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, the Alberta-made thriller I reviewed for Eclipse while attending the Calgary International Film Festival in September, has a trailer. Check it out after the jump. Backcountry opens on March 20th.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
The accompanying blurb with the screener of the second season finale of Haven [Syfy, 10/9C] says that it ‘comes to a shattering conclusion when ghosts rise from the dead – revisiting the living, bringing shocking revelations and seeking revenge.’ This is not hyperbole.
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 [Fridays, 10/9C] is bringing two wildly disparate guest stars onto into the series for four-episode arcs: Jason Priestley and the WWE’s Edge®. For details on their arcs, follow the jump.
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], […]
Syfy’s new series, Haven may have sprung from the mind of Stephen King, but its premiere episode [due to run at 9/8C, July 9, 2010] is being shepherded to the small screen by Adam Kane [The Mentalist, Heroes, Pushing Daisies]. Details from the press release follow the jump.
