Trivia

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 »

Bizarre, Grotesque and Dark
7 January 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The unfertile Virginia (Brooke Adams) and her husband, Brad Marshall (Jeff Hayenga), decide to join an experimental in-vitro fertilization program developed by Dr. Richard Meyerling (James Karen). The trial succeeds, but along the pregnancy, Virginia finds that something weird is happening with the fetus.

"The Unborn" is a very reasonable low-budget horror movie. Bizarre in some moments, grotesque in others, and dark as a whole, this movie has a very strong and disturbing scene, when a pregnant woman stabs herself in the belly. Therefore, it is certainly not recommended to pregnant women watch this film. I do not agree with the comparison with the masterpiece "Rosemary's Baby", since the stories are totally different, having in common only the pregnancy of something weird. I found this movie a good entertainment. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Bebê Maldito" ("The Damned Baby")
