Car will lock but not unlock

So I am having a problem with my power locks. My car will lock and unlock fine with the key fob, but when I use the key the car will not unlock, it will only lock. Also whenever the lock engages it makes a high pitch moaning noise. Another thing is that my car doesn't indicate with a flash of the lights or honk of the horn that the car is locked. I'm awfully confused and would appreciate any input on the situation. Is my locking mechanism broken?

Edit: Also when I am inside the car I cannot unlock the car by hand, the lever by the handle is rock hard and won't budge.
