You know what’s the perfect film to watch on easter a supernatural horror film with the virgin mary is so exciting so let’s get to the review today we will be talking about the new supernatural horror film called the unholy it is written and directed by even spiel tools in his directorial debut.
it stars Jeffrey dean morgan Katie Casselton William Sedler Diogo morgaudu cricket brown and Carrie elwes this film is about this young hearing-impaired girl named Alice 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 flocked to witness her miracles a disgraced journalist played by Jeffrey d morgan hopes to revive his career as he visits the small new England town to investigate.
I initially wasn’t planning on reviewing this film because I hadn’t seen any trailers or even heard of this movie even though it was filmed in my state of Massachusetts my girlfriend Maddie and I became curious so we went to see it on easter night being the perfect movie for the holiday, unfortunately, this isn’t a perfect one for the holiday that ultimately left me bored and unsatisfied.
one of the reasons this movie fails is that it is not scary I didn’t find this movie to be ever frightening or ever uncomfortable the film relies heavily on CGI to capture its scary villain who looked incredibly fake with a terrible character design the film also lacks any sort of suspense the film doesn’t even try to play around with the audience fears or even make them interested.

the film also has some of the most annoying and egregious jump scares I have ever seen in a long time they are so cheap and completely undeserving because the jump scares are jacked up to a 700 volume comparative to the rest of the film once the scare happens you’re not scared anymore but just by out of nowhere sound the horror is very manipulative in that way which made me quite angry.
I’m not sure why the director chose to go in this direction of horror when he has always been a writer who has never associated himself with any kind of horror content sam Raimi was also credited as a producer on this film which probably helped make this movie watchable and some of its horror elements not be the worst thing in the world the next massive issue I have with the film is that it is simply so ridiculously dull.
the first act of this movie is quite interesting considering I didn’t even know what this movie was about so the movie was slowly revealing itself as it went along which I enjoyed but once you get past that the movie doesn’t know what to do with itself and becomes a big long boar.
a good chunk of this movie doesn’t have any suspense or any terrifying scenes it is a long boring force dialogue that is very uninteresting to listen to the film tries later in the middle of the second act to throw in random jump-scare scenes that feel like they were added while filming because they realized they were no scary scenes.
I also found the direction to be quite dull and very stale throughout there really weren’t any significant or memorable shots in the film it’s serviceable for this kind of movie but nothing to make it feel like it has any kind of style or freshness to it.
I also found the music to be very overbearing and used inappropriately throughout it was pretty dull and forgettable trying to drown us out being so overly bombastic that it honestly annoyed me quite a bit the cinematography is also very dull to look at literally nothing exciting or even remotely interesting to look at.
I know it’s trying to go for the dark dreaded look but it probably could have used a little bit more colour or made it darker to enhance the mood like a movie like hereditary the film does have a few positives here starting with the acting is entirely serviceable and acceptable for this film as none of the actors are very distracting.
but none of the actors do a really good job it was enough to keep me pulled into the story and world this film created this film does have its basic three-act structure that I found works for this movie treading right along sure it was very predictable as we the audience were always ahead of the film which is never a good sign.
but at least I always knew what was going on overall this is an awful film that I don’t think anyone needs to go out of their way of watching many people will be bored with this film with its horrific cheap jump scares poorly written characters and being generic as hell to end up being nothing don’t even waste your money to see this film I’m giving the unholy a 3 out of 10.
