Had Devil's Due been shot traditionally, it probably would be pretty good.
Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first.
Okay, maybe a “found footage” riff on the Rosemary’s Baby formula wasn’t such a good idea.
The movie is directed by Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin of the collective Radio Silence. The four guys, including Justin Martinez and Chad Villella, provided one of the most memorable chapters in the horror anthology V/H/S. Devil’s Due marks their feature film debut and Gillett and Bettinelli-Olpin jumped on the phone to discuss satanic pregnancies and putting a new twist on the found footage genre.
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.
Not since Jason took Manhattan has such panic and horror gripped the citizens of the Big Apple!
I'm not a Catholic, but I'm fairly sure that this is not supposed to happen during communion. Enjoy this exclusive clip from Devil's Due, which opens in theaters on January 17th.
The Devil's Due website promises an 'exclusive offering' if you follow the Devil's orders and show your allegiance to him.
Well, 2013 has come and gone and it was a pretty darned good year for horror, both at the theaters, as well as on TV with more horror television programming than ever and the exponential growth of VOD releases. This year may have just started, but 2014 doesn't show any signs of slowing down in terms of genre offerings.
