The Barrens

Something in Jersey is more demonic than Snooki.


Horror

Rod Lott
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.

Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

Mort! Mort! Mort! Mort!


Documentary

Rod Lott
In 1987, The Morton Downey Jr. Show burst out of nowhere — New Jersey, to be precise — and became a near-instant phenomenon, turning its loud-mouthed, chain-smoking host into the titan of trash TV. Less than two years later, ratings plummeted along with Downey's career.

Promise keeper — not


CFN

Gazette staff
Wes Welker, Kentucky Derby champion. Wes Welker is not a horse — or a jockey (though he could have fooled us). He is a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos. But he still won the Kentucky Derby, or at least made a boatload of cash off it.

Jersey Boys

Clint Eastwood tackles Broadway hit Jersey Boys, and despite its masterful casting, the film largely rings hollow.


Drama

Aimee Williams
It must be surreal to see your career reduced to a sluggish, 134-minute product dangling between musical and mob drama.
