Updated with the film’s trailer!
It’s been a while since we’ve heard much about Darren Lynn Bousman’s psychological horror The Barrens, which stars Stephen Moyer, Mia Kirshner, Erik Knudsen, J Larose, Allie MacDonald, Max Topplin and Peter DaCunha. The film played Cannes in May and now we’ve learned that the film will be hitting DVD and Blu-ray on October 9th. But you can see it theatrically! On the big screen! It opens in limited release on September 28th! There’s also a TUGG theatrical campaign in the works – but I’d advise you to just go ahead and check your local listings and see it on the 28th. Let exhibitors know you want to see it with your wallet, not some petition.
In the film Moyer plays “a man who takes his family on a camping trip to the more than 1 million acres of dense forest known as the New Jersey Pine Barrens, where he becomes convinced they’re being stalked by the legendary winged monster that looks like a deformed hybrid of several different animals.” The legend of The Jersey Devil has been passed along for hundreds of years, as the creature has risen from obscurity to take its place alongside the Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot and the Chupacabra.
