Adam MacDonald's survival thriller Backcountry stalks a trailer

Backcountry Adam MacDonald


You know what’s cool? Not being eaten alive by a bear. The Adam MacDonald-directed survival thriller BACKCOUNTRY would like to make you think twice about the next time you go frolicking deep into the woods, starting with this incredibly tense trailer that sees a few unlucky folks get hunted by a man-eating bear. You can watch the trailer below and be sure to keep an eye here for more as we get it!

Here’s an overly complicated synopsis for a movie about some people getting chased through the woods by a bear:

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.
