Customer Review

on 1 February 2014
This has got to be one of the worst "horror" films ever made. It is shockingly derived of any thrills or tension and it borrows heavily from superior films, with a plot ripped straight from the inferior "Rosemary's Baby" and the filming style of "Paranormal Activity." Throw in some possession fodder drafted in from "The Exorcist" and you have the making of a blatant rip off.

The story centres on a young, good looking and recently married couple named Zach and Samantha (Zach Gilford and Alison Miller) who whilst on their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic encounter a sinister taxi driver who offers to take them to a "amazing bar" (basically the exact same set up as the Hostel series). Of course this underground club is run by malevolent satanist hicks who drug the couple and perform some stereotypical ritual on Samantha. The rest of the film is basically the couple learning that Samantha is pregnant and her increasingly strange decline into possesed nutjob. Could she be carrying the Antichrist? Do you care? (cue lots of scenes of possession, the main actress walking around in the dark, writing weird symbols on the floor, eating raw meat and attacking children and animals respectively)

What makes Devils Due such a terrible film is that it is neither scary nor intriguing. We've seen almost every scene a million times before in other films, but execued ten times better. From the creepy cab driver and underground black-market club (Hostel) to the evil child (The Omen) and the shaky found footage (The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity). The main characters descent into madness is also a completely second rate rehash of Rosemary's Baby. I'm surprised they didn't just call it that to be honest and market it as a remake.

In the last few years we've seen dozens and dozens of possession and evil child movies. When will Hollywood come up with something original? Eli Roth called this "very very scary." I can only wonder how much he was paid for those kind words.
