MPAA Rating: PG-13

Jump Scares: 14 (3 major, 11 minor)
Jump Scare Rating: The Unborn is fairly heavy on jump scares although most are telegraphed. There is some attempts to create suspense prior to several of the jump scares. The bathroom scene about quarter of an hour into the movie is a good example of this with about 90 seconds of build up culminating in a well executed scare.
