Storyline

An urban couple go camping in the Canadian wilderness - where unimaginable beauty sits alongside our most primal fears. 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...

Great, thriller
21 September 2014 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I watched the world premier at TIFF! I was on the edge of my seat for the entire movie! Missy Peregrym, put on yet another phenomenal performance, while Jeff Roop, was an unknown surprise. The chemistry between these two was tangible! Right from the first scene, both actors patient on a show which made you feel like you just along for the ride, and not watching a movie.

Along with the acting, Adam MacDonald's directing produced a movie that was REAL. It was not a cheap, corny film which Canadians have come to expect from Canadian film makers. After watching this movie, I was proud to call myself Canadian! Adam MacDonald's use of his own unique cinematic style, was spectacular, and somehow made gruesome and grotesque scenes almost seem beautiful!

I highly recommended this movie if you enjoy a movie that will keep you guessing the entire time, and that will send chills down your spine!

ENJOY, and thank you Backcountry for making an amazing Canadian FILM!
