Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett direct this horror in which unexpected events surrounding a woman's pregnancy raise terrifying questions. Zach and Sam McCall (Zach Gilford and Stephanie Grote) are a young couple enjoying their life as newlyweds when they receive the news that Sam is pregnant. Though the pregnancy was unplanned, the couple decide to keep the baby and become excited as they imagine a future as parents. However, Sam's increasingly erratic behaviour is a source of concern. Strange visitations and encounters with the occult unsettle the couple and they begin to believe that the baby may somehow be at the root of their problems...

I don't like found footage, this film goes that extra step to make no sense. At least with a film like "Cloverfield" the found footage was 'found' and used as some instructional film. In this case the footage is being taken by various cameras and it makes no sense why we suddenly see events from a different camera.

For example, the lead guy is carrying a camera around to document his life. That makes sense. Suddenly we see his wife in a supermarket via the market's security camera. We see her eating raw meat straight from a packet. Why are we seeing this?

A cult has installed cameras throughout their house. Why are we seeing their footage? Who's 'found' it. There's three people out on a picnic, and guess what - they're also documenting things on a camera. Why? We don't know. When they discover the possessed wife eating the flesh of a fallen deer she kills them, all caught on camera.

It also makes no sense why she's eating this deer when she could get raw meat from the supermarket!

They took their camera on their holidays. They're lured to a party, and eventually this sect take them off to impregnate the wife with the anti-Christ. And the camera is still rolling. Why does the cult not check the camera? Who knows. And we don't get to see her impregnated anyway.

None of the film makes sense.

Zach (Zach Gilford) and Samantha (Allison Miller) are newlyweds who annoyingly film everything and they don't do it well. On their honeymoon to the islands, she becomes pregnant with the anti-Christ which proves to be an annoyance to her vegan lifestyle.

At one point when they weren't filming themselves, they used an overhead store camera to maintain the realism. It was really nice for a change to see something without a camera jerking about or a head being cut off. What was with the kid with a camera making a film in a dark hallway?

Carrying the dark lord around in your tummy makes Holy Communion a little more exciting than usual. Apparently Satan cannot be born in a normal manner and has to come into the world making a lot of noise with kitchen utensils.

The film picks up at about an hour. If you managed to make it that far you qualify for one punch on your hacker card, same as watching someone else's bad home movie about their little anti-Christ.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

This is a lacklustre example of the "found footage" genre of horror films.
Zach McCall and his wife Samantha are a nice as pie, photogenic, twenty-something, newly wed American couple. They film their new married life together, starting with a honeymoon on a Caribbean island. The honeymooners go to an islander who's a palm reader, an elderly lady who starts to give them some very creepy predictions, causing the couple to depart rapidly. They then stumble upon a strange, disturbing voodoo ritual and film that too, presumably to add some romance to their honeymoon vid.
Back home after the trip, the wife announces that she's pregnant. Her behaviour soon starts to change in very disturbing ways. She starts sleeping with her eyes wide open in an insane stare, and she attacks a motorist in a car park in a road rage incident, smashing the guy's car windows with her bare hands...
This is an unfortunate and disjointed example of a found footage chiller. The hand held camera action is fidgety and the shot selection is very badly misjudged. When the husband's filming, he usually manages to focus on one half of a person's face, or points at a person's feet when they're talking to him, you get the idea. It becomes really quite annoying after about fifteen minutes. The script is anodyne and the pace of the movie is soporific. To break the monotony of the amateurish home video technique, the viewer even gets to spend several minutes watching the pregnant mum scoffing some food in a shopping aisle, from the viewpoint of the store's CCTV. It's hopelessly incongruous as a piece of film work. There's no film score. Tension, chills and thrills are key ingredients in a horror flick, but they weren't added to the shopping list for the makers of this film.

I am pretty easily pleased with movies and can even enjoy budget movies that other reviewers hate. The trailer shows the best bits of the film. The rest of the time, I was just waiting for something to happen, was really quite bored watching this. An hour into the film and barely anything has happened, I was watching the clock constantly waiting for it to finish.

YAWN! Remember that movie with the irritating, 28 year old college kid types who film their every move even when something awful is "really" happening? No, not that one. Or that one. Yeah, that's the one. Well, if you liked that and wanted to see a really poorly directed, produced, written remake of it which has all the thrills, tension, wit and charm of an old dog shivering in the rain then see this.

Actually, scratch that. I would fetch an old soggy dog a blanket and a bone. I'd leave this shivering in the 50p, straight to video bargain bin it belongs.
