The Unborn (15)

The Unbelievable would be closer.

This starts out with a half-decent idea: a young woman (Odette Yustman) discovers that her umbilical cord strangled her twin brother in the womb, at the same time as messages from The Beyond are coming through: rustling behind the mirror, weird staring kids, a change in her eye colour. "Are you familiar with genetic mosaicism?" asks her ophthalmologist, pointlessly. The demonic possession plot thereafter breaks down in a tasteless swamp of Nazi experiments on twins, dogs with inverted heads and an exorcism led by rabbi Gary Oldman. Oy vey! The kosher paranormal: a trend in the offing?
