The Church 18 rating

A librarian discovers an ancient evil lurking underneath a cathedral, in this spectacular gothic horror co-written and produced by Dario Argento.

Horror 1989 102 mins

Director: Michele Soavi



A librarian (Tomas Arana) and a student (Barbara Cupisti) discover an ancient evil lurking underneath the cathedral in which they're working unwittingly unleashing overwhelming demonic forces from their subterranean portal. Michele Soavi's sophormore film (following StageFright) is co-written and produced by his mentor Dario Argento and, with its sweeping visuals and Keith Emerson/Goblin score, The Church will certainly satisfy fans of the maestro, though Soavi's extravagant sense of Gothic grandeur is all his own.
