All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Barrens (2012)



Starring: Stephen Moyer, Mia Kirshner
Director: Darren Lynn Bousman


Premise:
A family goes camping in the Pine Barrens in hopes of bringing their family together. Instead the father suffers from delusions of the legendary Jersey Devil and murders seem to be happening around the camping site.

My Take:
The story was intriguing as the majority of the movie the viewer isn't certain is the monster is real or just in the mind of the father because he is infected with rabies and could be a murder. For me it kind of feel apart in the last fifteen minutes. I think it would have been more powerful to leave it open ended and guessing.

Rating: Warning


Watched: Netflix DVD rental
