We've always been big fans of Adrienne's Barbeau's here at eatmybrains.com. The John Carpenter regular (see Escape From New York, The Fog) has always been great in every film she's appeared in, and has even made low-budget hokiness like the Swamp Thing bearable with her uplifting presence.
Now she's back with a new role in the upcoming 'based on true story' conspiracy horror Unholy and aintitcool have just run a glowing review of the film in it's early post-production stages;
"The film starts off with a bang (literally) in an opening sequence comprised of Barbeau attempting to convince her daughter not to blow her brains out. It was an opening sequence like I've never seen before. Very original, different, and tense. From there on, I knew this wasn't going to be your ordinary scary flick."
Sounds good already, eh? The review then goes on to set up the tone of te film, (Why did Barbeau's daughter kill herself? What did she mean by her last words, "Beware of the Experiment"?) and mentions several SFX shots that are not quite complete, before finishing with;
"I have to say, I was going in expecting this would be a B Horror Film, but I was shocked that this movie was the original, smart, and innovative. With this movie being based on an actual military document, I will go out on the limb and say these guys have the next Blair Witch on their hands."
Unholy stars Nicholas Brendan( Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Adrienne Barbeau. The film deals with a grieving Mother who uncovers a conspiracy dealing with Nazi Witchcraft smuggled into small town PA following WWII.
