Reviews:

” …while Unearthed: The Curse of Nephthys isn’t perfect, it’s still a step or two in the right direction in terms of filming a product that makes viewers say “wow.” I will suggest putting extra time into keeping the audio and video quality at consistent levels. Both aspects bounced around during the film, from good to bad, which subtracts from the overall appeal.” Horror Society

“The narrative is very light on dialogue, preferring to let the visuals tell most of the story. Don’t expect a lot of exposition in this one. You’ll have to watch closely and sometimes infer what is happening. This helped to keep things a little different than what you’d normally expect.” Indie Horror Online
