Channeling Rosemary’s Baby, Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive poster premiere for Twentieth Century Fox’s Devil’s Due, starring “Terra Nova’s” Allison Miller and “Friday Night Lights'” Zach Gilford.
The film comes from Radio Silence, who collectively delivered the final short on our V/H/S anthology from last year. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett directed Devil’s Due for the team.
Penned by Lindsay Devlin, “After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but, as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.”
Hoping to capitalize on the success of The Devil Inside‘s beginning of the year release, Devil’s Due will bow in theaters everywhere January 17, 2014.
Let’s take a quick look at the teaser poster, shall we?
What I love about it is how striking it is, on all fronts. The font immediately pops, and the way it’s framed makes your eyes go immediately to the pregnant woman and baby’s crib. I love that there’s an actual photo being used, as opposed to some ugly photoshopped art. Lastly, the best way to embed an image in someone’s head is symbolism, and the creepy etching on the floor was immediately engrained in my brain. And while the audience for Devil’s Due may be for the younger crowd, the visuals will grab the attention of the older demographic who grew up terrified by Rosemary’s Baby. In short, this poster is easily a top 10 of the year for me!
