Plot:
Tiffany (Manni L. Perez) is a twenty-five-year-old security guard who rushes to work to discuss a shocking discovery with her boyfriend — she is pregnant.

Upon arrival at the factory scheduled for demolition, Tiffany starts a night shift along with her colleague, Joey (Chris Bellant), who is secretly in love with her.

Several bizarre occurrences unfold as the two security guards must come to terms with reality while a mysterious evil entity has other plans for them both.

It soon becomes the responsibility of Tiffany alone to confront the mysterious attacker and save Joey, herself, and her unborn child…

Reviews:
“In a slow thought-out manner, the plot drags from a suspenseful thriller to more of a morbid fixation on the “unborn.” […] The ending of this one made me shake my head. You will have to hold onto your seat and grit your teeth to get through it and you’ll see the twisted play of the concept of being “unborn.” Irish Film Critic

“The biggest issue I had with The Unborn is, while we get an idea of what is going on, a lot of the how and why is very vague. A bit more detail would have been helpful. Granted it could also have done with a better, and more original, ending. But overall The Unborn is a creepy and effective way to pass seventy minutes.” Voices from the Balcony
