Interesting movie, but not scary...
25 July 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Unborn But Forgotten" is essentially a Korean horror movie that on the surface seems to be nothing more than a rip off of the Japanese "Ringu" movies. But once you get further into the plot, it is revealed that the movie is more than just so. Think "Fear.com" mixed with "Ringu" and "The Unborn", then you have the end result that is "Unborn But Forgotten".

The story; women die approximately two weeks after they have logged into a mysterious web page that draws them in and lets the women have a scene of their own deaths. But just before dying the women becomes pregnant, even though they weren't pregnant prior to dying. Han Su-jin (played by Eun-ju Lee) moves into the apartment where a woman died, and cyber detective Lee Seok (played by Jun-ho Jeong) is on the case. What is the reason behind this mysterious, supernatural deaths?

For a horror movie, I found "Unborn But Forgotten" to be rather dull, there were the odd moments where the director tried to spook you with a shock scene, but it didn't really mount up to anything grand. I am not saying that it is a boring movie, far from it. It just wasn't scary. If anything, then it was intriguing and thought provoking.

The movie is nicely shot and well edited, and there is a great production value to it, which really helped the movie along. Plus the acting performances were really great. I can't recall having seen either Jun-ho Jeong or Eun-ju Lee prior to this movie though.

"Unborn But Forgotten" is not your average Korean ghost movie, because there is no lady in a white gown with black hair covering her face, so that was a nice breath of fresh air to the supernatural ghost genre for once. However, "Unborn But Forgotten" really didn't stand out, and there are many far better Korean horror movies available.

But if you are fed up with the ladies in white gowns and black hair covering their faces type of ghost movies from Asia, then give "Unborn But Forgotten" a chance, it might just be the type of supernatural thriller you are looking for.
