Odette Yustman in The Unborn

If you enjoy and follow genre films then you’ve most likely seen David Goyer’s work. He wrote all three Blade films, Dark City, Batman Begins, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Death Warrant, and many more. He’s also dabbled in directing with Blade: Trinity, The Invisible, and the in-development (and unnecessary) X-Men Origins: Magneto. His newest film, The Unborn, is about a girl who’s haunted by the ghost of someone who was never born. The first half of the trailer below looks to be generic and bland, but keep watching… it gets pretty goddamn creepy and crazy. (Don’t let the fact that it’s produced by Michael Bay turn you off.)

See what I mean? The Unborn starts off like a traditional ghost story, but then Goyer throws in wicked dreams, raincoat-wearing killers with butcher knives, evil children, mask-wearing cats, contorted crawlers, a hot chick in white undies, and Gary Oldman! Odette Yustman stars as the hottie who digested her twin in utero, thus preventing his birth into the world… which to me justifies his anger just a little bit. Find out if Goyer’s kitchen sink approach works when The Unborn opens on January 9th, 2009.
