See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 14 jump scares in The Unborn, which has a jump scare rating of 3.5.

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.

Synopsis: A young woman finds herself haunted by the spirit of her twin brother who died in the womb.
