Say Your Prayers as Obscure Horror Masterpiece ‘The Unholy’ Hits Blu-Ray

GameStop, Inc.

The UnholyGrowing up in the 1980s the corner video store was a magical place full of weird and wonderous things. While Blockbuster had all of the latest hits, the dank and dusty smaller stores had all manner of unique and obscure titles. One just had to spend time perusing the shelves until some bizarre box art grabbed you by the eyes and refused to let go. There were a few studio mainstays of those halcyon “be kind, rewind” days, and Vestron was one of the most familiar to fans of gore and boobs. Vestron has been teaming up with Lionsgate, another horror icon, to bring many of these lost films back from the dead in re-mastered limited edition Blu-ray sets, including the forgotten favorite The Unholy.

The Unholy is the epitomy of over the top 80s horror, full of gore, nudity, and amazing special effects, at least for the time. The Catholic priest versus demonic evil isn’t anything new, but this effects laden take on it keeps things fresh, while boasting a cast including Ned Beatty and Hal Holbrook.

The Unholy

After two priests are murdered under mysterious circumstances at St. Agnes church, newly appointed pastor Michael (Ben Cross) must battle an ancient evil to save his parrish, and the world. Is his soul pure enough, or will he be the next to die?

The film looks fantastic in this restored and re-mastered collectors edition, and includes an impressive array of bonus features that will impress and delight film fans and horror junkies alike. Featuring the obligatory audio commentary track with the film’s director, Camilo Vila, trailers, TV spots, amd still gallery would be enough for most, but Vestron didn’t stop there.

To make this release truly special they have included the original, unused ending with optional commentary from producer Mathew Hayden, isolated score selections, audio interviews with composer Roger Bellon and production designer/co-writer Fernando Fonseca, and three wonderful behind the scenes featurettes giving a glimpse into the madness responsible for this horror classic.

The Unholy

A must have for fans of 80s horror, The Unholy is a time machine back to the days of musty video stores and late nights being scared out of your wits with your friends. Vestron Video has given this obscure horror masterpiece its proper due, and you haven’t got a prayer.

The Unholy comes out exclusively on limited edition Blu-ray on June 27th.
