“Devil’s Due”

MOVIE ONE STAR

Rated R
1 hour 30 minutes
Zach Gilford, Allison Miller

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – When a pregnant newlywed suspect’s she’s carrying the devil’s offspring, thoughts of “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Omen” immediately comes to mind.

Not that “Devil’s Due” is anywhere near those demonic classics. In fact, the devil got exactly what he deserved with this cheesy chiller that should have been called “Samantha’s Baby”.

The moral of the movie is simply that newlyweds should always avoid going to breeding grounds for devil’s worshippers disguised as honeymoon destinations.

Back home, Samantha’s condition literally makes her Priest get sick which should be adequate warning for the rest of us.

There’s not much difference between “Devil’s Due” and the glut of “Paranormal Activity” thrillers, continuing the obnoxious fad of the shaky, hand held camera, which can give you a headache and an upset stomach all at the same time.

It’s not surprising that Samantha’s beleaguered husband looks so depressed. Just imagine what shape you’ll be in after 90 horrific minutes of “Devil’s Due”. It’s a positively crummy movie that rates no higher than one star.

Just think, with the movie year barely one month old, we could already have the worst movie of 2014.
