Seeing as it’s October and all, that makes it the time of the year when most film fans start looking forward to Halloween and obsessively watching and re-watching every horror movie they can get their hands on. This October there seems to be a depressing dearth of new horror-related wide releases in the theaters though, leaving a hole in all of our hearts.

Depressing as the state of the multiplexes right now may be, there is a new horror movie called Devil’s Due coming out this January, and it even stars everybody’s favorite sheepish, second-string quarterback, Friday Night LightsZach Gilford. The film is about a character played by Gilford meeting and marrying a character played by Allison Miller (TV’s Go On), which is all well and good and everything—who doesn’t like to see young love, after all—but problems start to pop up when Miller’s character gets pregnant and all signs point to her baby being the devil. Big problems. Click through to watch the baby cause a little prenatal havoc.

Devil’s Due is brought to us by co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet, who recently worked on the found footage horror compilation V/H/S. It doesn’t really look like it’s breaking any boundaries as far as the woman-gets-pregnant-with-the-anti-christ sub-genre of horror goes, but it does have the luxury of coming out at a time of the year when everything else in the theater tends to be crap. With this coming out January 17, and the new Paranormal Activity movie coming out at the beginning of the same month and I, Frankenstein coming out a week later, it’s starting to look like studios have given up on releasing horror around Halloween and are testing out just dumping it all in January. If that’s the case, we’ll probably have to counter by extending our Halloween celebrations through all the other holidays and into the new year. It just makes sense. I can’t wait to decorate my roof with zombie reindeer.
