I just watched this very powerful documentary where Bill provided the narration. THE LAST MOUNTAIN documents a town’s war against the powerful coal industry and lobby seeking to keep up the use of fossil fuels instead of making the conversion to renewable energy sources. It was wonderful listening to Bill’s voice, however, it cannot be stated so clearly that we need to end our dependency on these damaging, and outdated fuels.
According to the website Bloody Disgusting is reporting Bill’s film THE UNHOLY will be coming to home media this summer. Box art included below. No word yet on any extras. Here’s hoping there are a lot with Bill. Box art is included below.
Sam Raimi-Produced ‘The Unholy’ Gets a Home Release This Summer
From producer Sam Raimi (Crawl, Don’t Breathe, Evil Dead) and his Ghost House Pictures comes the supernatural The Unholy, which Meagan Navarro called “sinfully bland religious horror.”
After a theatrical run this past spring, The Unholy is making its way to Digital HD on May 25th before arriving on all VOD platforms, DVD and Blu-ray June 22nd.
There are no special features as of this writing.
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.
On behalf of WILLIAM SADLER ONLINE I’d like to wish Bill the happiest of birthdays. He turns a young 71 today and here’s hoping he spends it with Marni, Sadler, his daughter, grandbabies, and Raj. Take care dear man.
We have a new remaster of Bill’s film THE HOT SPOT where he plays the part of the squirrely Frank Sutton. One of many “Franks” Bill has played. The video has many features that are listed below.

THE HOT SPOT (SPECIAL EDITION)
Synopsis: Brand New 2K Master, Color Graded and Approved by Cinematographer Ueli Steiger! From Dennis Hopper, the legendary director of Easy Rider, The Last Movie, Out of the Blue, Colors and Backtrack, comes this torrid and erotic neo-noir starring Don Johnson (Dead Bang), Virginia Madsen (Candyman) and Jennifer Connelly (Career Opportunities). Exploding in a series of suspenseful twists and passionate encounters, this ingenious film will keep you guessing until its final, shocking climax. Harry Maddox (Johnson) is a handsome drifter who is not above larceny to make ends meet. After staging a daring daylight robbery at a local bank, he receives an alibi from an unexpected ally: Dolly Harshaw (Madsen), a sexy and mysterious local woman who has her own plans for him. But when Harry falls for another beautiful woman (Connelly), he incurs Dolly’s wrath and finds himself caught in a maze of jealousy, betrayal and murder in which escape is impossible… and danger is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Beautifully shot by Ueli Steiger (The Day After Tomorrow) and co-starring William Sadler (Die Hard 2), Charles Martin Smith (The Untouchables), Jerry Hardin (Wolf Lake), Barry Corbin (My Science Project), Jack Nance (Eraserhead) and Virgil Frye (Revenge of the Ninja), The Hot Spot also features outstanding music from such blues and jazz legends as John Lee Hooker, Miles Davis and Taj Mahal.
