If you’re not a fan of scary movies, then this one isn’t for you. – Netflix has a new horror out, and it’s safe to say it’s leaving viewers feeling terrified.
The movie, titled The Unholy, was initially released two years ago, but has just recently joined the streaming platform and has certainly caught peoples attention.
With no spoilers, the movie is based on the 1983 horror story, Shrine, and follows the story of a young girl named Alice Pagett who suddenly acquires the ability to heal the sick.
She says that the reason she can perform such miracles is because of Virgin Mary, and as news of her powers advances, the word spreads around the town and people herd to see it for themselves – including one disgraced journalist who decides to investigate.
However, it’s not all plain sailing, and as abnormal occurrences begin to unfold, it becomes very clear that there’s a lot more than meets the eye behind theres powers.
The flick stars Cricket Brown as Alice Pagett, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Gerald, William Sadler as Father Hagan, and Cary Elwes as Bishop Gyles. It is directed by Evan Spiliotopoulos and produced by Sam Raimi.
Although receiving mixed reactions and ratings when it was first released, its addition to Netflix has certainly stirred up conversation. – Lots of viewers are taking to Twitter to share how their thoughts after watching.
