Falling on hard times, George Lomack (Marc Blucas) is desperate to save his family.

Not heeding the warnings of his sagacious neighbor (Adrienne Barbeau), it soon becomes abundantly clear that Lomack has made a deal with the devil. A creeping terror has been released from the depths of his fertile land while George's family become shadows of their former selves. Now the two neighbours fight for survival against a poison that is infecting their soil.

Like the drilling operation, this was a script in sore need of a clean-up operation.

Eventually Unearth turns into a gnarly soap opera, and moments of shocking violence are met with an eye-roll instead of the shock that comes from winding up an audience.

This is a deep, dark excavation of festering resentment and opportunism gone wrong. It can be too grounded for its own good, but, by the time its earth-rending finale comes about, the message is clear and true.

...uncovers a familiar story of greed and decay...

Though Unearth starts off as a thoughtful and harrowing exploration of the consequences of fracking, the feature loses steam in an apogee that takes a wild detour from its subdued roots.

Ecological horror set amongst struggling farming families. A slow burn domestic drama becomes horror both bodily and Earthy. Great cast, great production, though some may consider the structure uneven.
