Devil's Due (2014)
Devil's Due Plot Synopsis:After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy.

Devil's Due (2014) Review
Devil’s Due is not a good horror movie and the story-line could of been better. It is about a newlywed couple Samantha McCall (Allison Miller - There’s Always Woodstock, Blood: The Last Vampire, Cold Case) and Zach McCall (Zach Gilford - The Purge 2, The Last Stand, In Our Nature) who went to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic for their honeymoon and came back home with an nonreturnable present. Zach and Samantha are surprised and thrilled that they are having a baby although the pregnancy seems to occur before the marriage and Samantha was on birth control pills. Zach soon starts to discover strange behaviors from his wife while video taping her and soon suspects that something odd/wrong is happening with her pregnancy. Some of the strange behaviors was when Samantha went in to the supermarket and started to eat raw meat although she is a vegetarian. She seems to have superhero powers when she smashed a car’s window that bumped her car. Don’t forget the strange disfigured shape her stomach gets/have when she sleeps as though the baby is about to rip through her stomach and all the odd movements that is not normal.
Director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett executed a bad story line really well. Devil’s Due does not seem original and it lacks scare factors one hundred percent. Devil’s Due contains bad language, violence, suspense and little gore.
I do like their wedding ceremony and the way Zach climbed up the pipe on the night before their wedding to tell Samantha that he wants to videotape their marriage because he wants it for memories. That was so sweet. The ending of the movie rocks because it was so unpredictable and a major surprise to see who caused everything to happen.
I was really hyped to see Devil’s Due after watching the horror trailer and was truly disappointed after seeing it. It is not the awesomely great devil baby movie I thought it would be. I would recommend for viewers to wait for this movie to come out on DVD, that is if you’re interested in watching it. I don’t think it will make it far in the movie theater so therefore it should be provided very soon on DVD. I gave this movie a five because it was not awfully bad but it was not good either. Will I see it again? Most likely not.
