'The Barrens' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu Aug 23, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Hell will be unleashed on Blu-ray just in time for Halloween!

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is readying 'The Barrens' for Blu-ray on October 9.

It's known as the Jersey Devil, the winged beast spawned 400 years ago by Satan himself. Some say this creature still inhabits the dense pine forests of southern New Jersey, where Richard Vineyard (Stephen Moyer, "True Blood") takes his family for a rustic weekend camping trip. As the Vineyard family ventures further into the woods in search of the perfect campsite, Richard teeters on the edge of sanity. And it seems that the blood-crazed demon called The Jersey Devil may no longer be just a myth. Mia Kirshner ("The Vampire Diaries"), Erik Knudsen ('Saw II') and Allie MacDonald ('House at the End of the Street') co-star in this twisted chiller from writer/director Darren Lynn Bousman ('Saw II-IV') about a new kind of horror that lives – and kills – in a place called The Barrens.

Specs haven't been revealed, and supplements include: Audio Commentary with Writer/Director Darren Lynn Bousman and Director of Photography Joseph White and a Deleted Scene.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
