    Synopsis


    Backcountry
    A young couple on a weekend camping trip into the wilderness wage a grueling struggle for survival in this visceral thriller from Canada. Jenn (Missy Peregrym) is a high-powered executive whose cellphone is never out of reach. Determined to salvage their troubled relationship, Jenn's boyfriend Alex (Jeff Roop) takes them to a secluded campsite near a scenic lake where he used to play as a child. After popping their tent, the couple are settling in when lone hiker Brad (Eric Balfour) appears out of nowhere, and joins them for dinner. The fire dimming later that evening, however, Brad departs, leaving Jenn and Alex to prepare for their long hike the following day. Setting out bright and early, the couple make their way ever deeper into the sprawling forest, only realizing they're hopelessly lost once darkness begins to fall. Meanwhile, their nightmare has only just begun, because many dangers dwell in the forest, and they're about to face the worst one imaginable. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I really enjoyed this movie...It flew under the radar and wasn't really known for whatever reason.. only reason I got interested was I saw a preview on another flick I watched. This movie will hold you...it's not so much about the beast than it it is about the survival of the couple...I won't spill the beans but I can tell you all does not end well. I cared about the individuals in the movie as it did some character building in the early goings...you get the sense that things aren't as they should be and when they get lost...you know Hell is getting ready to break loose..couple of small twists and should'a , could'a...going on. Only $9.99 at Best Buy...what have you got to lose ? I recommend this for the horror/drama fanatics...well written, great flow...no boring parts at all...go get it !

      I've been waiting for this to come out on disc after renting it VoD months ago. The bear doesn't come into it until the second half, but it's a very well made indie film, more thriller than horror. However the bear mauling scene is horrific, it'll make you think twice about going camping in the woods. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

      I enjoyed both the performances and the plot of Backcountry. I had not heard of the film, but saw a high rating on rottentomatoes, which made me seek out the film. BB's price made it worthy of a purchase vs a rental. I'm glad I did buy a copy, it's a nice gem that I've shared with several friends.

      Another hit from the IFC MIDNIGHT label. If GRIZZLY and CLAWS were remade for today's thrill seekers, BACKCOUNTRY is that remake. If you wanted THE REVENANT to be only about the bear attack, BACKCOUNTRY is that bear attack movie. Looks terrific in Blu-ray.

      This movie is pretty good. Not a lot of stuff going on but getting lost in the woods can be all the horror you need. Also crossing paths with a big bear pretty horrifying too. Pretty sure I will never go camping again after watching this.

      This begins like any of a number of backwoods country yokel horror entries like "Wolf Creek", and then becomes something more menacing. Would make a great (if depressing) double feature with "Open Water".

      Likable characters keep this somewhat slow story from becoming boring. You really feel for this poor couple as the get more and more lost and get closer and closer to becoming bear dinner. I liked it.
