I can sum this up real quick, THE UNBORN should have stayed unborn.
Everything great about or good about this film was shown in the trailer (I hate it when they do that).
Honestly, I felt like I've seen this movie a hundred times before.
Seemed like it was just a rip from THE GRUDGE or THE RING.
Effects that were once cool the first thousand times I saw them become nothing more than a CGI waste.
The Lead, Odette Yustman, was strictly eye candy.
Now don't get me wrong, she is smoking hot but every other scene it's her in skimpy clothing (see the movie poster).
The funny thing is, the story itself had potential but the script, scares and pretty much everything ruined any chance for this film.
Maybe a different director could have salvaged something . . .. ahhhh who am I kidd'n.
How they got Gary Oldman involved in this is beyond me, he obviously needed some money and nce he's only in this film for a total of 15 minutes screen time, it's a pay check I guess.
However, Rogue Pictures' The Unborn took in an impresve $21,095,000 (estimated) for the #3 spot at the box office this weekend.
The only problem is, if they keep putting out crap like this other upcoming horror releases might get passed on.
People will get tired of spending money on horror flicks that were made strictly to make money. Movies like "THE UNBORN" have no art or creative involvement what-so-ever.
If movies like this can get made and released but others like "Trick R' Treat" can't see the light of day (even though Trick R' Treat already has a cult following and nobody has even seen it yet) then what the crap is up with Hollywood these days?
I'll tell you what, the art of story telling is dying fast in the Horror Genre . . . and greed is digging it's grave.amen to that. I went with Fenner today to watch this garbage and I am sad I did. We did however watch Gran Turino and that more than made up for the UNBORN!
