"Unearthed," the second of the 8 Films 2 Die 4 from Horrorfest 2007 I am checking out on DVD, is a dormant monster brought to live to kill (almost) everybody in the movie type of movie. The setting is a desolate New Mexico town, so isolated that an oil tanker can turn over and block what is apparently the only road out of town. Equally important to the plot, the oil tanker was coming to deliver gasoline to the place run by Grandpa (Russell Means), which means the bad news for the people who show up in the first part of the movie is that there is no gasoline for them to get out of town. The good news is that all of the women in this small town in New Mexico are big time babes. But then there is the really bad news that a monster has been, well, unearthed.

Our heroine is Sheriff Annie Flynn (Emmanuelle Vaugier of "Saw II), who has an incident in her past that everybody is always making veiled references to; in fact, when Grandpa does not bring up the incident, Annie does herself, before going back to drinking to forget what everybody keeps alluding to. It gets to the point where you expect the strangers who show up to be fodder for the creature to all know about this incident as well. By the time the deep dark secret (that everybody knows about) is revealed, I was totally apathetic. Caya (Beau Garrett of "Turistas"), Ally (Whitney Able), and Nodine (Tonantzin Carmelo), are other babes on the menu, whith Nodine being the important one since she is not only Grandpa's granddaughter, but also a botanist.

2.0 out of 5 stars BORING AND POORLY ACTED June 23, 2008
Format:DVD
After watching three of this year's After Dark Horrorfest films it's very apparent that this year's batch is a few cuts below last year's and Unearthed does nothing to raise the grade. An archaeological dig in a remote New Mexico town releases a creature that's been trapped for 900 years and it soon begins preying on the town's residents and the only road out of town has been blocked by a fuel tanker accident. Hmm, small desert town, residents trapped, a creature feasting on them...yeah, seen it before. It was called Tremors and it was vastly superior.

The town's regular residents include alcoholic sheriff Annie Flynn (Vaugier), Rancher Rob Horn (Gainey) Scientist Nodin and her grandfather (Means). A few passing motorists also find themselves trapped in the little town, all there to buy gas from the service station run by Grandpa. As Nodin tries to analyze the creature's alien DNA and find a means to kill it, Sheriff Flynn attempts to keep the rest of the survivors alive and one step ahead of the beast. I'd love to tell you what the creature looks like but that's somewhat difficult. We get only fleeting glimpses of the thing as it dashes by the camera. On top of that, much of the film takes place at night with those green glow sticks as the only source of illumination. It sort of looks like the Xenophobes from "Aliens" but done in poor CGI. Director Leutwyler borrows liberally from numerous other films including Descent, Relic, and Reeker. In fact you'd be hard pressed to find one original idea in the entire film.

Nodin eventually figures out some sort of voodoo scientific solution about the characters DNA and making a poison from uranium but by that time, I was nodding off and only wanted the film to come to a merciful end.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Alien" meets "Feast" March 23, 2008
Format:DVD
Having liked both the above mentioned titles, I don't see how you could not like this little film. Granted, the budget wasn't as big as "Alien" so the CGI beastie looks a bit fake from time to time. But, the kills were great and there was just enough blood to keep the kid in me saying "Cool!". This works great as a DVD horror title. Have an open mind and just enjoy the flick. But can someone explain to me why Luke Goss has a facial tattoo?

3.0 out of 5 stars mythical beast returns to rack up body count April 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Yep this is one of those movies where an ancient evil is unearthed to wipe out everyone it comes across. Charlie Murphy and Russell Means were both good in this. Some of the moments of action were really good. The tragic backstory of the sheriff sort of petered out though. And everything was really dark and hard to see. Overall, despite all these complaints the movie was not horrible, but not super great either.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak Retread of Alien/Predator *SPOILERS* June 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Many have mentioned Aliens, but this has marks of Predator as well. A creature, though we are given little backstory, has been awakened from a centuries (though I think the number 6000 was bandied about) old slumber and is hungry. We learn that the creature is an alien that was thought to be a God...ok, why?

A young lady learns how the creature was put in a sort of suspended animation..ok, how? She and the local 'misunderstood guy' figure out how to return it to that state...ok, how did they arrive at this conclusion? There were just way to many holes for this movie. If you want to make a simple creature feature that focuses on the gore, leave out the backstory and do that, this movie tried to be a bit more and failed.

The town sheriff, played with aplomb by Emmanuelle Vaugier, struggles to answer the very same questions we as the viewers have. Usually, Vaugier is a capable actress, not afraid to get her hands dirty and not simply rely on her beauty, and she tries here, but she is given little to do. The rest of the players are forgettable.

IF you are looking at Horrorfest movies try The Deaths of Ian Stone, a much better film.
