My prayers to the horror gods have been answered. TRUE BLOOD, a show that’s just been getting worse and worse with every season is finally facing the true death. Just when you think it couldn’t get more ridiculous, they find a way. If anything, that’s been the true success of of the show…that and the massive following of rabid fans who, on the one hand, are willing to look past all of the insanity for the rare good bits (myself included in that lot), and those who love the show no matter how insane it gets (or perhaps because of it). I was a big fan when the show began, poor Southern accents aside, but then the show began to spiral out of control. Well, good news for me and bad news for the legions of followers and fans: THE NEXT SEASON, SEASON 7 OF TRUE BLOOD WILL BE ITS LAST!

DARREN LYNN BOUSMAN’S THE BARRENS COMING TO BLU-RAY/DVD THIS OCTOBER

The last time we heard anything about Darren Lynn Bousman’s (SAW franchise, REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA) Jersey Devil feature THE BARRENS was months ago when a sales art poster was released for Cannes. Whether you’ve been a long time Backwoods Horror reader or have just joined the party, you may be aware that we are suckers for the ‘ol monster-in-the-woods horror flicks. While many other monstrous legends have often received the horror film treatment, the Jersey Devil has been woefully underdone, with perhaps the last decent film to broach the subject being Dante Tomaselli’s very creepy SATAN’S PLAYGROUND which came out in 2006 and featured Felissa Rose, Ellen Sandweiss, and Edwin Neal (the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Hitchhiker).

With Bousman at the helm, THE BARRENS, starring Stephen Moyer, Mia Kirshner, Erik Knudsen, J Larose, Allie MacDonald, Max Topplin and Peter DaCunha may give the Jersey Devil the monster film treatment it deserves. Now we have news that Anchor Bay will be releasing THE BARRENS via DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on October 9th. The film will also hit theaters in a limited release and additional big-screen showings based on fan demand via a partnership with Tugg.

SYNOPSIS:

Despite their reluctance, Richard Marlow takes his wife Cynthia, their young son Danny, and his teenage daughter Sadie to the Pine Barrens for a long weekend of camping and family bonding. As they arrive at the Wharton State Forest, a mutilated deer runs out into the road, nearly colliding with the Marlows’ car. Later that evening, another bloodied animal falls from a tree. Bad turns to worse when, in the middle of the night, a college boy camping nearby disappears into the woods. Nevertheless, Richard presses the family to hike further into the forest, to the spot where he used to camp with his father. He is feverish and a past wound on his arm appears badly infected, but when it begins to rain, there is no turning back. Richard’s sickness soon becomes debilitating, his headaches turn to hallucinations. What’s worse, he believes there is something stalking them…something with yellow eyes, pointed horns, and the wings of a bat – THE JERSEY DEVIL. The disfigured bodies of the missing camper and another college boy soon turn up. The Marlows must fight for their lives as the horrifying answer reveals itself in a shocking and tragic conclusion.

The discs will present the movie in 16×9-enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen, with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound on the DVD and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 sound on the Blu-ray; extra features include commentary by Bousman and cinematographer Joseph White and a deleted scene. Retail prices are $26.98 for the DVD and $29.99 for the combo pack.

VIDEO: TWO CLIPS FROM TRUE BLOOD EPISODE 5.11 – SUNSET

Only 2 episodes left of HBO’s TRUE BLOOD. As the war between vampires and humans keeps heating up, and Russell Edgington goes off on his own (as he wants a bloody rampage, vampire religion be damned), I’m interested to find out just how things are going to turn out.

Claude (Giles Matthey) and Maurella (Kristina Anapau) take Sookie (Anna Paquin) to meet the faerie elder, who may know something about an ancient family secret.

VIDEO: TWO CLIPS FROM TRUE BLOOD EPISODE 5.10 – GONE, GONE, GONE

As we near the end of season 5 of HBO’s TRUE BLOOD, things are starting to heat up, literally, as True Blood factories all over the world are being blown up by the Authority who are now a cultist religious organization that believes vampires should rule over human like cattle…and they’re forcing “mainstreamers” to feed on humans as the world’s supply of True Blood begins to run out. It’s turning into an all out Vampire vs. Human war and I’m diggin’ it, which is surprising given I haven’t been very impressed with most of the season. Check out three clips below for the next episode: GONE, GONE, GONE.

Episode #58 (5.10): Gone, Gone, Gone”:
Airdate: Sunday August 12th, 2012

With vampire-on-human attacks increasing, the Authority attempts to woo public favor. Meanwhile Nora (Lucy Griffiths) tries to convert Eric to Lilith’s gospel. Jason finds a mysterious scroll; Elijah (Keram Malicki-Sanchez), the new vampire sheriff of Area 5, pushes Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Tara (Rutina Wesley) to obey a new mandate; Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar) search for Emma (Chloe Noelle); Russell (Denis O’Hare) seeks a higher calling. Written by Alexander Woo; directed by Scott Winant.
