Devil's Due (2014)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Derivative and mostly uninspired, Devil's Due adds little to either the found-footage or horror genres that it's content to mimic.

Critic Reviews for Devil's Due

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (8)

The movie's found-footage conceit never creates a proper atmosphere, something essential to any horror film but particularly one involving the occult.

Throw in an abandoned house in the neighborhood that is suddenly occupied, a vanishing obstetrician and a first communion ceremony that goes terribly wrong, and the chill factor quickly rises.

A disjointed and unconvincing movie that is also embarrassingly derivative of "Paranormal Activity."

Dredging up horror movie favorites like random nosebleeds, a traumatized priest and a mama-to-be with a yen for raw meat, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett direct with competence but a dispiriting lack of originality.

At least there's a credible premise in "Devil's Due," an otherwise feeble exercise in the found-footage form.

'Devil's Due' is pretty much a found-footage version of the classic 1968 Roman Polanski movie 'Rosemary's Baby.'

Audience Reviews for Devil's Due

Found Footage horror films nowadays feels overdone, derivative and pointless. Yet, studios still seem to make them. After the last two Paranormal Activity films, you could clearly see that the genre had overstayed its welcome. With Devil's Due you have a generic film that simply isn't scary and it fails to really grab your attention in terms of horror elements. The found footage genre is overdone, and with a film like this one, it's clear that there is nothing left to offer the genre. The cast are good, but it'[s a shame that the film's material doesn't gel together, and in turn becomes forgettable. Devil's Due is never scary; in fact it's silly in the way it tries to do so. You know exactly how this film will turn out. The scares are nonexistent, and the film's story just suffers from a lack of genuine thrills and good writing. If you want a great horror film, you won't find it here. This is a predictable affair, one that we've seen in far better found footage horror films. Devil's Due has the misfortune of coming too late in the game, and the result is a train wreck of a film, and it's unfortunate that the story is bad because the cast are quite good here. I think it's a shame that the film's story goes nowhere, and it never realizes its potential of being a good horror film. Maybe if they wouldn't have made a found footage style movie, and reworked the film then maybe this film would have been much better. However, it's just boring, uninteresting and it never is a worthwhile film to watch. Personally, I'm surprised that I was able to finish this, as the film lacked in originality and truly memorable, terrifying elements, which makes the horror genre so good.

A bargain basement knock off of Rosemary's Baby told in the style of Paranormal Activity's Greatest Hits. The most innovative thing about this movie is the demon baby marketing campaign; the story is otherwise predictable, boring, and not the least bit scary.
