Woeful horror tale

THE UNBORN is one of those vapid Hollywood horror flicks that you forget about soon after watching. The only thing it's notable for is wasting the talents of Gary Oldman, who plays in support as a Rabbi exorcist (!). The dead-headed lead is the usual attractive young actress with extremely limited acting ability. She's a babysitter who starts to experience scary visions of a ghostly young boy and comes to believe that her own dead twin brother is haunting her. Predictability ensues, all taking place within the safe PG-13 banner. The scares seem indebted to the Japanese horror genre but this fails to be frightening for even an instant; I ended up laughing at it instead.

Oh God!! Why???? I am so disappointed

This movie.....boy....it is the opposite of horror. Is there even an opposite of horror? Romance? Comedy? I don't know. But 3 seconds into this movie and I started playing on my phone.

Like, literally, the movie is on, right now, and I'm writing a review. It's so horrible, that even my scaredy cat kids are on THEIR phones!

I should've known that this movie was some garbage when I saw Megan Good. She was good in Eve's Bayou.....and that was it. If it's a horror flick and she's anywhere in it, don't watch it. It's automatically going to be a total yawnfest. Though I haven't gotten anywhere near the middle of this movie, I already know it's going to be a total and complete waste of my time.

OK, so I managed to get through the movie. And I have never accidentally laughed so hard in my life!!! I mean, my ribs were hurting! I stated earlier that the opposite of a horror was a comedy. Well, in this case, it was a knee slapping comedy!!

I had no idea that a movie could be so bad that it's hilarious!!! I'm laughing as I type this review. If you need a good laugh, please, I IMPLORE YOU, watch this movie!!! Feeling depressed? By all means, give it a look-see!

Just another lost soul...

The Sinister Synopsis: What begins as an ultra-vivid, spectral nightmare for Casey Beldon (Odette Yustman; Cloverfield, 2008), becomes a relentless reality as the spirit of a young boy pursues her every step until it captures the essence of her naive soul. Now it's up to a Rabbi (Gary Oldman) a priest and Casey's dip-$hit boyfriend (does this formula sound rather familiar?) to help save her from a morbid mishap stemming from the age-old catastrophe of Nazi experimentation in Auschwitz (Dr. Josef Mengele, anyone?)

The Diabolical Desire: As far as positives are concerned, there's next to nothing to consider except the mildly Gothic ambiance that's felt when Casey watches the film of the psychiatric hospital where her mother had committed suicide, but even that's digging at the bottom of the barrel a bit too much.

The Rancid Reaction: Where to begin when it comes to a generic, subtle script that's easily lost in the flood of this modern, supernatural sub-genre. For starters, forgettable CGI effects, below-par acting (even with the installment of Oldman) and scare tactics that are far too predictable and tired are just a few qualities (or lack thereof) added into what could have equated to a tenser, more intimidating production, hence its watered down PG-13 rating...but hey, high school kids need their fair share of fright too, I suppose.

The Axed Addendum: As a follow up to his trend of co-writing "Batman Begins" (2005) and "The Dark Knight" (2008), writer/director David S. Goyer flopped in taking a stab at creating a horror flick that just doesn't stand out from the herd of clich├ęs we haven't seen before. Not even the more "sensual" approach at marketing the film's one-sheet can resurrect this one from the wretched wasteland of Horrid Horror.
