"The legend goes, the Devil himself lives in these woods..." Anchor Bay & Voltage Pictures have debuted a trailer for Darren Lynn Bousman's The Barrens, his latest horror-thriller, this one set out in the woods. Stephen Moyer stars as the father of two daughters who he is taking on a camping trip to the rustic forests of southern New Jersey. There he encounters what might be Satan himself. Mia Kirshner ("The Vampire Diaries"), Erik Knudsen (Scream 4) and Allie MacDonald (House At The End Of The Street) co-star in this twisted chiller about a new kind of horror that lives–and kills–in a place called The Barrens. Have fun!

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by esteemed guest Darren Lynn Bousman (director of Saw II-IV, 11-11-11, Repo! The Genetic Opera, The Devil's Carnival) to go over their latest Picks of the Week, the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for Disney's Wreck-It Ralph and Robert Zemeckis' Flight and much more. The main topic of the night was around modern musicals in honor of Rock of Ages hitting theaters this week. The guys talk with Darren about his love for the genre, his experience making two horror themed musicals, and where they all want to see the genre go from there.

The stage is set, the curtain lifts, and director Darren Bousman and writer Terrance Zdunich have graced us with another twisted yarn of dark ideals in fantastic worlds set to some seriously catchy songs. The Devil's Carnival isn't set in a sci-fi world like Repo! The Genetic Opera, the duo's first trek into ambitious, musical fables, rather the underworld, the depths where sinners lie. Call it Hell. Their conceit is hefty, their execution is moodily carried off, and The Devil's Carnival becomes a tale even more giddy in tone yet grim with its underpinning than Repo! With an added pre-shows as part of the road show events

Last year, director Darren Lynn Bousman had his timely horror film 11-11-11 chased out of theaters just as quickly as it came by bigger releases like The Immortals and Jack & Jill (though I can't imagine the film being much worse than either of them). Now Bousman is back with a film that showed up at Fantastic Fest back in September of 2010, and the first trailer for the horror thriller Mother's Day, a remake of Charles Kaufman's 1980 film of the same name. Rebecca DeMornay is rocking the cradle again as the "mother" of a villainous family returning to their childhood home to terrorize the new home owners and their guests.

"Come one, come two, come all!" If you're not a fan of Repo! The Genetic Opera, the Bousman-directed dark musical, I suggest staying away from this, it's more of the same - but at a carnival. THR (via SlashFilm) has the first official teaser trailer for a new 55-minute film from Darren Bousman and Terrance Zdunich, creators of Repo!, called The Devil's Carnival. This follow-up is "more accessible than Repo but also a lot darker than Repo" and includes a lot of the same cast: Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega, Bill Moseley, Skinny Puppy's Ogre, plus newcomers Jessica Lowndes, Sean Patrick Flannery and Briana Evigan. Enjoy!

"And on this day, innocent blood will spill." With the release just over two weeks away, we now have what will likely be the final theatrical trailer (via Yahoo) for the timely horror film 11-11-11 from Mother's Day director Darren Lynn Bousman. Much like the last trailer for the film, it looks like quite an embellished and exaggerated horror venture, almost bordering on the tongue-in-cheek nature of something like Drag Me to Hell. There's clearly a lot of doomsday talk and religious connotations coming from the central terror in the film as a strange gateway is opened that could spell disaster for Earth. See the new trailer below!

The previous trailers have focused on the religious mystery and creepy presence of recurring numbers, but now yet another new trailer for the forthcoming horror film 11-11-11 from Darren Lynn Bousman, the director behind a few sequels in the Saw franchise, Mother's Day and Repo!, seems to be going for an over-the-top angle as far as the horror is concerned. Complete with a prominent voiceover that sounds almost like it's straight out of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse, the trailer makes the film seem a little campy on the marketing side of things, especially with that last bumper. See it below!

After helming a couple sequels in the Saw franchise, Mother's Day and Repo!, director Darren Lynn Bousman is delivering 11-11-11, a timely thriller coming on that very date later this year. Now Bloody-Disgusting has revealed another new trailer for the horror film which focuses on one man who becomes plagued with the strange happenings and constant sightings of the number 11. Much like Jim Carrey in The Number 23, this first creepy trailer shows Timothy Gibbs as the one becoming obsessed with the number which may not only have a horrific meaning for his own life, but possibly all of religion. Check it out below!

Mark the date. This second creepy/odd new teaser trailer for Darren Bousman's 11-11-11 first popped up a few days ago on Bloody-Disgusting, but was quickly pulled before we could even write it up. Now it's back in finished form and available for your viewing pleasure as a follow-up to the original teaser trailer for this horror movie that debuted back in February. I still think this looks really good, almost like if The Number 23 were actually a scary, taut horror-thriller. I'm looking forward to seeing a lot more, but for now, try to make sense of this teaser and the footage it shows. I'm not exactly sure what's going on yet? Check it out below!

Mark the date. Although they're still filming this in Spain right now, the first teaser trailer for Darren Lynn Bousman's new horror-thriller 11-11-11 has hit the web thanks to Darren's own blog via STYD and it's pretty damn good. 11-11-11 is said to have "more scares than all of Bousman's first films combined" involving the 11:11 phenomenon, whereby on the 11th month of 2011 at the 11th hour and 11th minute, the 11th door will open and supernatural entities will enter Earth. I'm a big Bousman fan, so of course I think this looks great, very unsettling. The cast includes: Timothy Gibbs, Michael Landes and Wendy Glenn. Watch below!

Yet another series of beautiful, custom-designed posters for a few fan-favorite genre cult classics. There's an awesome film festival held in Toronto called the Toronto After Dark Film Festival that runs every late August (the last one just wrapped up yesterday) featuring great genre, horror and sci-fi films as well as a lot of cult classics. Although we're a bit late featuring these, I thought these posters that Phantom City Creative designed for some of the festival's "fan-favorites" were too beautiful not to mention. They made five posters they created for some of the best movies to play at the fest, including Let the Right One In and Dead Snow.

In the midst of all the Sundance mayhem comes these four poster for the upcoming movie Repo Men, the "wannabe remake" of Darren Bousman's Repo! The Genetic Opera. We just featured the trailer a few weeks ago and it doesn't look that bad either, so maybe I'm being a bit harsh. But anyway, IMPAwards has posted three new posters from Repo Men that put together are part of the fourth poster. It's kind of a play on the MasterCard commercials with the price of various fake organs (which is part of the concept for this movie) and the "Total Price: $2,600,000." They actually do look pretty cool which is why I'm featuring them today.

Universal has just debuted the first deliciously red band trailer for Repo Men over on MySpace. This is the Hollywood rip off of Darren Bousman's Repo! The Genetic Opera but without all of the singing. It's about a future where human organs can be manufactured to replace defective ones, but they're expensive. And if you don't make your payments, the repo men will come and rip out the organs right out of your body. Repo Men stars Liev Schreiber, Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Alice Braga, Carice van Houten, and RZA. This trailer is red band and is pretty bloody, brutal, and gory (so watch out!), but it also looks pretty damn good.

Saw II & III director Darren Bousman's remake of Mother's Day has been rushed into production fairly quickly. It was only five months ago that we first learned it was even happening and now Bousman is already shooting this up in Canada. Darren just posted the first official photo from the remake on his Twitter today. It's not a behind-the-scenes shot but rather an actual photo showing Patrick Flueger (I think?) wrestling with what looks to be Jaime King. Either way it's a pretty dynamic first look at the movie, although it doesn't show much (in terms of story). Bousman also debuted a behind-the-scenes first look on IGN today as well.
