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.

"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.

Unearthed (Matthew Leutwyler, 2007)

There was a time when I would have said that the great Russell Means lent a little class to every movie in which he appears. That time, unfortunately, has now passed forever with Unearthed, the latest outing for Dead and Breakfast director Matthew Leutwyler. Now, this is not Russell Means' fault by any stretch of the imagination, but it's depressing to see that he's no longer batting a thousand.

Plot: Annie Flynn (Emanuelle Vaugier), an alcoholic sheriff in a small southwestern town, is going to be forced out in a week after the town holds a no-confidence election. She's managed to hang onto her job for a year after the incident that caused the town to lose faith in her (and her to lose faith in herself), but everyone's lost patience. So, needless to say, something earth-shattering has to happen in that last week to give herback her confidence and let the town see her as a savior. Of course, that is, if anyone's left in the town by the time the mysterious, seemingly supernatural killer (this isn't a spoiler, we see what's happening in the opening scene; the only suspense there is what it is) is through eating its way through them.

As is usually the case with films picked up by the guys who run the After Dark Horrorfest, this wasn't actually a movie that was too scary for theaters; it's a movie that was so mediocre, even by the standards of the crap Hollywood's been churning out and calling "horror" for the past decade or so, that no studio would pick it up for distribution. Unearthed stands apart from the usual Horrorfest fare in that there's actually some starpower to be found here; former model Vaugier has recently been taking a turn on TV's CSI:NY, while male lead Luke Goss should be familiar from Blade II.
