Rather average South Korean horror.
21 December 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Television producer Han-Soo Jin is covering detective Choi,the main cop on a serial murder case whose victims are all women,with special interest.Choi follows the suspect through a nightclub filled with party goers,with producer Han following with her camera.Suddenly a woman on the dance floor falls to the ground.Han can't believe what she saw through the viewfinder,but during that time the woman has died.She thought she saw 'something' going inside the woman's body,causing it to swell.The investigating team are drawn deeper into the case by the discovery that all the victims had visited a mysterious website called 'White Room'."Unborn But Forgotten" clearly copied many ideas from Japanese horror hit "Ringu" and "FearDotCom".We've got another killer website which kills women,only this time it takes fifteen days for people to die instead of seven or two.Admittedly the film is well-made with all the high production values I expected from Korean cinema.There are some creepy moments and the soundtrack is wonderful.Unfortunately this is strictly routine stuff,but if you like Asian horror give it a look.7 out of 10.
