Evan Spiliotopoulos wrote/directed The Unholy, which has a cast including “The Walking Dead’s” Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Katie Aselton, William Sadler (Demon Knight, Bogus Journey), Cricket Brown, Diogo Morgado and SAW‘s Cary Elwes.
“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.”
The film is based on James Herbert’s novel Shrine, published in 1983.
