3/10: The Exorcism of Casey Beldon
Wednesday, April 1, 2009

January is not such a good time for movies. The holiday season is over people are getting back to work and school and their normal lives, and the movie studios seem to take this opportunity to unload all their half-witted movies that probably no one is going to be interested in anyway. It seems that way every time I see a movie like The Unborn, anyway. This thing is so thin and weak it's like a cinematic version of weak tea, and weak tea is not something you want your audience to be thinking about while they're suffering through your scary movie.Brought to us by the director of Blade: Trinity (and pretty much nothing else), The Unborn is the story of a girl who had a twin that died in utero because her umbilical cord had wrapped around his neck in the womb and strangled him, and she didn't become aware of it until decades...

3/10: Dead on Delivery
Thursday, February 19, 2009

It is of little surprise to come across a lame horror film in the early year studio dumping grounds but it is however surprising to learn that such a film is not an Asian horror remake even if it seems to be trying quite hard to be one. One thing I would like to clear up is that this is not The Uninvited (a superior thriller) this is The Unborn (a superiorly bad chiller), so make sure you don't go to the wrong one.David S. Goyer is a peculiar man. Having scripted and developed stories for fantastic films such as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Blade and some other upcoming superhero efforts, every time he fortes' into directing the results are all but underwhelming. That is not to say all writers can direct as this is certainly not the case, but I am confused as how even the writing in the features he directs are poor such as...

3/10: Jumby wants to be in a better movie
Sunday, March 22, 2009

Well at least the trailer was scary, from the moment I saw the trailer for The Unborn I knew I wanted to see this movie, it looked so freaky and like the ultimate scare. So before it left theaters, I finally saw it and I should've realized, it's PG-13, how rare is it that we get a PG-13 horror movie that is actually scary? Sadly all the "intense" moments were shown in the trailer and I was extremely disappointed with this lousy movie. I couldn't believe how bad it was, it once again has every cliché in a horror film that you can imagine: the black best friend, the loving boyfriend, the hot skinny girl who is constantly in her underwear, the jumps, the mirrors, the nightmares, the over acting. I do have one question: did Gary Oldman owe someone a favor when he took this film? It's just mind-boggling, he's this...

3/10: The Unborn
Saturday, July 25, 2009

Kind of a tame CGI fest Hebrew Exorcist regarding a sexy young woman, Casey(Odette Yustman)tormented by a "dybukk", a demon which wishes to have passage through her into our world of the living. It comes in the form of a young boy and will prey upon her friends and loved ones in order to gain access to her, feeding upon her fear. She calls upon the expertise of a rabbi(Gary Oldman, wasted in an underwritten role)to help her stop the fiend through the recited scripture from a tome known as the "Book of mirrors", used in a ceremonial setting(..a place that is upsetting to her, in this film the ruins of a mental hospital her mother committed suicide in) hoping to silence it.Casey experiences strange nightmares featuring a dog with a mask. She notices a freaky ghost boy with creepy aqua blue eyes. In a nightmare she uncovers a fetus in a jar buried...

This is an astonishing story about a vengeful specter who kills everybody go into his past .
