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

    Although a slow-burn approach to this sort of creepfest is generally a smart move, Devil’s Due peters out of outright suspense midway through and never fully recovers, despite (or possibly because of) a final reel that may shock some viewers but will leave die-hard genre fans gnashing their teeth and rending their clothes in dismay.

    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.

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

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