I read a little about this movie before seeing it and from most of what I read it seemed pretty positive. It's an underrated supernatural film in my opinion. The story is basically about these priests who are murdered by a demon who makes them sin then kills them. Later in the movie it's revealed that a single priest would be chosen to battle the demon known as the Unholy.

The film has some good creepy moments and maybe a scare or two, but it does fall apart a bit towards the end compared to the pace of the rest of the movie. It seemed out of place, like it was a bit rushed and I think it would have been better if we didn't see the demon the way we did. They ended up showing the whole demon and it's somewhat silly looking.

Other than that the film has good acting, directing, a decent plot and special effects. You may even learn some interesting stuff about religion. Also has an average amount of blood and gore and even a little T&A. The story is good, but predictable, especially at the end. I would have given the movie a lower-rating, but I really felt that it was a good movie, despite the ending.

This is an underrated supernatural film. Check this if you're looking for something a little different than the regular horror flick.
