Not since Mia Farrow gave birth have New Yorkers been in such panic. No, not since she gave birth to Rosemary’s Baby, just since she gave birth.
THERE’S A MARAUDING DEVIL BABY SCARING PEOPLE ON THE STREETS OF NEW YORK
BY JEFF BEER
This stunt promotion for Devil’s Due scares the hell out of concerned passersby and it’s hilarious.
How do you go about promoting a horror movie about a devil child? There are all the usual routes–TV ads, billboards, websites, trailers–but perhaps the best way to convey the spirit of the film is to actually scare the living hell out of people with an actual devil baby.
That’s what Thinkmodo has done for its latest stunt to promote 20th Century Fox’s Devil’s Due, which hits theatres this month. The shop, known for elaborate projects, built a robotic baby inside a remote-controlled stroller and then set it loose on the streets of New York. The reactions of well-meaning passersby are priceless.
Thinkmodo worked with L.A.’s Creature Effects to create the little bundle of horror, which required three operators–one for the stroller, the other two for the baby’s movement and facial expressions–who stayed well hidden a block or two away while the baby did its thing. To some parents of younger kids, a screaming, puking baby is nothing out of the ordinary, but this wee one goes for the full crazy and knocks it out of the park. [more bwaahahahaha! here]
Cowboy up New Yorkers.
You were tough enough to let Warren Wilhelm, Jr. haunt the halls of Gracie Mansion for the next four years, implementing enough liberal horror on you that you might as well install a turnstile on Rikers Island.
You can survive another B-movie movie promotion.
