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...

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...

1.0 out of 5 stars What the unholy crap did I just watch? March 2, 2010
Format:DVD
All I can manage to say about this movie is that I had a ridiculously painful headache after watching it and my mother (who purchased it) made the store take it back even though they didn't refund her money. It is THAT bad. What the hell is going on in this movie? Can somebody tell me and not fall over foaming at the mouth because their brain imploded on itself trying to comprehend it? The only reason it gets one star is because there is no zero or negative star rating. Without a doubt the WORST movie I've ever seen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awe-inspiring concept. Crap execution. April 27, 2012
Format:DVD
<strong>Unholy</strong> (Daryl Goldberg, 2007)

I wanted to like this movie a great deal more than I did; the concept is amazing, and the acting is, in general, up to that standard. Unfortunately, it takes a few wrong turns in the script, and the farther on we go, the more lost we become, until there is a point towards the end of the movie where you know you're never going to find your way back to that luminous path of potential on which you started out.

Plot: Martha (Adrienne Barbeau) is a distraught mother. She has just (in the movie's opening sequence) unsuccessfully attempted to talk her daughter, Hope (<em>Thralls</em>' Siri Baruc), out of suicide. Her other child, Lucas (<em>Pinata: Survival Island</em>'s Nicholas Brendon), comes home to help her cope, and the two of them start looking for answers. The more they dig, the weirder things get.

Saying <em>what</em> they start finding, even close to the beginning, would be plunging deep into spoiler territory, so I'll just say that while it's nothing you haven't seen before, scriptwriter Sam Freeman takes a number of disparate things you've seen and attempts to put them together in such a way as to be, if not wholly original, at least well on the way. And from what we can see of the big picture by the time we get to the end, he was really on to something. Too bad he doesn't seem to have spent a great deal of time thinking about internal consistency in his conceit, which leads to some moments where the viewer is shaking his head and wondering why no one thought to question this or that angle. Unfortunately, if you're working in this sort of speculative vein, the sort of internal consistency we don't get is exactly what the script needs to carry everything off. Which turns this from a movie advertising endless possibilities into something of a slog.

Worth checking out for the concept, but don't expect to enjoy it much. **

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film!
It takes its time and you must have the patience to allow the mystery unfold. It will take you further than you expect.
