A TV show producer is given permission to follow a police
detective as he investigates a series of bizarre deaths of
women. In a nightclub, they witness the collapse and death
of a woman whose abdomen suddenly distends. Several of the
victims had talked about witnessing their own death before
it happened. The pair eventually discover that all the victims
had visited a website known as the "White Room". When the
woman producer visits the site herself, out of curiosity,
she is suddenly thrown into a fifteen day countdown to her
own death. Drawn to an apartment, she is plagued by visions

have to say that, given Tartan Extreme's track record of generally
high quality horror releases from East Asia, I'm disappointed
with Unborn But Forgotten. As the press release suggests,
there are indeed nods to The

removed from the usual high standard.
