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
Philip Yordan originally wrote this script in the 70s after the box office successes of films like The Exorcist (1973) and The Omen (1976). Director Vila found the script years later in Yordan's office while they were working on something else, liked it and asked if he could use it. See more »
Someone around here just hates priests... Maybe it's the way they make coffee.

A demon preys on priests caught in the act of sinning. This horror film has one of the best cast ever put together in a horror film, scary special effects, a well plotted and interesting script, and solid direction. However, even though the film seems to have all the right ingredients for success, it simply never gels together. Nicole Fortier is absolutely flawless as the demon. Rated R; Nudity, Graphic Violence, and Profanity.
*This film has one of the best trailers ever in cinema history.
