Devil’s Due – Review

Devil’s Due (2013), the latest horror release that combines Paranormal Activity with The Devil Inside.

We’ve all become accustomed these days to another demonic horror that steals ideas from classics such as The Blair Witch Project (1999) and Paranormal Activity (2007).

The home-video style shooting with hidden camera’s around the house that capture all the events as they unfold – unfortunately though for Devil’s Due, it seemed to lack any originality of its own.

This horror follows a newlywed couple who return from their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic with an unexpected addiction to their new family.

Pregnant and excited to begin their new life, little do they know that the unborn baby is not theirs, and over time as they baby grows, it becomes apparently clear that this baby may be that of the Devil’s. This truly does become the pregnancy from hell as these two battle unknown enemies, content with bringing this evil child into the world.

With the odd ‘jump out of your seat moment’ and some twists that can be seen coming from a mile away, Devil’s Due is a disappointing addition to the horror genre that provides little scares and even less resolution on exactly ‘why’ it all happened in the first place.

Last Vegas – Review

When your seventies are just around the corner, and you’re about to get married for the first time, where exactly would you choose to host your bachelor party?…Vegas of course!

Billy (Michael Douglas) has it all…fame, fortune, his health, and a 32-year-old fiance who makes him feel like its the nineteen-sixties all over again.

So when they decide to get hitched in Las Vegas, Billy’s life long pals, Sam (Kevin Kline), Archie (Morgan Freeman), and Paddy (Robert De Niro) know there’s only one place on Earth to host the ultimate bachelor party, Sin City itself.

(L-R) Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Kline star in Last Vegas (2014).

But when set four guys, who refuse to give into age, loose in the city of sin, carnage, partying, and life-long secrets are sure to flow as rapidly as the alcohol – and decade-old friendships are set to face their toughest tests yet as these four guys learn the true meaning of happiness.

Last Vegas is a slice of comedy heaven that teaches us that there is no greater gift in life than friendship and just because the decades are piling up, doesn’t mean your best days are behind you – age is truly only a number!

Bad Neighbours – Review

Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are adjusting to life a new parents and, despite the lack of social life, things seem to be going well – that is until a frat house, who give meaning to the term ‘Bad Neighbours’, move in next door.

Concerned about the ensuing noise waking up their newborn daughter, Mac and Kelly try and make a pact with their new neighbours, promising to refrain from calling the cops if the noise levels get too much.

Of course, the pact is quickly decimated one night when, fearful their baby will wake up to the noise of the party next door, and unable to reach fraternity President Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron), decide to break the pact and call the cops.

With Teddy feeling betrayed, Mac and Kelly quickly find themselves in an all-out-war of survival with the frat brothers from Delta Psi and their devious and unrelenting President who’s out for revenge.

Bad Neighbours is the perfect contrast of people coming to terms with growing up and people trying their hardest to avoid growing up. With a fantastic cast including Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (known to a generation as McLovin’), an abundance of laugh-out-loud comedy, and twists that will have you hooked until the end, Bad Neighbours is a genuine triumph that will surely be added to the DVD collection.
