David Goyer’s horror movie “The Unborn” is about a brunette in modern day New York who realizes that she’s babysitting the ghost of some kid who died during the Holocaust. Or maybe the devil is trying to be reborn through her while she’s babysitting the neighbor boy. Okay, so I’m not entirely sure what it’s about, but it looks like it’s got all the elements of a good ol fashion chiller — cute girl gets stalked, gets help from a rabbi played by Gary Oldman, and fun is had by all. Well, except for all the people who die between the girl realizing what’s going on and the rabbi coming to the rescue. I’m guessing Meagan Good’s character doesn’t make it. Call it a hunch.
Casey Beldon hated her mother for abandoning her as a child. But when inexplicable events begin to happen, Casey begins to understand why she left. Plagued by merciless dreams and a tortured ghost that haunts her waking hours, she must turn to the only person, Rabbi Sendak, who can make it stop. With the help of Sendak, her best friend Romy and boyfriend Mark, Casey uncovers the source of a family curse dating back to Nazi Germany–a creature with the ability to inhabit anyone or anything that is getting stronger with each possession. With the curse unleashed, her only chance at survival is to shut a doorway from beyond our world that has been pried open by someone who was never born.
Starring Odette Yustman, Gary Oldman, Cam Gigandet, Meagan Good, Jane Alexander, Idris Elba, Rachel Brosnahan, Rhys Coiro, Carla Gugino, and directed by David S. Goyer.
