"The Greatest Show Unearthed" is the 2006 debut album by alternative rock band Creature Feature.

Due to extensive advertising on MySpace and good reviews in horror magazines such as "Rue Morgue", "Unearthed" was hugely successful; the band sold out of copies within a matter of months. In 2007, Creature Feature was picked up by Sumerian Records, thus getting the album a wide release in major retail stores and a full remixing and remastering. The rerelease arrives in stores October 30, 2007.
