Review: The Unholy
So there's this deaf-mute girl named Alice (Cricket Brown). After an apparent visitation by the Virgin Mary Alice is beginning to see hear and yes say things. A jaded journo passing through town Gerry (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) thinks he may have stumbled upon the biggest story of the year. But as we know from many a religious-themed horror movie miracles are never what they seem to be.
The semi-sinister reason for Alice's unprecedented transformation generates just enough spooky scares and kooky shocks to earn this middling thriller a pass mark.
Mercifully the pacing here is a little more lively than usual and the sense that all is not being taken too seriously is much appreciated also.
