Devil's Due: What You Need To Know

The horror jump-a-thon Devil’s Due comes to DVD and Blu-Ray next Monday (June 16th), here’s what you need to know about this supernatural thriller…

 

What’s The Plot?

Zach and Samantha have just got married and they’re off to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon, it all seems brilliant. Trouble is, when they arrive they make the mistake of meeting a fortune teller who tells them “they’ve been waiting for you..”, as fortune tellers sometimes do.

After the reading they get lost, but are rescued by a cab driver, who takes them to a bar where they proceed to enjoy themselves a little too much and pass out drunk. We then see them taken to an underground chamber where a strange ritual is performed, but the next thing the couple know is waking up in the hotel with no memory of how they got there.

Soon after, Samantha releases she’s pregnant, and, as you can tell from the title, it’s no ordinary child….

 

Who’s In It?

The cast is decidedly low-key, with Alison Miller (who led last year’s sci-fi series Terra Nova) and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights’ Matt Saracen) playing the aforementioned couple. The rest of the ensemble is populated by jobbing US TV actors, including Vanessa Ray of Pretty Little Liars and Damages fame.

 

Does It Deliver?

For horror fans, absolutely. This is straight down the line chiller, full of jumps, shocks and scares and one seriously powerful foetus. This won’t go down in history as a classic, but if you’re in the mood for some scares, then this is a very solid choice.

 


Devil’s Due will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (June 16th) in hmv stores all over the UK.
