Unrest has the distinction of being Ďthe first horror film to feature real dead bodiesí and thatís about all it has to offer.

When student doctor Alison Blanchard and the members of her group are given a cadaver to work on for gross anatomy class, they discover that anyone who has touched the body has died in mysterious circumstances. With staff and students dropping like flies, Alison and the guys in her group try to find out the identity of their Jane Doe to put an end to the deaths and her body and soul to rest.

The film opens well and genuinely does have a relatively new idea at its core, however itís the execution that ruins a great premise. The cast is good but they donít have much to do, especially Joshua Albaís Carlos who disappears for half of the movie before reappearing and explaining his absence in one line before he is swiftly bumped off. Thankfully he doesnít tell us that itís because they couldnít afford him for the entire shoot (the guy doesnít even die on screen), but his excuse isnít much better.

The film isnít scary and I didnít really care for any of the one-dimensional characters, so there wasnít even a good reason to invest time in this. Even the promise of Ďreal bodiesí (Iím sceptical) for more morbid viewers isnít enough of a reason to check this out.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Unrest is the worst of the 8 films to die for so far.
