The animatronics prank aimed at promoting horror 'Devil's Due' scared (almost) everyone as it went through the Big Apple
Ahead of the release of upcoming horror title Devil's Due, the marketing team behind the the upcoming 20th Century Fox release have come up with a novel way of promoting the film: by scaring the crap out of unsuspecting New Yorkers on the streets of the Big Apple.
Devil's Due arrives in US cinemas in January and in the UK the following month
Much like the viral campaign for last year's remake of Carrie, the marketing team behind the new horror title have decided that traditional posters and trailers aren't enough for their film. The result is a sketch video showing some priceless reaction from the people of New York, with the 'devil baby' scaring everyone who came across it. Well, everyone except for the stone-faced street cleaner at the 1 minute mark.

The first horror flick of 2014 will be rather inappropriately dated for Valentine's Day
Another one from the Paranormal Activity-style, found footage genre of horror movie, Devil’s Due tells the story of… well, it’s rather self explanatory, the story of the conception and birth of the Antichrist. Tired as the premise and style might seem, the trailer makes this movie seem acceptable at least. It centers around Zach and Samantha McCall, a happy pair of newlyweds (because of course they have to be newlyweds) at the end of their honeymoon, who discover that Samantha is unexpectedly pregnant, as you do.
Valentine's Day is a rather ironic due date for the Antichrist.
That’s where the horror element begins to kick in, with strange incidents around the house, shadowy figures prowling the woods surrounding the McCalls’ home, you know the drill. Gradually, all the incidents reveal a pattern, centering around Samantha’s pregnancy and the expectant mother herself begins to behave somewhat strangely, bursting into temper tantrums that she doesn’t remember afterwards and experiencing crippling stomach pains, in what seems like an exaggerated metaphor for pregnancy itself. Naturally, there is an exorcism and plenty of blood involved.

Zach and Samantha McCall are young newlyweds nearing the end of their honeymoon when they discover that Samantha is unexpectedly pregnant with their first child. From then on they start to notice strange occurences; prowlers outside their home, demonic symbolism written on doors; but that's the least of their worries as soon Samantha starts behaving increasingly strangely, bursting into fits of anger that she later forgets and suffering crippling stomach pains. According to one priest they consult, early Christian heretics wanted to use symbolism to invoke the antichrist - a prospect that turns their whole situation on its head as they dive into supernatural territory. With happenings becoming eerier and more dangerous, Zach must find out by any means possible what has come over his wife - and what's to come of his unborn child.

Everything in the movie is just plain bad, from a shot of a tabloid magazine heralding a "scandel" to a lawyer who refuses to put her client on the stand -- "because that's exactly what he would want!" -- despite the fact that said client is actually suing the other guy!
