Casey Beldon has become plagued by merciless dreams, visions of strange looking dogs, and an evil child with bright blue eyes. After being hit with a mirror by her neighbor's son, Casey's eyes begin to change color and she learns she had a twin brother who died in the womb. Casey begins to suspect that the spirit haunting her is the soul of her dead twin who became possessed by a malevolent spirit known as dybbuk. The spirit wants to be born so it can transfer to the world of the living. Casey meets a woman named Sofi who explains that as a child, she had a twin brother who was killed in Nazi experiments and he was brought back to life by a dybbuk who intended to use his body as a portal into the world of the living. Sofi killed the dybbuk and now it haunts her family for revenge. Sofi refers Casey to Rabbi Sendak who can perform a Jewish exorcism to remove the dybbuk. The exorcism is performed, but things go awry as the dybbuk tries to stop the ritual from being completed. The dybbuk disappears after the exorcism and soon afterward, Casey learns she is pregnant with twins.

Great horror movie somewhat scary and great twist.

Movies such as The Unborn are only worth watching when you and your friends decide to get together and play an amateurish game of Mystery Science Theatre. That is about all this movie is worth.

This movie was terrible. “Dumb, Boring and Stupid” Waste of time - Waste of Electrical power.
It would be a waste of money to buy. "I fast forwarded all the way."

Skip It – The Unborn (2009) 89 min. Horror films continue pushing the limit on how far they will go and “The Unborn” is no exception. This film focuses on demonic possession of not the living but the dead themselves. The writers threw everything in this film, including Kabbalah mysticism to exorcize the demon and a connection to the Holocaust. In the end, we do have some creepy scenes in this one but the film is so wrought with ugliness that one feels disgust rather than fear. I still love a good ghost story with no special effects and gore but replaced with an eerie score, imaginative camera work and situations. I can't remeber another film that didn’t use a Catholic priest to exorcize a demon.
