THE UNBORN = horror stillborn - stunted scarefest. GRADE: D-minus

I attended the special advance press screening of this BAD 'horror' movie last week - and I practically yawned through the entire 88 minutes of this Michael Bay produced over-indulgent mess. I could not decide if I was either watching a video of underwear commercial/modeling sessions or a comedy horror-flick - what with Odette Yustman prancing around in her tight skimpy underwear, and the scary scenes were at times comical. The cast's acting was mediocre at best - even the usually commendable Gary Oldman seemed bored in his role as Rabbi Sendak. And let's not even get started on the HORRIFIC dialogue/lines in the movie - who wrote this stuff??? Anyway, watch it at your peril - I'm glad I did not pay to watch this trash. VERDICT: Recommended for the most hardcore insatiable fans of horror movies. Otherwise, skip it or wait for the DVD. Note: At least this movie is better than The Ruins and most of the recent Japanese nonsensical horror films.

If you are going to the movie theaters to go watch the UNBORN. Do not go. That has got to be the most retarded movie I have ever seen. The only reason why I would think anyone would want to watch it is because Odette Yustman (main character) is utterly beautiful. And somewhat resembles Megan Fox. So plz ppl. Save you $10 to go buy 10 tacos or something. I bet you that will be a lot more satisfying than wasting 1 1/2 hours of your life.
