‘The Unholy’ Trailer: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Investigates A Sinister Miracle In Sam Raimi-Produced Horror

While Sam Raimi has Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness coming up, his fans may be more excited to know that he’s still deeply involved in the horror genre that made his career. His latest, The Unholy, is a demon possession film he’s producing and it stars The Walking Dead‘s Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Marking the directorial debut of writer Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast, The Huntsman: Winter’s War), The Unholy stars Morgan as a down-on-his-luck journalist investigating a young deaf girl who regained her hearing after an alleged encounter with the Virgin Mary. As he begins looking into the miracles she is performing, he learns that these blessings may actually be something evil.

Joining Morgan in the cast is a talented group that includes Katie Aselton, William Sadler, Diogo Morgado, Cricket Brown and Cary Elwes.

Movies about demonic possession boasting creepy Catholic imagery will never go out of style, and this one looks particularly ominous. Spilotopoulos has quite a career already writing numerous blockbuster films so it’ll be interesting to see how he does working for himself. Having a genre vet like Raimi on board definitely doesn’t hurt in drawing attention to the film.

The Unholy hits theaters on April 2nd.
