Rosemary's Found Footage: 'The Devil's Due' Trailer

The-Devils-Due-550x322.jpg

Hey let’s have a multiple choice pop quiz:

What do you get when you cross Rosemary’s Baby with Paranormal Activity?

A. Inexplicable idiots who refuse to set down their camera.
B. Nothing remotely scary.
C. A movie TK should review.
D. All of the above.

I assume that everyone in the class got that one right?

Here’s the trailer for The Devil’s Due. But I warn you, it’s bad bad, not entertaining SyFy original bad, and certainly no Big Ass Spider:

The obligatory plot summary:

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.

*Eye roll*. The problem with these found footage movies, I mean among all of the other problems that I’ve written about before, is that for the most part they don’t just share a gimmick, it’s that they’re really the exact same movie built from precisely the same template. I am a staunch defender of the technique, in that I think there are a multitude of stories that could be told with found footage as a creative addition to the story, just like how comic books don’t have to be about superheroes. But seeing the fiftieth re-release of the same damned story with a slight tweak is just getting tiresome.

Oh! I actually wrote this post an hour ago and just realized now that the title is a pun. Get it? Because she’s pregnant, and babies are due? Ha!

I fucking hate puns.

    Matthew Saracen you get away from that movie right now. Coach Taylor is giving you such a disappointment glare right now.

  • bastich

    Just once, I want to see a "found footage" horror movie where someone uses the camera to beat the crap out of the monster.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T MARRY JULIE! You should have known better, Saracen.

  • Michelle

    ZACH GILFORD. GET A NEW AGENT.

  • ViciousTrollop

    My friend is pregnant right now and she can get pretty moody. That window breaking scene didn't seem too far off the actual emotions of a pregnant woman.

  • emilya

    my first reaction to the header was "did saracen get married AGAIN...and why wasn't it to me?" why can't he pick better movies? all i want is for all these fnl peoples to continue to work and be in great projects...why isn't that happening?

  • TK

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAYour mother's a whore.

  • dirities

    The Dirties is a great movie that is in this style of found footage, that takes a more indepth look on how bad bullying can be

  • Fredo

    Why is it the Devil can't pick anything but skinny, pale white bitches? What he got against a strong sistah?!

  • rio

    let's face it, white people proved to be the closest thing to satan to come by, so I assume he feels we relate more? You do wanna have shit in common with your baby mama.

  • Dragonchild

    Strong sistah would probably throw a good punch at Satan's junk. But you know, THAT would be something I'd pay money to see.

  • TK

    Because he's racist? I mean, he is the Devil.

  • Not Patterson Hood

    "And George Wallace died back in '98 and he's in hell now, but not because he's a racist ... Fortunately for him, the Devil is also a Southerner."

  • Naye

    I stopped watching as soon as "At Last" came one. Sure sign of something derivative and mind-numbing.

  • Holli Downs

    Upon reading the title: "Wait, that episode of TNG?" No, not that.

  • VonnegutSlut

  • pomeroy

    Oh, Saracen.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Aw, maaaaaan, I thought this post was going to be more photos from Zach Gilford's hipster wedding. And I was like, "where Landry at?"

  • I don't have the background to make Friday Nights Lights jokes, but I feel totally remiss that I forgot to make Holland Manners jokes. Damnit! My initial reaction to the trailer was "Yet, I just can't bring myself to care". Poor Holland.

  • Bothari

    That was my second thought! (Right after SARACEN!) If your wife gets pregnant and wiggy, do NOT take her to Wolfram & Hart. C'mon, people!

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Are they in a giant plastic bubble?
