This weekend sees a new found footage horror movie, Devil’s Due, arrive in theaters. And it’s about everybody’s favorite subject, Satanic babies. Where does Devil’s Due fall in the power ranking of Satanic children? Let’s find out!
We’ll be taking this from best to worst, and sticking to essentially unholy terrors, although yes, It’s Alive! and The Brood are both great horror movies you should check out. And, as a result, our first movie isn’t a surprise…
<!–pagetitle:Rosemary’s Baby (1968)–>
Arguably Rosemary’s Baby is one of the defining horror movies about Satan, and still one of the best. The cast included top-notch actors like John Cassavettes and Ruth Gordon, and it was directed by Roman Polanski. In other words, it doesn’t get better than this. Although it gets close.
No, this does not rank so highly because they filmed a big chunk of it at our beloved editor-in-chief’s house, it ranks so highly because it fries stale horror cliches for the sake of comedy, and the fact that Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant pretty much put every talented person they knew into the mix definitely helps.
