    Gary Oldman as an exorcist in an evil-twin movie inflected with Jewish mysticism? You're already halfway there, right? Hold on, because The Unborn is one of those horror movies that sounds more intriguing in synopsis than it plays. Pity unfortunate babysitter Odette Yustman (Cloverfield), who begins experiencing weird visions just about the time she learns she had a twin that died before birth. Said ghostly twin is suddenly popping up everywhere, leading Yustman to visit a rabbi (that's Oldman) who suspects she is haunted by a dybbuk, a spirit of Jewish legend. All of which is a reasonable set-up, but the movie that results is so ham-fistedly written and played that a few good early shocks dissolve in general ludicrousness. Writer-director David S. Goyer, who worked on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, displays a tin ear here--the presence of a surprisingly decent cast (Jane Alexander, Idris Elba) simply demonstrates how bad the dialogue is: if they can't speak it, nobody could. The movie's biggest reach is tying its half-baked creepy-kid act to a backstory that includes Auschwitz--well, you can't say Goyer lacks nerve. There's always Oldman, who never backs down from a little scenery chewing if the cause is already lost. It's not enough to salvage this one. --Robert Horton

    Product Description

    Enter a world of unrelenting evil as terror finds a new form in The Unborn. From the producers of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the co-writer of The Dark Knight comes this shocking supernatural thriller about a young woman (Odette Yustman) plagued by chilling dreams and tortured by a demonic ghost that haunts her waking hours. Her only hope to break the debilitating paranormal curse is in an exorcism with spiritual advisor Sendak (Gary Oldman). See what lies beyond the doorway of our world in this non-stop nightmare of the undead…

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Unborn - 4 **** Rating July 12, 2009
    Format:DVD
    My review is on the Unrated version. The Unborn kept me on the edge of my seat thru out and the movie runs at a brisk pace. There was very little gore in this movie but I think you find it wasn't necessary. It maintains a level of creepiness from the very first minute. Odette Yustman plays the young woman who is the target of a demonic spirit and Gary Oldman is the Rabbi who leads the failed Exorcism (does anyone think Gary looks remarkably like a young Peter O'Toole in this film?). I definitely don't think the film deserves all the negative critcism it received. Negative reviews tend to lower one's expectations - for me it was a pleasant surprise. I think you will find the 90 minutes viewing scary time well spent.

    3.0 out of 5 stars I must admit, I'm still confused July 9, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This was an okay horror flick. I love a good scary movie and I did leap from my seat in a couple of scenes, but I also like a really good scary story, and this one just kept confusing me!

    ***WARNING, SPOILERS AHEAD, ONLY READ IF YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE***
    First, our main character is haunted by demonic visions... then she babysits a demonic child! Then we learn she had a twin that died in utero. So...ok... her twin brother is haunting her. NO! We find out it's a demon spirit haunting her and since her brother died in the womb, it's now after her. OK, so what's with the demonic child our heroine was babysitting? We find out that the spirit is trying to possess her because a twin is the easiest way for it to enter our world... but no! It's already possessed the neighbor boy. And continues to possess almost every other character in the movie except for the one that is suppose to be the "easiest". I didn't understand this plot hole or why Nazi experimentation caused demonic possession or why this girl's mother killed herself instead of staying to save her daughter from the evil she knew about. There were too many strings left dangling in this movie for me to really get into it although the visual effects were definitely scary -- it's story telling that really gives me the goosebumps, not crazy cgi effects and latex creatures!

    2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointing... July 13, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This had the potential of being a good horror film, but as is the story with so many movies... the good bits are shown in the trailer! I really was disappointed not to have watched it in the theater b/c my brother was too scared to go! I waited with much anticipation for the dvd, only to settle down and be thoroughly disappointed. It isn't scary at all. Sure, some of the effects are good, but the story is lacking and leaves you wondering why you bagan watching it in the first place. Anyone want to buy my dvd copy? I'll give you a great price!

    2.0 out of 5 stars A lotta womb for improvement August 12, 2009
    Format:DVD
    Better strap on some protection, UNBORN is impregnated with cheap scares, a convoluted plot, and pathetically squalid dream sequences. If you are feeling a kick from inside telling you to PUSH! this into your dvd player, I must advise you--ABORT!!!!! Grab a hangar and kill that idea quickly. It's films like these that have turned the U.S. into the red-headed stepchild of the horror industry. Nothing shocking, creepy, or interesting about this story, other than the basic premise.

    Young Casey (Odette Yustman) was born with something missing--her twin sister. Damn shame too, Casey's hotter than global warming. Anyway, she's begins having some warped dreams and gets harassed by an evil spirit from another dimension. Oh joy.

    Basically this feels like the spoiled little demonchild of THE EXORCIST and JU-ON. Demonically dumb, send this hellacious turd back down the sewage from which it came.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Can We Say "Formula" July 16, 2009
    Format:DVD
    There is nothing original about this Exorcist wannabe - same old story of young female being harassed by ghostly demon kid (well, kid with black hair and white makeup) who wants to possess cockroaches or humans - whichever is creepiest for the moment.
    Same old story of people in abandoned church in a circle reading some religious text in non-English to scare the demon out of the female and into something that isn't quite clearly explained.
    Demon as usual is a bit feisty and doesn't stay still so expresses his displeasure by tossing people and things.
    Most everybody lives, things are fine except as usual female star is pregnant and guess what's coming out. Well, we don't know but Unborn II will tell us.
    Conclusion: Acting was OK, script was tedious; story was redundant; effects were copycat impoverished.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not you, Gary.... Not you! July 17, 2009
    Format:DVD
    Watching 'The Unborn' is witnessing how unoriginal and formulaic Hollywood can be. There's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in this movie that's not borrowed from some other movie. Even some shots are exactly the same.
    And Gee... jump scares? really? so cheap. so cheap. Simply embarrasing.
    Two things kept me intrigued till the end of the movie, though: 1- Why did Platinum Dunes (a good company in the horror field) produce this movie and mainly, 2- Why is Gary Oldman in it?!?! Now that's scary.

    1.0 out of 5 stars potential wasted July 18, 2009
    Format:DVD
    this movie had potential in the plot line, but the many twists and curves were covered so topically that the audience comes away dissatisfied. i could have done without some of the tense drama in lieu of real explanation or character development.

    characters die for the shock value...in a movie that should be more suspense thriller/horror than slash flick. if someone tackled the screenplay with a stronger veto for the 'junk scenes', this could become far better than it was.

    all in all, it was a disappointment.
