“Devil’s Due” is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and written by Lindsay Devlin. It was released on January 17, 2014. The cast features Allison Miller, Zach Gilford and Sam Anderson.
The story is about a mysterious, lost night on a honeymoon in the Dominican Republic where the newlywed couple find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. It all started on their honeymoon when they visit a fortune teller Samantha McCall (Allison Miller) who cryptically tells them, “they’ve been waiting for you”.
As they were walking home, finding themselves a little lost on an unknown street they are offered a lift from a cab driver who persuaded them to go to a hidden underground bar. The couple partied until they passed out drunk and were dragged into an underground chamber where Sam was subject a ritual by an invisible force. Zach (Zach Gilford) and Sam were clueless as to what happened when they woke up the next day and even had no idea of how they got back to their hotel.
A few weeks after the honeymoon, Sam found out that she is pregnant and seemed surprised since she never forgets to take the pill. As her pregnancy develops, the couple noticed drastic changes like she begins to experience nosebleeds, stomach bruising, cravings for raw meat even though she’s a vegetarian, supernatural powers like telekinetic, super-strength and unexplained feelings of rage.
In one scene when the couple attended a holy communion at their church and the priest begins to disturbingly cough out blood during the service causing the kids and the rest of the people inside the church to freak out. Meanwhile, at home Zach checked the communion footage he filmed and saw the mysterious cab driver again as well as a strange symbol. He also noticed there were strangers watching their house and someone even placed a hidden camera in their home so they can monitor the baby’s progress.
With regard to the symbol he visits the priest in the hospital later that night who revealed the symbol is about summoning the Antichrist. Zach was led to an abandoned house at the end of his street as he decided to investigate the symbol. He discovered CCTV footage of his house and was almost caught by the settlers who were performing a ritual inside the place. He barely managed to escape from them as he hurried home only to find Sam in a trance-like state holding a knife to her stomach, there was a struggle as Zach begs her to stop as she continues to press the knife to her stomach until a mysterious blast of light flashed.
Zach finds Sam lying in a pool of blood with her stomach cut and saw the cab driver with the second doctor taking the baby away. Later on, Zach is arrested and is accused of murdering his wife and child. The conclusion of the story is that the same mysterious cab driver offers a lift again to another couple on their honeymoon in Paris.
