A camping trip goes bad in Backwater, on DVD/VOD November 10th

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Horror films have warned us time and time again, do not go camping. Nothing good ever comes of it, all you get for going through the trouble of hiking out into the wilderness is terror and bloodshed. But nobody listens, people just keep going out into the woods and getting attacked by creeps and creatures.

It happens again in writer/director Christopher Schrack's BACKWATER, which will be receiving a DVD and VOD release from Osiris Entertainment on November 10th.

Justin Tully and Liana Werner-Gray star in the film, which has the following synopsis: 

Cass and Mark are a couple on a camping trip to the distant countryside. When their seemingly secluded getaway is interrupted by an ominous scream, they start to think someone might be stalking them, and encounter two strangers who are also in the woods near them. Despite everything appearing to be harmless, they can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong. The truth, however, is far more disturbing than meets the eye.

Personally, I'm glad movie characters keep making the poor decision to go camping, because even though I've seen similar scenarios play out several times before, I never can seem to get enough of it. Set your horror movie out in the woods and you've increased the odds that I'll watch it. BACKWATER has my attention, and the trailer makes it look like it could be a creepy, harrowing good time. I will be checking it out. Will you?
