” …the most that can be said about The Unborn is that it is genuinely fun. While the more sloppy moments do take away from the experience, I found myself smiling and actually taken back by some of the more spooky moments. This is clearly a movie with a vision and a team that cared about making it, but somewhere some wires got crossed in the tone.” Horror Buzz

“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
