'The Unborn'


A college student (Odette Yustman, "Cloverfield") finds out the hard way that she's a twin in this well-acted thriller from writer-director David S. Goyer ("Blade: Trinity").

Her exploration of haunting dreams she's been having yields the revelation that her twin brother died long ago. If the plot sounds familiar, it's given added heft here by the work of veteran co-stars Gary Oldman and Jane Alexander.

Idris Elba, who also was on spooky turf in "The Reaping," appears as well. *** (PG-13 and unrated versions: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
