    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    As with most found footage films, there’s a lot of tediousness, with the early proceedings resembling the sort of home movies from which anyone not directly involved would normally flee. show more

    Roger Moore Movie Nation

    The dialogue is dull, the performances perfunctory and while it is novel to leave out “the explainer” character — that slim hope that a priest, an expert on the Occult or whoever, can give the characters answers — common to this genre, leaving that character out robs the film of pathos and urgency. show more

    Devil's Due is one of those films that borrows so many key elements from other and often better movies that genre buffs could amuse themselves by composing lists of all the titles that it blatantly rips off throughout. show more

    Randy Cordova Arizona Republic

    Although it won’t win any points for originality, it is a fast-moving little chiller filled with creepy atmosphere and convincing performances. show more

    The small achievement of Devil’s Due is how much it both exploits the video-cam approach and overcomes some of its limitations. show more

    An ordinary, forgettable horror film. Even the Devil deserves more than this. show more

    The Guardian

    It's as substantial as seeing "The Exorcist" redone on Snapchat – and let's not even consider the implication of casting black and Latino performers as Satan's minions, because clearly its makers haven't. show more

    Tim Robey The Telegraph

    Oscillates between the jolting and the absurd, bottoming out with a nonsensical coda. show more

    Devil’s Due spends far too much time on home movie footage of likeable newlyweds Zach (Zach Gilford) and Samantha McCall (Allison Miller), while neglecting to scare the bejesus out of us. show more

    The Devil may have all the best tunes, but this really is the worst sort of cinematic karaoke. show more

    This was a movie that was poorly conceived. It reminded me of other movies (Paranormal Activities come to mind, Blair Witch Project is another ) with similar scenes and themes. Very unoriginal! Save your time and money. Maybe worth $1.27 at Redbox someday (and only after drinking heavily).

    Filming of scenes jump a lot and the last scene at the Eifel Tower in Paris has no connection. It looks like a movie made by nonprofessionals. Try another movie

    No suspense in this awful poorly acted and directed movie. Give me a headache because most of the movie was filmed with a hand held camera. Stay away. Save your money.
