Following an amusing series of YouTube pranks-gone-wrong clips and their exhaustingly bonkers contribution to the first V/H/S, horror collective Radio Silence have finally completed their first solo feature. Devil's Due is both the title and the plot, and nothing can prepare you for the arrival... of this trailer.
As you'll have just seen, the film looks to continue the Radio Silence trademark of found footage mixed with surprisingly big-ish FX. Beginning with a wedding, we then have the honeymoon and, rather soon afterwards, the pregnancy announcement. Must have gone well. Cue deep joy, but also our couple's (Allison Miller and Zach Gilford) house being watched by raincoated loons, symbols scrawled by members of an ancient cult of religious dissenters, super-strength, undulating stomach and violent telekinesis. The title, obviously enough, has a double meaning: the devil is quite literally due, and will take what's his.
Radio Silence are Matt Bettenelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez and Chad Villella, and a feature has been on the cards for some time for them. They told Empire earlier this year, however, that the reports of their involvement with "found footage Frankenstein" project The Reawakening had no basis in reality, making Devil's Due, finally, their full-length debut. It's currently in post-production and is out in time for all your Valentine's dates on February 14.
