Sweet & Scary are Side by Side in new “DEVIL’S DUE” TrailerMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
There’s a lot of fun to be had in the back-and-forth rhythm of audibly sweet sentiment and the visual perversion of such that plays out in the new trailer for upcoming found footage film DEVIL’S DUE. “This where me and your mom got married,” an expectant father tells his unborn child as a priest bleeds generously from the nose, vows are exchanged over unholy ritual and whether or not Radio Silence’s POV spin on the birth of the antichrist is indeed something to fear, it’s hard to not generate some goodwill with this latest clip.
In DEVIL’S DUE, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy after a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, . 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.
RADIO SILENCE’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (V/H/S’ very fun final segment “10-31-98”) direct. DEVIL’S DUE is out January 17th.
