Miller (who starred in the Matthew Perry sitcom ‘Go On’) and Gilford play Sam and Zach McCall, a pair of lovey dovey newleyweds who finds themselves expecting a child after a crazy party of a honeymoon in Mexico.
Sam soon feels something is wrong with the baby (or with herself) but puts it down to first-time-mom nerves. But when her husband Zach starts to suspect the worse from Sam’s frightening mood and bizarre actions, he sets up hidden cameras in their house to capture some answers.
When he reviews his honeymoon video, he discovers footage of unknown figures performing some kind of ritual on Sam. Seeking the help of the local priest, confirms that Sam is involved with some type of satanic possession.
While the film has a very interesting premise, the execution could have and should have been much more frightening. This is a horror after all, yet the film failed to take advantage of all the opportunities available to scare the audience. Instead the focus was more on fluffing up the characters with cute daily anecdotes that made the film feel more like a dull romance-drama rather than the horror it claims to be.
With some impressive visual effects, overall ‘Devil’s Due’ did not possess the quality scare factor like other films of its type, such as ‘Paranormal Activity’ or ‘[Rec]’ . Miller however, delivered a stand-out performance as the possessed Sam and was excellent to watch.
