Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie's found-footage conceit never creates a proper atmosphere, something essential to any horror film but particularly one involving the occult."
‑ Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader
"Dredging up horror movie favorites like random nosebleeds, a traumatized priest and a mama-to-be with a yen for raw meat, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett direct with competence but a dispiriting lack of originality."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"'Devil's Due' is pretty much a found-footage version of the classic 1968 Roman Polanski movie 'Rosemary's Baby.'"
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"A by-the-blueprint Prenatal Activity stalking a boring white couple as Satan's spawn gestates in her womb. But it's the ubiquity of cameras that seems most infernal--is there anywhere a lens won't follow? Forget hell--it's more like eternal HAL."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Distressingly locates evil in ethnicity: A scene in which the wife marvels at the lovely 'whiteness' of her nude husband sleeping among snowy sheets seems more troubling than cute after the couple falls victim to dusky satanists in the Dominican Republic."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Throw in an abandoned house in the neighborhood that is suddenly occupied, a vanishing obstetrician and a first communion ceremony that goes terribly wrong, and the chill factor quickly rises."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"At least there's a credible premise in "Devil's Due," an otherwise feeble exercise in the found-footage form."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"A better-than-average found-footage thriller..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"[T]he small achievement of Devil's Due is how much it both exploits the video-cam approach and overcomes some of its limitations."
‑ Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
""Due" Should Never Have Been Found"
‑ Charles Koplinski, Illinois Times
"A disjointed and unconvincing movie that is also embarrassingly derivative of "Paranormal Activity.""
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"The feature-length debut of two thirds of the directorial troupe Radio Silence scrambles to find any excuse to cut to a new angle or shoot traditional coverage while debasing a potentially compelling story with every found-footage cliché in the book."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, TheWrap
"A cheap rip-off of "Rosemary's Baby" has little in the way of chills."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
"When told that space would be tight this week I asked if I could review Devil's Due by simply saying, 'Trust me, folks, this thing sucks a moose.'"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"It's certainly not the worst of the found-footage subgenre, but it's a far cry from its Sixties- and Seventies-era cinematic inspirations."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
