* and 1/2 out of ****
Filmed partly in Louisiana, Devil's Due is a found footage horror knock off of Rosemary's Baby (1968). It's not very good, mostly dull, predictable and hardly scary.
The movie opens with a newlywed couple, Samantha and Zach (Allison Miller and Zach Gilford), on their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic. They are lured to a wild party, drugged then unknowingly become the key ingredient in an occult ritual. Once back in the states, Sam becomes pregnant, but something doesn't seem right with the fetus.
Before long, Sam develops some odd behavior, like eating raw meat in the supermarket or having a violent mood swing where she smashes out the windows of an SUV.
Many of the "scares" are unintentionally funny. The apex of comedy here is when Sam dispatches a trio of teens who come upon her as she is mutilating livestock.
It's a lousy film, but the acting isn't bad. Actress Allison Miller is very girl-next-door appealing and it would be nice to see her in a smart comedy.
Now, it's hard to make an effective demon possession thriller, but Devil's Due doesn't even come close.
