Crazy New ‘Unholy’ Art Turns the Virgin Mary Into a Demon

We’re finally getting our mid-level horror movies back and the first comes from none other than producer Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures.

In The Unholy (formerly titled Shrine), from Sony Screen Gems, it appears that the demon is none other than the Virgin Mary – or is it just pretending to be so in order to destroy a character’s faith (a little nod to The Exorcist)?

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 (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) 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.”

Evan Spiliotopoulos wrote/directed The Unholy, with the cast also including Katie Aselton, William Sadler, Cricket Brown, Diogo Morgado and Cary Elwes.
