A new international one-sheet for Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s found-footage horror flick Devil’s Due is here and it is without a doubt the most disturbing poster of the year. Hats off to the folks behind this design as it must have taken some serious balls to conjure up such a shocking piece of art for the film. There’s a reason why this is an international poster and that’s because not a whole lot of countries are willing to distribute a piece of art that’s sure to upset a few folks. Either way, it’s pretty damn cool and certainly one of the more memorable posters we’ve seen in quite some time.
As far as Devil’s Due goes, it looks pretty good… for a found-footage flick. At this point they are getting gimmicky, but there’s no denying the amount of talent the filmmakers have for this genre and so far it looks like a pretty wicked cross between The Omen and Rosemary’s Baby which is certainly not a bad thing. Watch the trailer here in case you missed it.
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.
Starring Allison Miller and Zach Gilford, Devil’s Due is set to terrify theaters everywhere on January 17, 2014. Take a look at the poster below!

Serious balls? It is my opinion that the designer of this poster has three sets of testicles.
Lol! Fair enough. You’re probably right about that!
If they dared put that one-sheet in US cinemas, THAT would be serious balls, or three sets of testicles, or whatever enlarged genital metaphor you choose. People here would flip their shit so fast, it’d be changed within two days.
First of all, it’s nice to see a comment from you, man! Secondly, you’re absolutely right on that. People would lose their minds over here which is exactly why I’d love to see it make its way into the States. It would generate buzz, that’s for sure!
To quote the Cool James who Ladies Love, “Don’t call it a comeback! I’ve been here for years.” Yeah, been away from WordPress a bit, but I’ve always kept current with your blog, brother.
Glad to hear it man, hope to see you around more often!
The posters are great, but … I saw the trailer and honestly, it’s not very promising. After Paranormal Activity, I’m just very skeptical towards those shaky ‘home video’ type of horror movies. Only REC was able to do a good job using the ‘caught on tape’ or ‘found footage’ idea for a horror movie. I’d probably wait for your review before watching it.
Yea, it looks better then a lot of the found-footage flicks that are coming out, but you’re right it’s just becoming a gimmick now. REC is without a doubt the best found-footage film I’ve seen. It’s so good!
The one thing the found-footage approach always had going for it was an inherent ability to mold an effective, moreover immersive and increasingly tense atmosphere – something that’s gone out the window given the gimmick’s eye-rolling overuse. Even still, marketing like this gets me excited more often than not, so I’ll be (reluctantly) checking this one out. Or not.
Haha, yea I’m with you there. I’m absolutely going to check it out, but I’m not setting the bar too high. The major problem with found-footage is that there are a LOT of rules for it to work like it’s meant to, but filmmakers always ignore them and it more often than not ruins the whole thing for me.
Too much CGI getting in the way of these. ” found film ” movies. It makes it seem like the so called ” footage” was edited and takes away the enjoyability. REC had all the flavored that made it seem so real, action packed and the best found footage movie up to date.
I agree, none have done it better than REC, what a flick that is!
