Overview

A first-year medical student discovers that death may not be as final as she once believed when the spirit of the cadaver assigned to her in Gross Anatomy class attempts to resolve some unfinished business in the mortal realm. When the sheet is drawn back and Alison's Corri English cadaver is revealed, the nervous student suddenly senses a powerful energy and collapses to the floor, unconscious. Upon relaying her strange experience to her skeptical instructor, Dr. Blackwell Derrick O'Connor, Alison finds her strange malaise immediately written off as the "first year jitters." When Alison's friend is discovered dead in a basement corridor and the rising body count begins to appear strangely connected with her investigation into the cadaver's fate, the frightened medical student does her best to put the mystery, and the murderous spirit, to rest.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
No one's going to credit Jason Todd Ipson with revolutionizing the horror genre through this chiller about cadavers getting into the heads of med-school students. But anyone who knows what limited resources the writer/director had to produce his first feature should be impressed with its scare factor. Unrest made the rounds of horror festivals in the fall of 2006, and viewers were treated to a handful of genuinely effective moments taking place within a hauntingly rendered hospital setting. Full of blinking halogen bulbs and ominous quiet, this hospital is even more spooky as a dormitory for financial-aid-challenged first-year Alison Blanchard Corri English, whose only other roommates are the corpses, at least one of whom died under possibly occultish circumstances in South America. It's not that these ingredients aren't somewhat standard; they are, right down to the buxom English getting one of her greatest frights while showering. But Ipson gets self-assured performances from his mostly neophyte cast, with an injection of veteran know-how from Derrick O'Connor as a doubting instructor, and his script is witty and self-aware. Moreover, Unrest reminds viewers of the inherently perverse nature of this practice of operating on dead bodies, long since institutionalized and taken for granted in medical training. Namely, if these vessels of rotting flesh do still possess souls, they're not likely to be pleased by this type of poking and prodding.

    Different...

    One of the things that I find most enjoyable about each of the AFTER DARK HORRORFEST films is that they are all so different from one another. UNREST was a particularly different film. It's methods are purely unconventional. I could go into further detail, but I'd ruin the film. The opening scene is creepy as all get out...

    Another good one from the 'After Dark Horrorfest' group. Great story. Good balance of what is shown and what is left to the imagination. Oh and Corri English sure makes scrubs look good.
