Reborn (2018) Review

“A stillborn baby girl is abducted by a morgue attendant and brought back to life by electrokinetic power. On her sixteenth birthday she escapes captivity and sets out to find her birth mother leaving a trail of destruction behind her.”

The Last Horror Movie director Julian Richards has been taking a break from calling the shots on set since 2012’s SHIVER but fear not, he’s not thrown the towel in and called it a day, in fact he’s well; and truly back with not one, but two new directorial efforts doing the rounds. Our guest reviewer Phil Newton gave Richards’ other recent release DADDY’s GIRL a big thumbs up and here I am giving his REBORN an equally enthusiastic response.

There’s nothing new to see with REBORN, no surprises at all, but it remains a fun and undemanding watch for exactly that reason.  It’s like catching up with an old friend, full of familiar beats that are warmly embraced. This is partly due to a cast that includes old faces Barbara Crampton (RE-ANIMATOR), Michael Paré (STREETS OF FIRE) and Rae Dawn Chong (COMMANDO) and also because the film has elements that nod to some genre favourites. From inventive Omen-style death sequences, Frankenstein-style rebirth to lifting elements of CARRIE (yep, even that film’s classic jump scare), THE FURY and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD, REBORN is the perfect for a fast, fun and undemanding Saturday night’s viewing.
