The Barrens (REVIEW)

Every year right before Halloween there seems to be a whole slew of unheralded horror releases that get dumped at your local video store, Red Boxes etc. They tend to come and go without much fanfare because they seem to be either extremely low quality or in this case, like “The Barrens,” films that just didn’t turn out quite right. So I guess you can look at these as last minute emergency rentals for people wanting to watch something scary on Halloween.

Netflix Instant Watch: "The Caller" (2011)

Looking for a low budget horror flick that rates higher than the typical 2 star ratings that a lot of the instant watch flicks seem to earn? "The Caller" is a supernatural thriller involving a divorced woman who begins receiving disturbing telephone calls from a woman she doesn't know. As the woman tries to distance herself from the unknown caller, the calls become increasingly threatening and bizarre. Although this movie is shares some similarities with the 2000 movie "Frequency", its still a creepy little story that builds up to an interesting twist.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday October 5th, 2011

Trouble in Miami kids. It looks like Showtime and Michael C. Hall have yet to come to an agreement on a contract to extend Hall's run as "Dexter" two more seasons. Seems that Hall wants a shit load more money and Showtime only wants to give him a crap load. It's getting pretty heated. If an agreement can't be reached it looks like season 6, which premiered this past weekend could be the last.

The list of people who want nothing to do with "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" continues to grow with one Miss Blake Lively now passing on the leading role. Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Mia Wasikowska have also given a big "aww hell no" to the role. I don't want to jinx it but this sounds like wonderful news for Monica Keena. It's only a matter of time before she gets offered the role.

A bunch of new stills have found their way onto writer/director Darren Bousman's twitter page for "The Barrens", a new flick that follows a family on a camping trip where they run into the Jersey Devil. Hunky "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer takes lead in this one along with Mia Kirshner, who I don't know but from her IMDB picture I assume is a ball buster. I mean that in the best way possible.

"The Lost Coast Tapes" is a new found footage flick that follows a group who encounter the one and only Bigfoot. The forest beast not the monster truck. Although that would be pretty cool if it was just a bunch of kids being chased around by a giant truck. Anyway this isn't that. It's about the big hairy guy from the beef jerky commercials. I think we've gone off topic though. Take a look at the new poster for the flick. It's got a guy impaled on a tree. Grave Digger would probably be scarier anyway.

In Real People News: 

It's Halloween time kids and that means all kinds of creative lawn decorations. Like this one in North Carolina of a fake body stuffed under a riding lawn mower. Of course people in North Carolina are pretty dumb so a bunch of people called 911 when they saw it and a big to do broke out. Silly hicks.

Good news, Canada! You can now legally dress up like a woman, watch Simpsons porn and have sex with a Cabbage Patch Doll hooked up to a vacuum cleaner without fear of legal persecution. Long live freedom!
