‘Devil’s Due’ DVD Review

12 June 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Zach GilfordAllison Miller, Sam Anderson, Roger Payano, Vanessa Ray | Written by Lindsay Devlin | Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett

If this was the first found-footage horror you’d ever seen, then Devil’s Due would probably strike you as a fairly shocking tour de force. Unfortunately, it’s 2014 now and 78% of all mainstream horror films present themselves as found footage. Devil’s Due therefore has little to offer that the average horror fan hasn’t seen before and generally done quite a lot better.

We meet Zach (Zach Gilford) and Samantha (Allison Miller), a couple who marry at the beginning of the film despite him being in his early thirties and her looking like she’s about ready to move up to big school soon. He is also the kind of person that feels the need to video every moment of his life (who only exist in horror »

Blu-ray Review: Found Footage Fails to Save 'Devil’s Due,' 'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones'

22 May 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Flooding the market with the shaky cam, the growing use of found footage has had more impact on horror than any other genre. Sometimes it’s used to great effect. But more often than not, such films lack the craft needed to propel viewers into the nightmares. “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” and “Devil’s Due” are cases in point.

One fails to take advantage of the solid point-of-view foundation built up by its own franchise. The other only somewhat effectively melds the found-footage technique to a plot involving the birth of the Anti-Christ.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

The film switches locales from the suburbs (where all the other “Paranormal Activity” films have been set) to tell the tale of Jesse (Andrew Jacobs). He’s a young, Hispanic man who has been marked for demonic slavery by witches. But an »

Zach Gilford on 'Devil's Due,' Horror, and If That 'Friday Night Lights' Movie Is Ever Going to Happen

20 January 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Neither Dr. Spock nor "Pregnancy for Dummies" ever covered the hellish baby troubles Zach (Zach Gilford) and Samantha (Allison Miller) McCall experience in "Devil's Due." Shortly after returning from their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, Sam discovers she is unexpectedly pregnant. As Sam begins to display strange behaviour and bizarre symptoms, the newlyweds become convinced that something unholy is growing inside of her.

Currently filming "The Purge 2," Gilford jumped on the phone with Moviefone Canada to talk about demonic babies, found footage and his next projects.

Moviefone Canada: The horror genre has a passionate fanbase. Do you scare easily?

Zach Gilford: I'm very jumpy. I'm not scared of ghosts or murderers, but I'm very oblivious to things. If someone walks in the room and I didn't hear them, I'll jump and be like, "Ahhhh!" My wife makes fun of me all the time.

"Devil's Due" has been compared to "Rosemary's Baby. »

Devil's Due – review | Mark Kermode

What's truly shocking about this derivative yarn about a woman raising the antichrist is the number of films it steals ideas from

The team behind one of the more successful segments from the patchy horror portmanteau V/H/S direct this functional if overly derivative horror yarn about a young woman impregnated with Satan's baby. Through the now wearyingly well-worn video-diary/surveillance-footage format, we watch newlyweds Zach (Zach Gilford) and Samantha (Allison Miller) honeymooning in the Dominican Republic, where they become unwittingly involved in a diabolical ceremony before being sent home to America to nurture the antichrist.

While horror newbies may find the unfolding incubus antics moderately scary, others will be distracted by the frankly terrifying levels of recycling; the set-up from Rosemary's Baby (a crucifix prop from Polanski's film actually makes a cameo appearance); the demon babies of It's Alive, The Omen et al; the found footage of everything »

The Wolf Of Wall Street, Crystal Fairy, Devil's Due: this week's new films

17 January 2014 11:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Wolf Of Wall Street | Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus | Devil's Due | Tim's Vermeer | Oh Boy | The Night Of The Hunter

The Wolf Of Wall Street (18)

(Martin Scorsese, 2013, Us) Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler, John Bernthal, Matthew McConaughey. 180 mins

Perhaps Scorsese has more of a right than anyone to make a banking epic in the mould of a crime epic – and sure enough, this is Gordon Gekko, GoodFellas-style: a sprawling, seriocomic, voiceover-tracked rise-and-fall with a morally dubious hero. Excess is the name of the game here, to the point there's actually an excess of excess; endless choreographed tableaux of cash, drugs, cars, naked women, shouting men and celebrity cameos. These regular shots of energy keep the story buzzing, even as they bloat the running time, but Scorsese is aiming for greatness here, and there's no reining him in.

Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus (18)

(Sebastián Silva, 2013, Chi) Michael Cera, »

‘Devil’s Due’ Review: It Can’t Fix Found Footage, But It Is About Satan

17 January 2014 3:46 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If the proliferation of the found footage conceit in horror movies was ever in doubt, let January 2014 stand as proof. Not one but two found footage horror movies are currently in wide release across America. While it doesn’t solve every issue that plagues the vast majority of films in this particular sub-genre, Devil’s Due fixes enough of them while also managing to be a breezy, enjoyable film in its own right. The film opens with a quote from the Bible emphasizing a line about many antichrists coming during the end times. We then follow Zach McCall (Zach Gilford) as he breaks into his own house to see his fiancee Samantha (Allison Miller) on the night before their wedding. Zach does most of the filming which is explained away as a thing his dad did to document Zach’s childhood, a tradition that Zach wants to continue for his own child. The »

There’s nothing on Earth like a mother’s love—even if her baby is literally the spawn of Satan. Playing expectant mom Sam in Devil’S Due is Allison Miller, who last tangled with the supernatural in 2009’s live-action Blood: The Last Vampire. She’ll likely hit the horror crowd in a bigger way as she delves into her […] »

Devil's Due Behind-The-Scenes with Devil Baby Featurette

17 January 2014 1:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Starting today, fans can check out 20th Century Fox's new thriller Devil's Due in theaters, but earlier this week, several unsuspecting New Yorkers got the scare of a lifetime, thanks to an elaborate prank set up by the ad firm ThinkModo. The video, which currently has over 30 million views on YouTube, showed an unattended baby in the streets of New York City. When onlookers came to get a closer look at the infant, they got the shock of a lifetime, as this animatronic demon baby sprang to life, spewing projectile vomit and even giving "the bird" to some NYPD cops. Today, we have a behind-the-scenes video which showed some of the early tests of this baby's creation. Take a look at the video, then read on for more facts about this prank.

The campaign reportedly cost between $500,000 to $1 million, but this video has already amassed more hits than six of »

Devil’s Due Review

17 January 2014 11:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Devil’s Due? More like Devil’s Don’T! Nailed It!

Sorry folks, this is what happens when I start writing reviews at 3Am after a midnight premiere, bad jokes and salty attitudes, but I’m more disappointed in the fact that I wanted to love Devil’s Due so much more than I did. If you forced me to place a bet on the best January “found footage” release, between this and Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, I would have doubled down on Radio Silence’s satanic baby mama drama in a heartbeat – and I also would have been a very poor film critic. Visually stunning yet hollow at its core, Devil’s Due delivers true moments of excitement, but never a real, solid, horrifying scare – which is kind of crucial for horror films these days.

Review: Devil’S Due

17 January 2014 10:44 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

A brief caveat: I had high hopes for Devil’S Due. The feature length debut of Radio Silence, the filmmaking collective that literally brought the house down in V/H/S‘ final segment, was without a doubt something to look forward to. Giving them a modest budget, studio backing, and reign to make an R-rated satanic baby film sounded like a win-win for everyone. My expectations seem a bit foolish now, because on its own Devil’S Due is extremely underwhelming. It figuratively crawls through its runtime before turning what should have been an outrageous finale, into a rushed job that seems more interested in setting up a sequel than rewarding your patience.

Newlywed couple. Foreign locale. Lead male wants to film everything for posterity. You know the drill here, folks. Through personal recordings (found footage, Pov, what have you), we follow Zach and Samantha through nuptials to honeymoon, where »
