Did You Know?

Goofs

Virginia fires a pistol until it's empty, then we hear two clicks. These clicks would be heard if the gun were a revolver, as the barrel rotates and the hammer falls on an empty chamber. A semi-automatic pistol would not make a sound, as the slide would be stuck in the open position as would the hammer. See more »

Never, Ever Judge A Movie By The IMDb Rating
22 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am an average Horror/Sci-Fi/Thriller/Creature Feature movie buff. I am 62 and have seen them all including the Asian Creature Features to the Nordic Horrors. I will give anyone their right to an opinion....but.....the rating system on many of the movies on this sight have been skewed by someone having a bad day.

Very few Horror et.al.movies make it to the Oscars. So what...those of us who are fanatics of these films have an odd sense of appreciation for the unbelievable.

The Unborn is a good movie....I like Brooke Adams....I like mad scientists...I like freaky things that squish in the night...I like house wives that are slightly nuts....I like husbands who don't have a clue....I like Lisa Kudrow (did you see her????) Those of you who want to sit back and watch a really good Sci-Fi/Horror will have fun with this one. So skip the ratings and watch the movie. (And don't forget the popcorn.)
