A Fracking Tale of Terror with Unearth: A Preview

Tagline: "A Fracking Horror Story."

Unearth is an ecological survival horror story. Set to show at this year's virtual Fantasia Film Festival, Unearth looks at the dangers of fracking and a looming environmental crisis. This title was developed by John C. Lyons (Schism) and Dorota Swies. And, the cast consists of horror favourite Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), along with: Brooke Sorenson ("Modern Family"), P.J. Marshall and Rachel McKeon. This title appears at Fantasia in late August, with a preview available here.

The movie poster for Unearth shows some of the environmental damage as an icon of Mother Earth suffers above. This graphic hosts skull and bones as trees wither. Very smokey, characters Kathryn (Barbeau) and Christina (Allison McAtee) hover above. All of the film's promotional materials have been intriguing thus far.

Unearth will have two appearances at this year's festival. First, the film will show on August 25th, followed by another showing on August 30th. Tickets will be available for Canadians only as the festival hosts its titles exclusively online.

Showing Dates: August 25th & 30th (Fantasia Film Fest', Canada).

Directors: John C. Lyons, Dorota Swies.

Writers: Kelsey Goldberg, John C. Lyons.

Cast: Adrienne Barbeau, Marc Blucas, P.J. Marshall, Allison McAtee, Rachel McKeon, Brooke Sorenson, Monica Wyche.

*the film was developed from a Kickstarter campaign drive.
