Devil's Due

Image for Devil's Due

A Satanic cult observes Sam McCall (Allison Miller) during her pregnancy, and her husband Zach (Zach Gilford) begins to suspect there's something unnatural about their baby.


This is Rosemary’s Baby redone in the style of Paranormal Activity, alternating gushy home movies shot by the clueless parents-to-be with sinister surveillance footage from the cult who have rigged up spy-cams around their house. Assembled by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who made one of the stronger episodes of V/H/S, this feels like one of the weaker episodes of V/H/S spun out to feature length, with tipped-in scares at regular intervals and too little creeping dread. It’s by no means the worst found footage horror around, but it’s an entry-level horror film, likely to terrify only the inexperienced.

An ordinary, forgettable horror film. Even the Devil deserves more than this.
