Back in November of last year we learned that IFC Films had scooped up the U.S. rights to Adam MacDonald's survival thriller BACKCOUNTRY, and in March we will have another reason to fear the woods as Fangoria has learned that IFC will be releasing the film in select theaters and on VOD/digital platforms March 20 under its IFC Midnight banner.

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. Look for it in theaters and on VOD March 20.
