Goofs

The Aztec civilization only existed in Mesoamerica, a region which is situated in central Mexico, not in Brazil, yet as the film opens we hear a dialogue wherein Dr Covas exclaims "Aztecs, this far South." This was possibly a deliberate, though inexplicable error by the filmmakers. See more »

Decent entry, if not overtly spectacular
2 November 2007 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

"Unrest" is an overall fun, if pretty flawed film.

**SPOILERS**

Arriving for Anatomy Class, students Alison Blanchard, (Corri English) and her team, Brian Cross, (Scot Davis) and Carlos Aclar, (Joshua Alba) are confronted with a mysterious cadaver. As they continue on with the class, her personal beliefs conflict with the rest of the group, and it starts to disturb her. When she begins to feel that something is wrong with the body, it gets to her even more so and she starts to investigate. When the others get wind of what's going on, they try to find out what is going on, along with Dr. Walter Blackwell, (Derrick O'Connor) the head doctor. Finally able to understand the connection between the cadaver and the strange occurrences around the hospital, they are able to help it leave the hospital.

The Good News: This one wasn't all that bad at times. The film's biggest point is that there's a really engaging mystery created with the cadaver. The fact that it's a complete unknown yet comes in several really burning questions which really should've been answered and doesn't. Those are quite good, but all the supernatural events is where the film shines. From all the weird chanting and buzzing noises to all the different objects around them breaking and smashing for no reason to the innate feeling of dread, this one really has a couple of outstanding suspense scenes. Once knowledge of the ancient curse comes in, this one gets even more creepy, and the film really gets going with the creepy feelings. The ending is also a big part of this, as it gets really creepy, as this segment also manages to throw in some really nice gore scenes as well. There's a leg lopped off with a power saw, another has incredibly brutal scratches across the back that leaves really deep scars, a few really great aftermath shots and much more. These are mixed in with the creepy feelings to create a series of really great sequences. These here are augmented by the really disturbing anatomy class scenes where the bodies are cut into. These are graphic, detailed and really do have a disturbing quality to them. These here are what the film works.

The Bad News: This here doesn't have a whole lot of flaws. The biggest one is an issue brought up repeatedly in the film, which is why the students continually choose to live in the hospital knowing what is going on. There's several scenes that give the film a real sense that they don't have much sense. It's understandable when there's little to no information about the curse, but they're still in the building after knowing what had happened, and that's a really hard one to believe. They have an idea of what the curse can do, as it's been after them for awhile at that point, and finally getting any answer would've made it nearly impossible to stay there. It's brought up several times, making it even more ridiculous that it occurs. The only other one is that the film's reliance on mood could prove to be a missed opportunity for those who prefer a much more straight-forward action tale. By continually using creepy noises, it soon becomes blasé after a point, which could be a point against it. That could even be a pace-killing mark, as it could be seen as a series of such scenes and make it feel less interesting. These, though, are all it has against the film.

The Final Verdict: Without a whole lot of really big flaws but still manages to get in a few other points for it. This is really only for those who are interested in the other films or think it sounds interesting, while those who not that interested in it should give it a shot without looking for too much.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Full Nudity
