Trailer: “DEVIL’S DUE”, The Satanic First Feature from “V/H/S” filmmakers Radio Silence
I’ll never experience the joy of pregnancy, but I’m sure at some point all expectant mothers feel as if they’re harboring the antichrist within, huh? Such is the reason we continue to tell these stories of the fear of oncoming motherhood and unleashing something awful unto the world. The latest spin on “what the hell is growing inside me?” comes from Radio Silence, the collective of gentleman who brought the house down in the final installment of V/H/S, “10/31/98”. It’s entitled DEVIL’S DUE.
In DEVIL’S DUE, directed by Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, 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.
Rituals, symbols, found footage and unnatural movement in a pregnant belly abound. DEVIL’S DUE is out January 17, 2014. [Yahoo!]
