Backwoods Horror / Rural Survival films


the true epicure in the terrible, to whom a new thrill of unutterable ghastliness is the chief end and justification of existence, esteems most of all the ancient, lonely farmhouses of backwoods New England; for there the dark elements of strength, solitude, grotesqueness, and ignorance combine to form the perfection of the hideous.

"The Picture in the House" by HP Lovecraft (1920)


Movies that have protagonists who are outsiders getting lost in the countryside and usually have antagonists who are hostile, inbred locals, often utterly deranged, most likely perverted and sometimes mutated. In this list there are usually no supernatural elements and there is usually some kind of chase sequence but it can also feature more of a siege.

There is some crossover with folk horror films (which do contain supernatural elements) and is partly inspired by this list I found while researching that one. The more violent extremes of this list grade into torture porn and there is often an element of hicksploitation to the American-set films. I have a separate list for hunting humans, films which tend to involve an outsider hunting people for sport, as opposed to locals hunting outsiders for food or just their own weird sadistic pleasures.

See also: Splat Pack and New French Extremity films, two groups of recent film-makers whose output often strays into Backwoods Horror territory.

Director: Xavier Gens
“ I may have watched too many recent backwoods horror and/or New French Extremity films but this seemed awfully by-the-numbers, with the weird rural family (all backwoods) and them pushing the Last Girl over the edge until she is a gore-encrusted, shambling wreck (very NFE). Apart from some little tweaks I felt it I'd seen this all before, first and second time around, although in its favour it is all as well done here as you will see. I'm afraid if you are going to try and tell this kind of story then you are really going to have to push the envelope and take us somewhere new as was done in House of 1,000 Corpses (classic backwoods horror that just kept going into some pretty odd places) and Martyrs (NFE that actually had a point to the sadism). However, these might be consider too weird for some (Rob Zombie did dial the oddity back in his Ho1kC sequel The Devil's Rejects after all), so if you prefer you rural brutality a little grittier and realistic then this might be for you. ” - Mighty_Emperor
