1.0 out of 5 stars An Unholy Mess October 13, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie has very little plot or coherence. It's a stew containing uncooked lumps of time-traveling entities, apparitions in basements, and figments inducing people to commit suicide.

Actually, the director's commentary on this DVD is better than the movie itself. In addition to providing some behind-the-scenes insights into how a bunch of buddies get together to make an Indie film like this, he talks about how he went about casting "Unholy." He says he was sure from the start that he wanted Adrienne Barbeau in the film because he'd remembered her as the all-night DJ in "The Fog," where she'd won him over with her "sexiest voice ever."

Barbeau's presence in "Unholy" is in fact the film's only redeeming virtue. It's good to see her on screen again, but it's unfortunate it had to be in a mishmash like this. So whether you are looking for sex appeal, or for a movie with at least some suspense and semblance of plot - it would in fact be better to go back to the source and check out "The Fog." Watching this movie will just leave you in one.

3.0 out of 5 stars OVERLY BIZARRE...PICK A GENRE... November 9, 2007
Format:DVD
Unholy is not an easy movie to classify...part horror, part sci-fi, part psychological thriller, it isn't great in any one area but it is an interesting `small' movie. I use the word small because the two stars, Barbeau and Brendon, ad onscreen throughout almost the entire film. This isn't a scary movie, per se, but it is creepy. It's one of those films that makes you wonder just what the heck is going on throughout most of the movie but a twist at the end brings everything home.

Barbeau is Martha who returns home with flowers for her teenage daughter, Hope. But Hope has locked herself in the outdoor storm cellar with a gun to her head, babbling incoherently about some experiment...just before she pulls the trigger. Brendon plays older brother Lucas in a role not unlike `Xander in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He's slightly timid and tries to make up for it with humor. Martha wants to know why her daughter would take her own life and what this experiment is that she referred to before she took her own life. They find a hidden room in the basement with a painting of a crazed looking man wearing Nazi symbols. Martha falls asleep several times only to find herself in this room, strapped into a chair, and listening to an old record phonograph playing some crazed, cult-like chanting.

This is a film where virtually every character they encounter is some kind of nut or seems to know something about what's going on...from the guy who runs the flower shop to Martha's old next door neighbor, Charlie. Martha and Nicholas discover that the man in the painting was a Nazi scientist working on an experiment with the U.s. Government on what they called the Unholy Trinity: Time Travel, Mind Control, and invisibility. The more they discover, the more strange things become...

4.0 out of 5 stars Reminded me of Donnie Darko... October 25, 2010
Format:DVD
...except that THIS movie ultimately made sense.

This movie does start off as very disjointed and bizarre, and it seems like most of the reviewers here never got past that. Once the investigation starts, though, the pieces begin to come together and make sense, in exactly the way that Donnie Darko - The Director's Cut (Two-Disc Special Edition) should have and never really did. The key difference is that Unholy is completely unconcerned with explaining how the weird stuff works (it's Nazi magic; deal with it and move on), while Darko falls apart unless you can somehow magically understand all of the weird rules that govern its peculiar version of time travel and alternate reality...and even then, you might want to hit Wikipedia and see if you got it right. Darko hangs a semblance of a plot on a poorly-explained idea; Unholy is a well-crafted mystery that doesn't fully make sense until you put the final pieces into place. (In other words, it's a well-crafted mystery.)

Unholy gives you all the clues you need to understand it, but unless you were watching closely or jump right back in for a rewatch, you'll miss some. Yes, there are still a couple of holes that could have been (more explicitly) filled in, but they're side issues and you should be able to figure them out with a little thought. Just about every Weird Random Thing gets explained, either explicitly or by implication.

It also helps tremendously if you listen to the three "radio broadcasts" that are played over the end credits; those are the final pieces of the puzzle, and playing them with the credits may have been a miscalculation, as many people will miss them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Borderline Genius September 10, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen some reviews calling this movie genius, and some calling it a mess...I definitely agree with the first. This movie is brilliant. Especially for direct to video standards. That being said, it is NOT for everyone. It is not a slasher. It is not a straightforward horror. It's DRAMA/THRILLER. If you want a straight forward horror movie, go see any of the countless DTV options. If you want a movie that makes you think, and one of the few movies I've seen where you can watch the entire thing TWICE and it be like seeing two different movies...watch UNHOLY. It's quickly becoming of of my faves...

3.0 out of 5 stars WHY?
I thought this movie would have been like "The Haunting In Connecticut", was I ever off the mark though... One word describes my opinion of this movie: WHY?

It takes its time and you must have the patience to allow the mystery unfold. It will take you further than you expect.

If only the movie itself were half as good as the marketing campaign created for it, Unholy could have been a pretty good film. Read more
