Storyline

In Boston, there is an unknown epidemic and the population is consuming the Hydropure water and vegetables from Whitefield Corporation. The City Hall Secretary, Taylor Lambert, contacts a newspaper journalist, Lisa Wallace, expecting to give evidence of a conspiracy that his partner Connie is collecting. However, Glenda is captured and murdered by the guards, and Lambert shoots the Mayor and takes a sample of his blood to give to Lisa. Lambert is hunted and wounded by the police. He meets the journalist, Ben Mosher, who writes for the sensationalist column 'Mystery Science' in the same newspaper. Lambert gives Ben a vial with the Major's blood before he dies and Ben gives the sample to his friend Knutt Jourgensen for analysis. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

this infection is worse than gangrene
16 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Adam Weissman, a director primarily known for kid shows gives us this Syfy original about Ben and Lisa, a duo of newspaper reporters who undercover a massive government conspiracy for an alien invasion.

X-files this definitely is not for one it has the worst CGI 'effects' since.... well the last Made-for- Syfy flick that i've seen. The plot is a bland carbon copy cut & paste job of about a million other films and I didn't give a toss about if our 'heroes' could save the day or not, it was just an ultra- lame attempt at movie making and could barely pass for entertainment much less as watchable.

My Grade: D-

DVD Extras: A trailer for "Backwoods" is all you get for extras
