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 »

Super creepy movie!
21 July 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

The Unborn is a very, very different film. James Karen & Brooke Adams are in the film and they performed quite well. this film is builds up solidly and it keeps you going. Though I think you must be a horror fan to watch this because of the scenes and the plot. There is one brief sex scene with no nudity that could have been left out and to some people this scene may disappoint someone like Me that's into the film and thinks that stuff ruins a good film but that's it when it comes to that. There is a scene where Adams' character goes nuts and kills a cat but you can tell its not real. The music is very different but very good. The Unborn in My opinion is a really creepy film that's superbly unpredictable and that's quite strange! I recommend all horror fans to this movie!
