Now I was just sitting here with the TV on, reading a book and a commercial for this came on. I proceeded to place my book down and take in what I could.
Something about evil spirits taking shit over and walking like a mixture of the girl from the Exorcist and those Nobody creatures from the first Devil May Cry. So the first thought that ran through my mind was, "WTF IS THIS SHIT!?"
Now, I'm not one to judge a movie solely on trailers and commercials but what the hell?! Its as if they were trying to make this a cult film, just like the Exorcist. I'll let you all in on a secret... The Exorcist scares the fuck out of me, always has always will. Because I first saw it as a child of the age of 7. I don't suggest you let a 7 year old watch this kind of movie. It scars them for life.
I don't scare easily. Not at all. But having seen such a graphic possession movie at a young age has made it hard for me to watch anything about possession. That's right, people. I had a hard time walking into a theater to watch the Exorcism of Emily Rose. Because I knew I may get scared. So scared in fact I wouldn't feel it until I was alone just before bed. But thank goodness common sense made me see that that movie was terrible.
I actually like movies that mentally mess with you like that. The ones who give you the imagery just before sleep. But possession turns me into a child. One that must sleep with the lights on and have something living in my room before I feel any sort of calm.
Back to The Unborn... Dun dun dunnnn. Produced by Micheal Bay. Directed by David S. Goyer, he also wrote it. You probably heard his name with the Dark Knight and shit like that. I WILL NOT BE FOOLED INTO BELIEVING THIS WILL BE GOOD! So screw your cornhole Mister Goyer. Fuck you and trying to scare the shit out of me and 10 year old children.
And the only reason for me following this movie is because my release date is the 9th.
Will I see it? Maybe. But I know I will be shaken by this movie. Only because possession scares the fuck out of me. I'm a wimp.
