- Synopsis / Plot
- A young woman fights the spirit that is slowly taking possession of her. Casey Bell hated her mother for leaving her as a child. But when inexplicable things start to happen, Casey begins to understand why she left. Plagued by merciless dreams and a tortured ghost that haunts her waking hours, she must turn to the only spiritual advisor, Sendak, who can make it stop. With Sendak's help, Casey uncovers the source of a family curse dating back to Nazi Germany -a creature with the ability to inhabit anyone or anything that is getting stronger with each possession. With the curse unleashed, her only chance at survival is to shut a doorway from beyond our world that has been pried open by someone who was never born.
- Critics' reviews
"I enjoyed the visual effects used to create some hellish creatures and the amusing nods to 'The Exorcist' - cranial rotation, even a spooky staircase. But the movie slips in the last act."
Kyle Smith: New York Post
"Whereas Japanese horror movies have been criticized for not making sense, The Unborn errs on the opposite extreme, coming off all the more ridiculous for over-explaining itself."
Peter Debruge: Variety
"A laughably bad horror flick (...) 'The Unborn' cribs from so many movies, it's enough to make your head spin. (…) Rating: ★½ (out of 5)"
