The Unholy, based on Shrine a 1983 novel by James Herbert, is about a dishonoured journalist Gerry Fenn who is investigating the incident of cattle mutilation in a small town named Massachusetts. While his investigation, he meets a deaf and mute teenage girl named Alice who has the power of healing the sick and she also has visions of who she thinks is Virgin Mary. The Unholy is a religious horror with some outstanding jump-scares but the entire story feels a little sketched not giving realistic feels. Though Cricket Brown as Alice has done an amazing part in playing the character, Jeffery as Gerry Fenn has been disappointing in impressing the audience. The cinematographer Craig Wrobleski is also one of the reasons why the film is a bit off because he has shown the entire town as haunted and scary with his off angles and scary-looking churches, woods and buildings. It also has some cliché visuals that feel very repetitive.
The Unholy has uneven storytelling that fails to leave an impact in the minds of the audience.
