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.
Whether you liked 'V/H/S' or not, it's hard to dispute that the final segment in that anthology "10/31/98" directed by the filmmaking troupe known as Radio Silence was by far the most effective and scary short film of the bunch. And now, 2/4th's of those directors, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett have encored with their unique style of "found footage" horror with the upcoming 'Devil's Due.'
I’ve found V/H/S to be a divisive movie among my friends.
You know it's a good mail day when a huge box is delivered to your door containing a used VCR (but no cables, really?) and an unmarked VHS tape.
