A few months ago, The Unholy Testament was released in theaters. Based on the graphic novel written by Tom Bissell, the film depicts religious zealots as a fringe group that seeks out the devil in every shape and form. During a series of attacks on Christian churches throughout England, The Unholy Testament follows the vigilant efforts of these "devil spawn" to attack the worshipers. Terrorists planning these attacks operate in underground tunnels, which are guarded by a pack of heavily-armored executioners. The movie is explicit for those who may not be comfortable viewing movies with blood and gore.
When a disfigured executioner tries to poison the prime minister of England, The Unholy Testament follows his personal vendetta against the government and its perceived failures of protecting England. When the prime minister's daughter falls ill, she is visited by a vampire who claims to be her long-lost half-sister. While doing so, she is told of a similar situation that occurred centuries ago during a church feast. The Unholy Testament shows the daughter seeking help from the clergyman, which only increases his wrath.
If you enjoy viewing films with blood and gore, then The Unholy Testament is something that you should check out. It is available for streaming on several websites, but if you really want to see this movie in its original form you will need to go to the theater and see it in the comfort of your own home. The movie is rated R (by Disney). So there should be no problems with running into any violence or adult content during your showing of this film.
If you haven't read the book, then you might want to start reading it before watching The Unholy Testament. While it is based on real events, it does have some interesting twists and turns, that keep the story going. There are also quite a few graphic scenes, but they are well tolerable for those with strong stomachs. This is also a movie you will likely want to share with friends and family members because of it's graphic and somewhat disturbing content.
During the course of the movie, we learn more about the personality of the main character, as well as some of the back story surrounding him and his family. We are also introduced to some other characters that play a key role throughout the movie, and their relationships with the main characters. Overall, this movie is very suspenseful, and even though there are some graphic depictions, it doesn't ever appear to be gratuitous. The movie has a great pace and is very entertaining.
One of the best things about The Unholy Testament is that it's easy to follow from start to finish. The movie flows from one scene to another without you having to struggle to keep up. The acting is excellent throughout the movie, and some of the scenes even manage to scare a few people.
