Goofs

Notably in the opening dissection scene, when Alison hurls and then faints. Upon reviving her, Dr. Blackwell addresses Alison as *Dr. Blanchard*. Additionally, in several other scenes, various other characters address her (and other students) with the same professional title of *Doctor*. But being *only* medical students, (and not having even graduated nor passed any medical boards) she/they are NOT yet MD's. It is improper to call a medical student a *Doctor*. The proper title for a medical student is *Student Doctor*. See more »

Quotes

Brian Cross: [to Alison, as they are about to search for the body again] If you still insist on being an atheist, this is the moment to reconsider.

Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things...unless you're using it as a marketing angle!
6 June 2007 | by ThrownMuseSee all my reviews

This is the "8 Films" movie that claims to be the first movie to use a REAL human corpse! Spooky! It's debatable whether that is true, and it's never obvious which one in the movie is a real corpse, so I'm not sure they should have went to the trouble. The "moral" of the story is "don't mess with dead bodies," so this is a rather ironic marketing angle to take. Anywho, "Unrest" takes place in a hospital, where young medical student Alison and her Abercrombie model cohorts are cuttin' up cadavers. Alison lives in the hospital until her financial aid kicks through, and they apparently spend all the time they aren't sleeping (or changing into new scrubs) carving up the same old cadaver. It must be a very resilient corpse! Most of the movie is filmed in the hospital or the confines of Alison's closet-like room. This may just be due to budget restraints, but I thought it created a claustrophobic atmosphere. Considering the lead never leaves the hospital floor and spends half her time with a chopped up corpse and male models pretending to be med students, she has plenty of time to let her mind wander. When random things start happening and she gets a funny feeling in her tummy, she decides that the corpse is trying to tell her something. What, she doesn't know. The evil corpse's alleged antics are amusing, and lead to some nasty killings and bizarre sequences. One of these features our heroes swimming around in a tub of formaldehyde, unaffected by the chemical, even though they're swallowing it and getting it in their eyes. "Unrest" is yet another silly poorly-written movie in the 8 FILMS TO DIE FOR series, but it has its fair share of scares, and is entertaining despite its flaws.
