What begins as a romantic weekend camping trip deep into the Canadian woods quickly decends into an exercise in abject horror in actor-director Adam MacDonald’s Backcountry. Despite the warnings of a seemingly prescient park ranger, Alex and Jenn venture blindly along the Blackfoot Trail with Alex’s memory their sole compass and only a few supplies on hand. Before long, the couple encounters a multitude of dangers including a menacing backwoods guide with questionable intentions towards each of them, a complete loss of direction, and, most threatening of all, a wild force of nature that stalks them relentlessly. Backcountry “will have you thinking twice about your next camping trip.”—Nick Watson, Black Sheep Reviews.
