The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan must face his fears again in Sam Raimi’s horror film Unholy. The film hits theaters next month on Good Friday and is produced by Raimi, Rob Tapert and Evan Spiliotopoulos, with Andra Ajemian and Romel Adam as executive producers. Spiliotopoulos wrote and directed this film. You can watch the official trailer of the film below.
According to the official script, the film follows the story of Alice the Godless, a hearing-impaired girl who can inexplicably hear, speak and heal the sick after an alleged visit to the Virgin Mary. As the story spreads and people flock from far and wide to witness their miracles, a disgraced journalist (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) travels to a small New England town hoping to revive his career to investigate. As strange events unfold around him, he begins to wonder if these apparitions are the work of the Virgin Mary or something far more sinister.
In addition to Morgan, Katie Aselton (Legion), William Sadler (Bill and Ted Face the Music), Cricket Brown (Dukeland), Diogo Morgado (MacGyver) and Cary Elvis (Saw, The Princess Bride) star in Unholy. The story is based on the book Temple by James Herbert.
Fans of The Walking Dead know Morgan mostly for his recurring role as Negan in the series, which he first played at the end of season 6. His real-life wife, Hilarie Burton Morgan, will play Negan’s wife Lucille in an upcoming episode of the Here’s Negan prequel, revealing the seedy character’s backstory. The episode airs a few days after the premiere of Unholy, and AMC airs Here’s Negan on Sunday the 4th. Release date in April.
Morgan is also known for his role as John Winchester, the father of the Winchester brothers played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, in the science fiction series Supernatural. His other roles include Danny Duquette in Grey’s Anatomy, The Comedian in Watchmen, and Jason Croce in The Good Wife. The actor has also landed a role in Joseph Chambers’ upcoming film Integrity.
Director Evan Spiliotopoulos also wrote the screenplay for Joe Spinopoulos’ next film, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. He also worked on the scripts for Charlie’s Angels, Beauty and the Beast, and Hunter: Winter’s War and Hercules.
Temple, the book on which Unholy is based, was first published in 1983. He explores the themes of religious ecstasy, mass hysteria, demonic possession, faith healing and Catholicism. Morgan’s character, as well as the other characters in the film, also appeared in the original story. The film adaptation has been worked on for years, and in 2018 Screen Gems and Sam Raimi joined forces on the project. Although the author-historian, James Herbert, died in 2013, the writer was once praised by Stephen King. A legendary horror author once said of Herbert’s books that they were bestsellers because so many readers (including myself) were too afraid to put them down.
The wicked come on Good Friday, 2. April 2021, in theaters. The film was rated PG-13 for its violent, terror-related content and strong language. The official trailer comes from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
