Devil's Due - Clip No. 1
One of the highlights of 2012's horror anthology "V/H/S" was a segment called "10/31/98." It was the final section in the film, and it played like gangbusters -- imagining an R-rated version of Disneyland's The Haunted Mansion, with all the effects turned up to 11. This section was the work of a filmmaking collective known as Radio Silence, a team of four very talented dudes (Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Chad Villella, and Justin Martinez), singularly dedicated to scaring you silly. This weekend, their first feature-length film, the demonic found-footage romp "Devil's Due," impregnates theaters nationwide. And we've got an excusive clip designed to make your skin crawl.

The half-minute-long clip doesn't give much in the way of context, but it is pretty scary; thirty-eight seconds of night vision-y creeping, punctuated by a woman screaming very loudly at the camera. It's like the final sequence of "Zero Dark Thirty" punctuated by a gag from "Rosemary's Baby" or one of the "Paranormal Activity" movies. Jeepers!

"Devil's Due" tells the story of a young couple who are dealing with an earlier-than-expected pregnancy. They're recording the pregnancy for prosperity, which is a pretty nifty framework for the found-footage conceit, especially when the pregnancy becomes really unplanned... in all sorts of supernaturally possessed ways. If you have a pregnant girlfriend or wife, chances are you'll probably want to skip this one. There's a lot less demonic hooey in "Saving Mr. Banks." Trust us.

The movie, which stars Zach Gilford, Allison Miller, and Sam Anderson, is out this Friday.
