The Church (1989)

Director: Michele Soavi
Starring: Hugh Quarshie, Tomas Arana, Feodor Chaliapin Jr.

A priest must find a way to thwart the resurrected evil lurking underneath a Gothic cathedral.

As religious horror films go, this one isn't too shabby. It's not amazing, but it's some striking visuals and is definitely a cut above the average. Star Wars fans will note Captain Panaka (Hugh Quarshie) is Father Gus (even if said fans try to pretend Episode I never happened) and we also have a young Asia Argento as Lotte. If you like this kind of movie, you'll want to give it a watch. Otherwise, it doesn't do anything that will bring in people not normally inclined for this sort of thing.
