The doorway is open.

THE UNBORN is a weird mix of Jewish mysticism, horror, amazing special effects and the creepiest little boy ever!! Casey has a problem. Her dead great uncle is stalking her. It seems he wants to come back and a relative is his best chance. The actress who plays Casey bears a striking resemblance to Megan Fox that is a little distracting at first. The story is very intense and while the gore is at a minimum, there are some horrific visuals that made the hair on the back of my neck prickle. Add to the mix, Gary Oldman as a rabbi and Jane Alexander as a Nazi death camp survivor and THE UNBORN is a very potent thrill ride.

So, try THE UNBORN. It's a good way to spend a dark and stormy night.

And don't forget the birth control.

I don't know why people think Megan Fox is in this. She's not. It's Meagan Good. Anyway, after seeing the trailer for this, I knew I just had to see it. It seriously looked awesome, plus Gary Oldman is amazing. I rented this when it came out on DVD and I can say I was highly disappointed. It's not very scary. I think the most frightening scene involves Gary's character and a dog. I don't know where this movie was trying to go, but it failed, in my opinion. Definitely one I would not watch again.

Very, very creepy supernatural thriller. Of course, one must temporarily suspend normal beliefs and attitudes to enjoy the film. I loved Jane Alexander as the old woman with a secret. Odette Yustman is not only gorgeous, but a fine actress, as well.

The Unborn - 4 **** Rating

"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."
A lotta womb for improvement

"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.

I must admit, I'm still confused

"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!

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!"
