The derivative shock-schlock wagon continues to roll on with the dull and unimaginative frightfest Devil's Due, a monotonous hybrid of Rosemary's Baby and Paranormal Activity slammed together in ugly unison.

Enduring the non-thrills of Devil's Due makes one thing clear: "Found footage" movies have passed their sell-by date.
September 6, 2017
Tiresomely and implausibly shot entirely as if found footage, this female-written horror is Rosemary's Baby for the Paranormal Activity generation.
March 16, 2017
Devil's Due is the latest entry in the found footage horror genre, and while it does have its fair amount of creative visual effects, the thrills are hardly thrilling in this paint by numbers occult chiller.
March 28, 2016
For the most part, Devil's Due unfolds more like a scripted reality series than a horrifying tale.
January 8, 2016
Devil's Due, the latest from the filmmaking team known as Radio Silence, is a perfectly serviceable horror movie with some rather neat mythology that unfortunately gets lost in the trappings of its own storytelling format.

'Devil's Due' is pretty much a found-footage version of the classic 1968 Roman Polanski movie 'Rosemary's Baby.'
February 10, 2014
A cheap rip-off of "Rosemary's Baby" has little in the way of chills.

A by-the-blueprint Prenatal Activity stalking a boring white couple as Satan's spawn gestates in her womb. But it's the ubiquity of cameras that seems most infernal--is there anywhere a lens won't follow? Forget hell--it's more like eternal HAL.

When told that space would be tight this week I asked if I could review Devil's Due by simply saying, 'Trust me, folks, this thing sucks a moose.'

Distressingly locates evil in ethnicity: A scene in which the wife marvels at the lovely 'whiteness' of her nude husband sleeping among snowy sheets seems more troubling than cute after the couple falls victim to dusky satanists in the Dominican Republic.

"Due" Should Never Have Been Found
January 23, 2014
It's certainly not the worst of the found-footage subgenre, but it's a far cry from its Sixties- and Seventies-era cinematic inspirations.
January 23, 2014
The movie's found-footage conceit never creates a proper atmosphere, something essential to any horror film but particularly one involving the occult.
January 21, 2014
The camera-eye view is treated more as an obstacle to be overcome than a tool for storytelling, raising the question of why not just scrap it altogether.
January 21, 2014
As more and more films use this conceit, the premise of someone filming at all salient moments becomes more and more strained, until the device itself becomes not just derivative, but positively cumbersome.

The Devil may have all the best tunes, but this really is the worst sort of cinematic karaoke.
January 19, 2014
A disjointed and unconvincing movie that is also embarrassingly derivative of "Paranormal Activity."
January 19, 2014
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.

While horror newbies may find the unfolding incubus antics moderately scary, others will be distracted by the frankly terrifying levels of recycling ...
