The Unborn

 (2009)

The Unborn Blu-ray delivers great video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

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.

For more about The Unborn and the The Unborn Blu-ray release, see the The Unborn Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Odette Annable (Yustman), Gary Oldman, Meagan Good, Cam Gigandet, James Remar, Atticus Shaffer
Director: David S. Goyer

The Unborn Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Unborn features a slick, oft-times striking 1080p/VC-1 transfer that renders Goyer's limp beasties with a technical proficiency befitting a more substantial release. Cinematographer James Hawkinson has intentionally stripped his palette of primary punch -- offering bleak, wintery hues in place of searing reds or vibrant blues -- but crisp contrast, bottomless blacks, and absorbing shadows combine forces to produce a strong and stable image. While a few scenes (chief among them a post-copulation chat between Casey and Mark) lack the refined textures that frequent the rest of the film, fine detail and overall clarity is quite impressive. Better still, Goyer's special effects and CG enhanced visuals are fairly seamless, even under the scrutiny of such a revealing high definition presentation. Even though a few late-in-the-game dybbuk flare-ups are plagued by noticeable (albeit negligible) artifacts, the picture remains steady and consistent throughout. All in all, I didn't encounter any significant digital anomalies, color banding, unsightly edge enhancement, or meddlesome noise reduction. It may not be the greatest transfer Universal has released on the market, but it is a noteworthy effort that helps ease the pain of watching The Unborn unfold.


The Unborn Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Despite having all the subtlety of a blaring boombox in a local haunted house, The Unborn's faithful DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track gets the job done, forcing the listener to peak around every sonic corner and peer into every aural shadow until an inevitable blast of sound sends them retreating into their seats. Dialogue -- whispered, muttered, or screamed -- remains clear and intelligible, low-end support is weighty and robust, and rear speaker activity is aggressive... at least when called upon. Much of Goyer's story takes place in dusty abandoned buildings, quiet houses, and empty forests. As such, the mix can be a bit front-heavy at times, pulling the soundfield forward and inadvertently pushing the audience out of the film. Thankfully, the majority of the experience is enveloping, relying on precise ambient effects, convincing interior acoustics, and chilling pans to make the most of Goyer's all-too-expected scares. It certainly isn't the most frightening lossless track you'll encounter, but it is a competent and commendable one. Anyone who finds themselves sinking into Casey's world will be pleased with the results.
