The Unborn Review
Written by: AgingHorrorFan
The previews would have us believe this is a terror classic along the lines of Poltergiest or The Exorcist. The reality is a far cry from it.
The Unborn has a few really interesting ideas in it and a few good, old-fashioned scares , but little else to offer. In fact, the entire premise seems based on "Boo! Gotcha" moments, which are initially quite effective, but soon wear out their welcome. The story itself is so pedestrian that most of the tension is bled right out of movie.
But leading lady Odette Yustman does look nice in her underwear. And we get to see Gary Oldman in a role Donald Pleasance would have pounced on in his heyday. Too bad the rest of The Unborn doesn't live up to them.
