This baby should have been aborted

So another found footage movie after watching the horribly done piece of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones Hollywood keeps on giving us these entries and people are still swallowing, so why change a winning formula they thought. Here is Devil's Due.

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.

Devil's Due

Where to begin with this.. Welcome to this year's biggest snooze fest. This movie really has nothing to offer the whole found footage film category. You can best put this with Chernobyl Diaries but than with a baby. I really loved the marketing stunts surrounding this movie but this really was a letdown. After just 10 minutes you feel where film the wants to go to, and it goes exactly that way. It is this whole I have seen this before attitude that really kills it for me. In no possible way did the creators of this movie try out new things or making at least a plot twist. It are these kind of things that keep more and more away from found footage movies.

Devil's Due

Well one thing that wasn't as bad as the movie was the acting which was pretty decent. At least some of the interaction of the 2 main characters can at least carry the movie a bit further. But this was one of those movies I almost walked away from in mid-session. The lack of anything basically gives you the feeling that you are watching a long giving birth movie. Nothing happens and nothing really makes you jump. I am not a found footage lover but this is really goes down on the list of movies you should NOT watch. As long as people keep paying for these kind of movies they will be kept alive. Let's just hope they keep this one without a sequel.

Devil's Due

Move along people, nothing to see here. That completely sums this piece of cinema up. How they could push this which such big marketing budget is a mystery to me. The whole movie is just lacking any sense of buildup, any scares, and well any common sense. It is a pity because it could have ended up in a good way maybe like Evil Dead Trap at least that one had a real demon baby fetus.
