In a post-Saw
world, Darren Lynn Bousman
quietly has been making a series of horror films more in line with
scary movies of the 1970s than the torture-porn genre he helped usher
in. Already this year, DVD has brought us his superlative Mother's Day
remake and the low-key demonic pic 11-11-11
, and now The Barrens
. It's just too bad they've all been denied wide theatrical releases.
