Synopsis: Three years ago, a father, mother, and son murdered each other at home—a bloody tragedy that would later be known as the Moriarty Massacre. Only the youngest son, Eamon, survived that horrific night.
Now the Rossellis, the family currently living in the home, are experiencing strange phenomena. The phone rings randomly, a bloodlike stain continually reappears in the dining room, and their son, Billy, is talking to someone. Someone nobody can see and only Billy can hear.
The Rossellis hire Tim and Eddie McCloskey, local ghost hunters, to investigate. As the case quickly develops, their investigation takes dark turns as they race against time to find a missing boy. And as Tim and Eddie discover some terrifying similarities between the Moriartys and the Rossellis, they realize another massacre might be around the corner, and only they can stop it.
Review: THE UNEARTHED is reminiscent of ‘The Amityville Horror’ as the Moriarty family is horribly murdered in their home with a lone survivor, one of the sons, Eamon. Now a new family is living in the Moriarty house and is experiencing strange and scary phenomena. There are pools of blood, strange phone calls, and a young boy who is talking to someone who isn’t seen by anyone else. The Rossellis hire the ghost-hunting McCloskey brothers to investigate the house. During their investigation, the McCloskey’s determine there are some eerie similarities between the Moriarty and Rosselli families and realize they may have another massacre on their hands. THE UNEARTHED is a classic horror story with a nice twist. I didn’t care for many of the characters, but I did like Eddie McCloskey the best. I wasn’t a fan of Eddie’s brother, Tim, who could have helped his brother instead of letting his negativity knock Eddie down. THE UNEARTHED is a chilling tale of murder, mayhem, and mystery.
