The Unborn is a 1991 American horror film produced by Roger Corman and directed by Rodman Flender. A couple cannot have children so they try in-vitro fertilization, but then strange things start happening to the mother while she is pregnant.


The story centers around a married couple. The infertile wife Virginia (Brooke Adams) and her husband Brad Marshall (Jeff Hayenga) decide to join an experimental in-vitro fertilization program developed by Dr. Richard Meyerling (James Karen). The trial succeeds, but during the pregnancy Virginia finds that something unusual is happening to the fetus. A further investigation shows that she is part of an experiment conducted by an insane doctor.



Writer John D Brancato says the film was inspired by "killer mutant baby stories like It's Alive".[1]


The film was followed by a sequel, The Unborn 2.
