Devil's Due Review

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.
