I’m confused as to why The Barrens has been released as Devil in the Woods, probably the most confusing part is I’d watched it on VOD as The Barrens in the UK. It’s only a small detail anyway, as Devil in the Woods (as I will call it for this review) is a film worth seeing.

"True Blood" star Stephen Moyer takes the lead in director Darren Lynn Bousman's Jersey Devil-themed nightmare Devil in the Woods (known in the Us as The Barrens; review here), and in honor of the flick's UK home video release, we have a new still!
Look for the release on 3 March 2014 via the folks at Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.
Richard (Moyer) is eager for his new wife (Mia Kirshner) and their combined family to get along so he plans a vacation to the reclusive Pine Barrens.
Desperate for real solitude, Richard leads them deeper into the woods, where it quickly becomes clear that all is not peaceful as animals are found mutilated and horrifically killed. Struck down by illness, Richard and his family are stranded as the local legend of the ‘Jersey Devil’ that stalks the darkened woods starts to haunt their thoughts.
