After being released to theaters earlier this year, we’ll see a Devil’s Due Blu-ray and DVD release from Fox Home Entertainment in April. Unlike many of the bare bones horror releases we see, this one actually has quite a few special features and we’ve included the entire list below.
“After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but, as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.”
Devil’s Due was directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, written by Lindsay Devlin, and stars Allison Miller and Zach Gilford. According to Blu-ray.com, Fox will release the movie to Blu-ray and DVD on April 29th. »

As usual: what was once the domain of indie filmmakers with more creativity than cash has become dominated by the major distributors. We're talking about "found footage horror," a storytelling gimmick that was resurrected by The Blair Witch Project several years ago, and has since become a sort of "playground" for indie filmmakers all over the world. (Check out [Rec] or Troll Hunter to see what I mean.) But as soon as Paramount hit the super jackpot with their initial Paranormal Activity acquisition, the writing was on the wall: these movies are super cheap to make and even when they bomb they make good money. (Cue a laundry list of movies like Apollo 18, The Devil Inside, and four Paranormal Activity sequels - so far.)
But there is a silver lining to all this: sometimes a "big studio" wants to make a "small horror movie" and they actually do it by hiring the right people. »

One of the highlights of 2012's horror anthology "V/H/S" was a segment called "10/31/98." It was the final section in the film, and it played like gangbusters -- imagining an R-rated version of Disneyland's The Haunted Mansion, with all the effects turned up to 11. This section was the work of a filmmaking collective known as Radio Silence, a team of four very talented dudes (Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Chad Villella, and Justin Martinez), singularly dedicated to scaring you silly. This weekend, their first feature-length film, the demonic found-footage romp "Devil's Due," impregnates theaters nationwide. And we've got an excusive clip designed to make your skin crawl.
The half-minute-long clip doesn't give much in the way of context, but it is pretty scary; thirty-eight seconds of night vision-y creeping, punctuated by a woman screaming very loudly at the camera. It's like the final sequence of "Zero Dark Thirty" punctuated by »

Arriving in theaters on the 17th is Devil's Due, a story of satanic impregnation through the lens of a newlywed's video diary. The recently betrothed Samantha (Allison Miller) and Zach (Zach Gilford) come home from their honeymoon unable to remember one of the nights of their trip. When Samantha turns out to be unexpectedly pregnant the couple's life rapidly descends into a new, dark and sinister direction. The film marks the first feature effort from the creative team Radio Silence, who's segment “10/31/98” stood out as a fan favorite in the 2012 horror anthology V/H/S. Last month Collider was invited to the 20th Century Fox lot to get a first look at what Devil's Due has to offer. Filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez and Chad Villella were joined by Fox's Executive Vice President of Production Steve Asbell to introduce select clips from the film and to answer questions »
