***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!
David S. Goyer directed one of those indie flicks that everyone kind of likes, ZigZag, but that don't leave them with much hope for his future as a director, if that makes sense. Hollywood co-opted him pretty quick, and his big-time output bore that out (Blade: Trinity, anyone?). So it was back to the indie scene, and once again, he's directed one of those indie flicks. But not as many people like this one. I actually like it better than ZigZag, but while it's generic and derivative, compared to most of the horror flicks I've seen recently, it's not that bad at all.
Casey (Cloverfield's Odette Yustman) is your typical American girl, save one thing: she seems to be haunted by one of those black-eyed kids so common to Asian horror movies. After a quick bit of detective work, she finds out that she was a twin, but that her brother was stillborn. She jumps to the obvious conclusion, and starts trying to figure out how to get rid of the ghost with the help of some of her friends (including rising stars Meagan Good and Cam Gigandet), a Holocaust survivor (Jane Alexander), and a helpful, if skeptical, rabbi (Gary Oldman).
I've said it before, very recently, and I'll say it again here: American attempts to make Asian horror movies fail because American screenwriters, or American directors, or American studios, or someone, fails to understand that Asian horror flicks (the best of them anyway) are so good because the creepy atmosphere arises naturally from the character development. We're stuck on the effects and the black-eyed kids. Because of this, our attempts tend to be mediocre at best, and this ranks right there with them.Read more ›
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.

Not a great movie, but always kept me interested. Covers some old ground, like the "The Exorcist." Good acting overall from a good cast and nicely photographed. Read morePublished 4 months ago by InsultinSultan
Good horror flick and Annabelle is strangely beautiful and a fine actress. I look at her and can't place the reason why she is so gorgeous but I can't look away.Published 5 months ago by TMcgee 4407
This movie began with a scary scene and was relentlessly scary throughout. The story unfolded a little too slowly (really the only complaint we could think of), but the story was... Read morePublished 5 months ago by I'd rather be at the Beach
