Storyline

In the desert area of Hat Creek, cows are found partially devoured and the farmers believe that a wolf is attacking the cattle. The alcoholic Sheriff Annie Flynn is called by the local farmer Rob Horn to witness the remains of an animal to request reimbursement from the government and for an accident with a tank truck that is blocking the road. However, Annie sooner discovers that an ancient alien creature sent to annihilate life on Earth hundreds of years ago was released by the Indian Kale during an archaeological excavation in the desert. The Indian Caya and a group of travelers stranded in the spot without gas together with Annie and Kale try to find a means to destroy the alien and save mankind.

Limited Theatrical? This was destined for Sci-Fi channel!
20 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I heard about Unearthed when it had only just really begun production, and thought it sounded quite good. I was mainly attracted to it because it's a Horror Movie and Emmanuelle Vaugier is the lead. It instantly sounded like a B-Movie, and looked like one, so I didn't go in expecting for the movie to be amazing - just at least good. After waiting for a release date, it was finally released at the Horrorfest. I just managed to see the movie and I am very disappointed with it. It's, in short, crap.

Plot line is somewhat simple, but I just didn't care as it got so boring. A sinister crash on a highway causes cattle to begin dying and such, and a Sheriff (Vaugier) and several others find themselves being attacked by some sort of creature and find themselves fighting for survival. Sounds entertaining, but trust me it isn't. I couldn't wait for this film to finish, as it felt like it was just going on and on. They delve into the plot further in the movie as it progresses, but I honestly just past caring.

The acting is good, and one of the only good aspects of the film. Vaugier is great as always, and Beau Garrett and Tonantzin Carmelo are good as well. The others are good, but those three were the only ones I was interested in as they gave the strongest performances. Luke Goss did seem kind of pointless though, and added nothing to the film. It's a shame that this movie has a range of great actors, yet they are given cardboard characters to work with. None of the characters are really remotely interesting, and Vaugier has a really pointless back-story which adds nothing to her character.

The Horror itself isn't done well. The death scenes are messy and not entertaining. Most of the characters aren't interesting, as said before, so you can't wait for them to get killed. They're not even given memorable death scenes. Most of the death scenes consist of the creature popping up and just attacking and then it's done. They could have at least given us some entertaining chase scenes and ranged their deaths and not just given us little, boring attacks. The creature is OK, but nothing special at all.

For some reason I had a problem with the dialogue in the movie also. When characters interact, it does not seem natural and just feels badly written in parts. The dialogue is somewhat horrible at times. Characters will be talking to each other, and then a long pause will come, and they will go onto another topic, end the conversation, cut to another scene or they'll talk to someone else or talk about something else. I gave the movie the benefit of the doubt, but then I just realized it was lazy writing and crappy character development.

Unearthed unfortunately is a big mess of a movie. I actually cannot believe this got into theaters, as this is a DVD or TV movie premiere at best. Think Sci-Fi channel actually, as this feels like one of the Sci-Fi channel worthy movies - not theater worthy. I really wanted to love this for a B-Movie, but the movie is just a pile of boring crap. Uninteresting characters, bad dialogue, lazy writing, lame death scenes and just plain old boring...Unearthed is one to miss! The only positive things I can say about this are the cast, the choice of survivors and perhaps a "little" bit of entertainment in there somewhere. You'll be lucky to find that entertainment though.

3/10
