In New Orleans, a series of horrific murders of priests are occurring around the city's Catholic churches. The diocese calls in Father Michael (Cross) to fight the powerful demon, known as Daesidarius, or The Unholy. The Father's faith is tested almost to the breaking point as the demon - disguised as a stunningly beautiful lady - attempts to seduce Father Michael into breaking his vows. Father Michael soon learns how the Unholy works - by murdering the sinner in the act of sinning, then sending that person's soul to Hell. Will this one priest's inner strength be enough to stop this monster - or will he join the ranks of the other ill-fated priests?Written by
Ben Cross plays Father Michael,a Catholic priest who ends up at an abandoned New Orleans church where two previous priests have been ghoulishly murdered on their own altar.Pretty soon he's dealing with an inquiring detective,a reticent archbishop,a pseudo-Satanist named Luke,a virgin and a blind priest who keeps trying to warn him that the Devil is more than an idea.There is also red-headed demon played by Nicole Fortier who provides some lovely full-frontal nudity."The Unholy" is a pretty weak horror film with some familiar cast and tons of clichés.There is some gore including blood vomiting,but nothing really shocking or impressive.I really wanted to like this film,but I couldn't.5 out of 10.
