'Devil's Due' baby prank scares the hell out of New York

By Greg Gilman

New Yorkers weren't only victims of extreme cold earlier this month, they were the victims of a terrifying promotional prank for the upcoming found-footage horror movie "Devil's Due."

"Devil Baby Attack," a new video that launched on Tuesday, features an animatronic spawn of Satan rampaging through the snow-covered streets of NYC via a remote-controlled carriage.

The creative stunt designed to scare up ticket sales at the box office this weekend was dreamed up by NYC-based viral marketing company Thinkmodo, which was also behind the hilarious hidden-camera "Carrie" café prank.

That prank, featuring a fake telekenetic wreaking havoc in public, has since scored over 52 million views on YouTube.

20th Century Fox is releasing "Devil's Due" -- a new spin on an old premise audiences may remember from Roman Polanski's horror classic "Rosemary's Baby" -- in theaters this weekend.

That was better than the entire 3 hours of the Golden Globes. I loved the guy in the middle of

the video that didn't show any reaction.
