The fest will host Unearthed‘s world premiere on April 27th with three more screenings to follow (check the site for details). These screenings will mark the end of a very long journey for Leutwyler who has been at work on the film since 2005, the same year his jump into horror, the zombie comedy Dead & Breakfast, made its splash on DVD via Anchor Bay Entertainment.
Leading lady Emmanuelle Vaugier (Saw II) plays a sheriff who’s small town in New Mexico is upturned by the presence of a being buried long ago. Similar to films like Tremors and Feast (although I see a little bit of The Being in here, too), Unearthed pushes an ensemble cast – Luke Goss (Blade II), Beau Garrett (Turistas), Miranda Bailey (Dead & Breakfast), Russell Means (Pathfinder) – into survival mode to fend off the otherworldly creature. Executive producer TyRuben Ellingson (Hellboy) designed said beast and its many accoutrements.
