Similar to a marketing strategy used by last year’s horror-remake Carrie, the marketing team for the upcoming horror-thriller Devil’s Due has unveiled a hilarious prank video. While the prank doesn’t involve as much as the Carrie prank, it’s still a doozy. The film, made in the “found-footage” genre that is so commonplace these days, follows a newlywed couple expecting a child. Wouldn’t you know it? It’s a demon baby. While the film looks so-so, this prank is awesome. If you saw a stroller on its own and you could hear a crying baby inside, would you go see if the infant was okay? You may not want to after this.
Here’s the trailer for the film:
Official synopsis for Devil’s Due:
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.
