Oh, V/H/S contributors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, what terrible Faustian pact did you sign before taking this on? (And can you get a refund?)
In this found-footage supernatural thriller, anodyne newlywed Samantha (Allison Miller) becomes the unwitting host for a gestating Antichrist. Now, obviously, there’s a big old elephant in this room, and its name is ‘Rosemary.’
However, where Roman Polanski achieved infinitely more with artful suspense and great actors, this dismal affair merely cherry-picks jump-scares from the likes of Paranormal Activity and The Last Exorcism .
The Devil may have all the best tunes, but this really is the worst sort of cinematic karaoke.
