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…

Amazon.com

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

    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.

    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!

    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 really, really interesting and based on true facts from World War II! The makeup and effects were topnotch and the settings were appropropriately dark and creepy. There are some heavy-hitting actors, too…Gary Oldman, Idris Elba (who is being considered to play the next James Bond), Jane Alexander and Carla Gugino). Parts of this movie were as scary as The Exorcist! It is SO DIFFICULT to find a really good scary movie, and this is one of them (I'd love to give it 4.5 Stars).

    UPDATE: My daughter watched it with a couple of friends one night, and they asked her to turn it off so they could watch it during the daytime…they said it was too scary to watch at night!!!

    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.

    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. You won't be disappointed, but you won't be blown away, either.

    This movie is alright,in summary their is a girl who is seeing visions of a little boy and she is being haunted. She sees some crazy stuff taking her friends. She finds out that she is being haunted by the ghost of her dead twin,she never knew she had a twin but it died at birth. So he is trying to posess his sister and use the evil power to overthrow the world and take conteol and bring h*ll on earth. This is pretty corny like the Grudge or the Ring but not as good as the Ring. The gore is very little,even the unrated version does not show much gore it is mostly offscreen. If you want a film that isn't that gory or scary you might enjoy this. I was not impressed but there is not much to keep your attention,i saw it last week but i barely remember it. Shows how memorable it is.

    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!
