While he's been busy playing Negan on AMC's The Walking Dead the past five years, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has still been playing plenty of roles on the big screen, including his role as a journalist in the religious horror movie The Unholy, which is featured in a new trailer ahead of its April 2nd theatrical release from Sony Pictures.

Written and directed by Evan Spiliotopoulos, produced by Sam Raimi, and based on James Herbert's novel Shrine, The Unholy stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Katie Aselton, William Sadler, Cricket Brown, Diogo Morgado, and Cary Elwes.

"The Unholy follows Alice, a young hearing-impaired girl who, after a supposed visitation from the Virgin Mary, is inexplicably able to hear, speak and heal the sick. As word spreads and people from near and far flock to witness her miracles, a disgraced journalist (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) hoping to revive his career visits the small New England town to investigate. When terrifying events begin to happen all around, he starts to question if these phenomena are the works of the Virgin Mary or something much more sinister. The Unholy is produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Evan Spiliotopoulos, written for the screen and directed by Evan Spiliotopoulos, and is based upon James Herbert’s best-selling book Shrine."
