Synopsis

Casey Beldon (Odette Yustman) is being haunted by ghostly dreams. Her attempts to make sense of the phenomenon only uncovers bigger mysteries, so the non-practicing Jew turns to her Rabbi (Gary Oldman) with the hope that he will be able to exorcise her problem.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Unborn...

This teen horror (all characters are depicted as college aged) relies on typical scary conventions to provide its young audience with a sense of fright (stormy nights, ghoulish faces, etc.). More serious content elements involve a plot exploring satanic possession from a Jewish perspective. Characters depicted as possessed by evil spirits distort and disfigure their bodies, and brutally attack others. A little boy is run over by a car. A person is stabbed, another falls from a balcony, and many more are involved in a séance that results in similar depictions and aggressive confrontations. Sexual content includes infrequent sexual innuendo, an unwed pregnancy and an unmarried couple sleeping together. A girl is seen in underwear on a couple of occasions. A single strong sexual expletive is heard along with other infrequent scatological and religious terms. Drinks are served in a bar (a main character orders a non-alcoholic beverage, however some of the other customers may be underage).
