For those of you not aware, The Unborn is a new horror movie written and directed by The Dark Knight scribe, David Goyer. A new trailer, images, and a website have now been released to the masses.
The film stars Odette Yustman (Cloverfield), Gary Oldman (Harry Potter), Meagan Good (Saw V), Cam Gigandet (Never Back Down), James Remar (Pineapple Express) with Jane Alexander (The Ring), Carla Gugino (Sin City), and Idris Elba (American Gangster). It’s being released on January 9, 2009. It’s also produced by Michael Bay (Michael Bay!).
With so many God-awful horror movies coming out, we can only hope this one is a terrifying refresher. The movie looks like your typical horror movie concoction — pretty people, people/things twitching and horrifying children. But with the addition of Gary Oldman to that mixture, it may just be worth a peek; there has to be a reason he signed on! Now we play the waiting game to see if it gets the dreaded PG-13 kiss of death.
Check out the trailer, images, and synopsis here below and be sure to visit the official site.
Sometimes the soul of a dead person has been so tainted with evil that it is denied entrance to heaven. It must endlessly wander the borderlands between worlds, desperately searching for a new body to inhabit.
And sometimes it actually succeeds.
Writer/director David Goyer (Blade: Trinity, The Invisible, Batman Begins) gives a terrifying glimpse into the life of the undead in The Unborn, a supernatural thriller that follows a young woman pulled into a world of nightmares when a demonic spirit haunts her and threatens everyone she loves.
Casey Beldon (Odette Yustman) hated her mother for leaving her as a child. But when inexplicable things start 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 spiritual advisor, Sendak (Gary Oldman), who can make it stop.
With Sendak’s help, 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.
