Unrest (2006)

Unrest (2006)

Country:  USA

Director: Jason Todd Ipson

Main Stars: Corri English, Scot Davis, Joshua Alba, Marisa Petroro

Storyline: A possible spirit is killing off all that have handle or desecrated the body at the morgue.

Review (Spoils): So at the medical school we have students Alison (Corri English), Brian, Carlos (Joshua Alba) and Rick who get the body of young woman (Marisa Petroro) who seems to have been butchered for their dissection class. Alison feels a connection with the body and has a feeling she is trying to communicate with her. As Alison looks into the history of the woman, we learn that she was once a prostitute that killed off her johns. As the class and the boys become morons, she starts to kill them off one by one.

The film really focuses on the past of the mystery women and the connection with the lead Alison. We have the odd want to show skin scene (hey it’s a horror film), blood pools, some nasty cuts, haunting woman screaming and some shady video footage. Near the end, we have some gore and the actual creepy tale goes full flight.

Now the bad of the film. The stupidity of people and their actions in this film. Why are these kids still living at the hospital while all this weird shit is going on? They are fighting a curse but act like oh boy I wonder what that was I better open the door. The film lacks the thought train.

Rating: The two women of the film is what makes it along with the sounds and the creepiness that exists. The storyline (back-story) is actually nice and new but the film does have some flaws. The film is actually not bad for being part of the After Dark Horrorfest. Marisa Petroro is a memorable villain.

Review (Spoils): We have another film from the After Dark Horror-fest series, this one is also tied to the undead and ghosts. We have a mine in 1913 that used children as slave workers that had an explosion that buried the young ones underneath the rumble.  We now move to the present with the young Karen Tunny (Lori Heuring) who lost her husband and has left her broke with two young girls. They move into a small broken down house that the mine once was near and they hear tales of zombies and tales to stay inside at night. Karen’s young girls get involved into the ghost tales and one of her daughter disappears.

We have children talking to ghosts, nightmares of child murders, the haunting woods and the broken mine and some sappily spooky zombie children. The story is nothing really new and the scares are limited as its all been done before. Nothing really new here…

Rating: The main characters are actually really good in the film the problem with this film is that the whole zombie ghost thing has been overdone by now and nothing really stands out.This type of film is not targeted I think to true horror fans that have seen it all but maybe for the younger faint at heart crowd.
