When I rented this movie I somewhat expected a disgusting gorefest, seeing that the case inlay seemed to put quite an emphasis that there are real corpses in this movie.
In that regard, I was disappointed. "Unrest" is more like a thriller, although I found the anatomy lab scenes to be done really good. They actually left me feeling something, compared to the over-the-top gore scenes normally seen in movies. I liked that. I also liked that the movie completely neglects the "loud and noisy" shock section, except for one scene. Instead it slowly builds up tension by using music. Whether that works with you or not is probably a personal matter. It did for me. It isn't overly suspenseful and didn't keep me on the edge of my seat, but its premise is interesting and kept my attention through the whole movie.
Still, the movie had some serious flaws for me: First of all, the background of the cadaver isn't really explored. That's a shame, I would have loved more background info on that one, as the basic idea is pretty interesting, but it doesn't go much further than that. There are plot holes, too, and some scenes make you question the heroes' collective sanity. The main character's development is rather hasty, too. The acting is decent, though.
Overall I still had a really good time with this movie.
