Devil In The Woods Short Review

2 stars for this strange non entity of a horror film.Devil In The Woods cover
Devil In The Woods is written and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV) and was originally released in the U.S. under the name "The Barrens".
It tells the story of Richard Vineyard (Stephen Moyer - True Blood, Quills), a father wanting to bring his new family together and help his children, Sadie (Allie MacDonald -House At The End Of The Street, Stories We Tell) and Danny (Peter Dacunha - Mistletoe Over Manhattan) to bond with his new wife Cynthia (Mia Kirschner - The L Word, The Black Dahlia).
Devil campsiteIn true horror film tradition, he decides the best way to achieve this would be for them to go camping in the "Forest Of Death and Blood", known in this case as the Pine Barrens.
Local legend has it, according to the tales told around the campfire, that the woods are stalked by a devil creature, wings, claws, teeth, etc. Armed with this information, Richard decides to take his family deeper into the woods  where they happen upon a campsite featuring a dead dog tied to a tree and a shredded tent. This is, of course, the ideal place to set up camp. As Richard becomes sick, he and his family are forced into a desperate struggle for survival.
