I do have to blame shame where shame is due here in the first place, though. The fact that filmmakers are stooping to make PG-13 horror (er, excuse me: thriller) films just so you can get in without your ID is offensive enough (taking all of the fun of sneaking in away in the process), but their constant need to release these “unrated” editions on home video side-by-side with the rated versions just to milk the cash cow is downright degrading to even an average public schooled teenager’s intelligence.
In case I forgot to say this, The Unborn sucks. Even Count Floyd would have a hard time selling this one. Personally, I can’t wait for Michael Bay’s upcoming Mormon antichrist film to hit theaters. It’s called Elder Smith’s New Baby, and the plot involves a frantic missionary whose belief is pushed to the limit when his most recent baby (from his third wife) is born with dark skin and a “666” on its ass. And if you found that insulting, try pitting your IQ against The Unborn. No, hold that thought — you shouldn’t see it. It’s just not worth it. Stick with The Exorcist, The Omen, Rosemary‘s Baby, The Mephisto Waltz or even Abby (1974) instead.
