the first two priests to their unholy deaths. Later the head of the church gets Father Cross, who they believed is spiritually blessed to take over the church. The evil is in the form of a ravishing beauty, whom does its greatest to seduce Cross and create him commit the ultimate sin, which will see him, end up in hell.Looking at the mark line "Seduction. Submission. Murder. Tonight… evil goes over the edge." Well this doesn't really happen until the last 10 minutes, because the lead up to the hysterically bold and bloody climax with ridiculous rubber demons is damaged by a flat script and woodenly uninterested performances. The main trouble I found was that it seems to coast along, with very tiny event and the talky script was less than engaging with its uneven context covering religion and sexual repression. Not supporting was that the straight-faced premise is the same-old, same-old for those familiar with the sub-genre, and succumbs to trashy silliness. One or two decent set-pieces (like an ominous sounding smartphone call) slowly creep up onto the viewer, and Camilo Vila's smoothly sterile direction drips with moody brushes, sexual allurement and dreary lighting that creates a visually smoky atmosphere. The melody score had that oddly uncanny vibe, which can come across quite bloated. The unique results were cute much a misfire, though I didn't think that they were the finished pits. Actually what really caught my eye was the curious help cast featuring Ned Betty, Hal Halbrook, Trevor Howard and William Russ. Jill Carroll turned out okay and Russ was great, but the former did tiny to nothing. Ben Cross' sombre performance in the lead role is ploddingly lacking. The irresistible Nicole Fortier as the demonic entity, "The Unholy" glows with seductive temptation and can hold you glued. At least she's turned on for the occasion.Been down this both before, and what's served up here is cheap, and mostly uninspired. Not awful, though.


This film was very entertaining and had some really cool 80's unique effects(my favorite). I also watched this on Fear.net for the first time(as a poster stated). I was really wrapped up in the storyline but when the demon midget exploded I almost wet myself. I don't know why but it caught me off guard. I still chuckle when I think of the stage but it didn't crash the film for me. I didn't watch this film as a child like most of my favourite horror films from the 80's but I really enjoyed it. I guess I somehow missed this film as kid, as I have no memory of it. I don't even remember it on the shelf at my local video shop and Southtown Video had a ton of horror movies. Oh well, I guess it was a tiny city video shop after all. I suggest it to any horror fanatic and especially to 80's horror fans.
