One look at the trailer for the upcoming thriller “Backcountry” will make you think twice about venturing into the wilderness unprepared. Not that you were thinking about doing that anyway if you’re a frequent visitor to this website. In this creepy-looking flick, a camping trip turns deadly when a couple gets lost and stumbles upon the lair of a black bear. Read the official synopsis below.

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.


“Backcountry” will be out in select theaters and on VOD/digital platforms on March 20.
