Adam MacDonald's Backcountry snatched up by IFC

Backcountry Adam MacDonald

Bears are pretty f*cking scary. They're like the sharks of the wilderness, only you don't drown while they're eating you; unless you're the unluckiest person ever, that is. Adam MacDonald's survival thriller BACKCOUNTRY will give us another reason to stay out of the woods as it was just announced that IFC Midnight acquired the U.S. rights to the film. Hopefully there will be a trailer and some stills heading our way soon while we wait for a release date!

Executive produced by Jeff Roop, Michael Baker and Brandon Baker, BACKCOUNTRY goes like this:

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 stars TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE’s Eric Balfour, Nicholas Campbell, Missy Peregrym and Jeff Roop.
