Found footage, on a no-budget porno set, and the no-name nobody (aka the "lucky bastard") who gets to bed the sexy starlet is, of course, seriously unhinged and just about to explode in a tornado of impotent fury.

As you can probably tell from the trailers (or even the film's title), Devil's Due is a "haunted pregnancy" horror story, and unfortunately that makes a generally tight little thriller feel a bit more predictable than a "pure" indie film might.

Joe Dante Presents Trail of Blood, and let's just say the man has had his name on much better movies than this one.

Not many vampire stories manage to revolve around WWI battlefield atrocities and a modern-day story about bank robbers who hole up in a secret hotel in which everyone assumes an ominous nickname... with a bunch of romantic entanglements, double-crosses, and gruesome murders tossed in to keep things weird.

Clearly inspired by low-key indie horror films, Ritual has some decent components in its corner, but its meandering plot, confused narrative structure, and frequently familiar story trappings prevent the "decent components" from gaining much of a foothold.
