Fear is something that has been utilized, not always as form of entertainment value either, for centuries, upon centuries, upon centuries. One of the oldest fears in human civilization has manfiested itself, and long withstood as a Godfather-status subgenre, within the horror genre since it's inception, and it's none other than good old fashioned devil-worship. It's something that, with the religious upbringing that my parents decided to raise me with, I will always be fascinated in, although I may not necessarily tremble in fear. The Devil just so happens to be an interesting dude.
From The Exorcist to The Omen to The Last Exorcism, he's all the rage, and he probably always will be. A new horror film has been making the rounds, and is on it's way to it's release date, that I think looks pretty interesting. While it looks to be far from an original film, Radio Silence's new Rosemary's Baby inspired Satanic flick entitled Devil's Due looks to be a promising occult based film that has the potential to be a great addition to horror's long line of Antichrist based films. The film made the rounds last week when it's controversial poster (used in the motion poster below) was banned in South America.
Radio Silence, the team behind the final segment of V/H/S, are behind the Lindsay Devlin-penned flick with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett directing for the team.
Starring Allison Miller (Terra Nova) and Zack Gilford (Friday Night Lights), Devil's Due plot follows: "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.”
