Fair disclosure: I saw backcountry in September at the Calgary International Film Festival. It played there as a film made by a Canadian crew – including Alberta director Adam MacDonald – and because it was really, really good. My CIFF review follows the jump.

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 […]
CIFF Review: Backcountry: The Horrors of Nature!
Brad and Jenn are off on a long weekend of enjoying nature – he’s taking her to see a treasured spot from his past – when they unwittingly encroach on the territory of black bear. Based on a true story, Backcountry is Canadian director Adam MacDonald’s first feature. If quality counts, it won’t be his […]
After The Meteor Shower – Haven Returns With Mysteries To Burn!
Over its first three seasons, Syfy’s Haven (Fridays, 10/9C) has quietly built itself up as a consistent, weird, high-quality supernatural series – the network’s best series after the soon-to-end Warehouse 13. After a cliffhanger ending that left the town of Haven suffering from a deadly meteor shower and two of its three lead characters disappearing […]
Haven’s Stars Cut Loose On Season Three!
With Syfy’s Haven (Fridays, 10/9C), beginning its third season on Friday, having quietly become one of the best genre series on television, it only made sense to spend an hour listening to the show’s stars – Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour talk about the upcoming series – and just generally have a great […]

Haven Gets a Creepy Groundhog Day Episode!
It’s strange – even the worst television series seem to be more entertaining when they do a Groundhog Day episode. Which makes it inevitable that a good and continually improving series like Syfy’s Haven [Fridays, 10/9C] would produce a really good one.
Syfy’s Haven Brings In Jason Priestly and Edge® for Multi-Episode Arcs!

Small Town on the Maine Coast? Check. Strange Doings? Check. Welcome to Haven!
Much has been said already, about Syfy’s new series, Haven [Fridays, 10/9C], which premieres this evening. It’s based, loosely, on a short novel by Stephen King – The Colorado King – that featured an unsolved mystery in a town filled with very unusual people. Into this small town comes FBI Agent Audrey Parker [Emily Rose], […]
TELEVISION: Haven – Syfy’s Excursion into Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid – Is In Production!
