Backcountry: Nature Is A Horror!

One of the more interesting movies I saw at the Calgary International Film Festival last fall, was Backcountry – an unusual horror story in which nature is the real horror.

Backcountry is the first film from Canadian writer/director Adam MacDonald and stars Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue),Jeff Roop (Heartland) and Eric Balfour (Haven). Check out the official synopsis following the jump. Backcountry opens on March 20th.

BACKCOUNTRY

Directed by Adam MacDonald

Opening March 20th

 

Synopsis:

Based on a true story, BACKCOUNTRY follows an urban couple who go camping in the Canadian wilderness – where unimaginable beauty sits alongside our most primal fears. Alex (Jeff Roop) is a seasoned outdoorsman while Jenn (Missy Peregrym), a corporate lawyer, is not. After much convincing, and against her better judgment, she agrees to let him take her deep into a Provincial Park to one of his favorite spots – the secluded Blackfoot Trail.

On their first night, deep in the forest, they have an unsettling encounter with Brad (Eric Balfour), a strange alpha male with eyes for Jenn who may or may not be following them. Alex’s desire to quickly reach Blackfoot Trail only intensifies. They push further and further into the woods, Alex stubbornly insisting that he remembers the way. After three days their path disappears; they are hopelessly lost. Without food or water, they struggle to find their way back, the harsh conditions bringing out the best and worst in them, pushing their already fragile relationship to the breaking point. When they realize they have entered a bear’s territory, being lost suddenly becomes the least of their problems. Terror, horror, will, and survival become paramount.

When I covered CIFF for Eclipse, I gave it a B+.
