Horror News Radio 42 – Devil’s Due

Devil’s Due  not only tries to bring on the apocalypse, the end of the world as we know it, but it also tries to kill off the entire found footage sub-genre. It is so god-awful, it has Thomas in fumes and Santos ranting and Doc nearly in tears, weeping for his beloved cinema-verite. Oh, the horror!

Directors  Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, two members of the group Radio Silence, bring their promising talent to the exorcism/Rosemary’s-Baby films. But instead of expanding on the promise they displayed in the final chapter of  VHS, “10/31/98,” they rely too heavily on the tricks found in that short stretched out to fill the 90 minutes of  Devil’s Due.

Co-hosts  Doc Rotten,  Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.,  Dave Dreher,    and  Thomas Mariani  rake  Devil’s Due  over the coals, tearing it apart frame by frame, sequence by sequence. Thankfully, Dave Dreher is here tonight to bring the Horror News of the Week and give the grue-crew some hope for better things:  Hannibal,  Ravenous  and  The Quiet Ones.
