The Film
A young newlywed couple, Zac and Samantha, takes their honeymoon to the Dominican Republic and on their final night they let their cab driver take them to secluded local spot for a party they'd never forget. The bar has locals and other lucky tourists who have been brought their. The couple awakens in their hotel the next morning not sure exactly what happened the night before but they figure they just partied too hard. Upon their arrival home Samantha discovers she is pregnant. The couple is happy despite not planning on a child yet and plan for the best for their child. Samantha's pregnancy is odd, as she goes through violent streaks, and craves raw meat. The couple also sees strange people in the neighborhood watching their house. On the night of the birth these strangers have taken over the house and won't let Zac near his wife and they get their Satanic ritual baby.

Please excuse me a moment... FUCK THIS PIECE OF SHIT. This movie is beyond boring. It is incredibly uninteresting and wastes a young couple that is actually likeable while on screen together. It isn't possible for this movie to be any more predictable than it already is or more cliched than it already it. You'd have more fun waxing your mother-in-laws back, or poking yourself in the eye or stubbing your toe over and over for the duration of this film. It's excruciatingly bad. There found footage angle does nothing to add to the movie and judging by the fact that we see everything from the point of view of Zac who is recording home videos there should be no fucking way we can see Samantha chow down on raw meat in a grocery store from the vantage point of a security camera. I hate this fucking movie. It's an insult to just about everything on Earth. Except stupid people. I'm sure stupid people will like it.

The Audio & Video
The video looked fine and the audio sounded fine. It is a nice Blu-ray presentation. Consider it a giant dog turd presented in a crystal display case.

The Bottom Line
Nobody needs to waste their time with this movie. It isn't remotely scary or interesting. If you have any inkling of curiosity to see this movie just stick a fork in an electrical socket and short out your whole house so you can't.
