Many films initially considered exploitative turn out to be classics. Take Taxi Driver, for example, which was booed at Cannes, and which juror Tennessee Williams publicly criticized for excessive violence.

I doubt this movie will be a classic, but it does look interesting. Certainly a lot more interesting than most horror flicks being made today.

Is it unethical? I don't think so, anymore than any other horror movie is unethical. Horror movies, by their very nature, are "exploitative". Do we avoid slasher movies because someone was murdered in real life? I don't go to slasher movies, but that's just because I find them boring, not "unethical".

Personally I would find it unethical if the movie exploited a particular case - like one in the first post - but it doesn't, it tackles the subject matter as a whole.
