Liberal Propaganda

Too scary for the littles. Main character cheats with husband and conceives Devil’s baby. As a devote Christian this was incredibly insensitive and sacrilegious. it also brought back memories of my infidelity ☹️ when me and hubby went on our honeymoon to peru… awkward! We watched this with Jonah (12) and Mary (6) and honestly i think Mary handled it better. Jonah was very scared and was sent to his room to read the holy book. Needless to say this was not a movie for families. and Jonah feels emasculated. watch out for the naked woman scene Jonah got a little too excited…

Too much unnecessary language

This movie contains several adult themes. Language includes 15 occurrences of s#!t and 35 f#!k. She ends up pregnant after throwing back several shots and ends up hung-over. While there is no outright adult content, we do see the man naked in bed barely covered by a sheet. As for violence, the woman attacks several people in this movie. She smashes in the windows of a car after he accidentally backs into him, fights of her husband multiple times, and kills another woman. Finally, there are some scenes not for the squeamish. They show an amnioscope, there are several strong nosebleeds, and you see the woman eating raw meat in the grocery store.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (5 ):

As soon as DEVIL'S DUE begins with the typical, twitchy, flickering credit sequence, it reveals that it has not a single fresh idea, and indeed it copies virtually every moment from better movies. If it hadn't been a "found footage" movie, it might have generated some sympathy with the likeable characters, but instead it burns a great deal of energy trying to justify the characters holding a camera at every waking moment. But even then, Devil's Time has to contend with the queen mother of all "demon baby" movies, Rosemary's Baby, and it fails miserably. The Zach character is genuinely excited about the baby, but he's not very smart and he misses all the clues. If he had been a little more wary, it could have created some tension. And Samantha is more or less a victim, unable to communicate effectively about what's going on and whether or not she's frightened. As it stands, it feels like hardly anything actually does happen. This is one for the diaper pail.
