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...

Very suspenseful
21 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be along the lines of a movie called Frozen (a must watch for those that like suspense and thrill)except this one takes place in the woods instead of a ski resort. I love watching a movie where you forget you're watching a movie!I thought the filming was well done and the actors were very believable. The raw emotion and detail in the scenes made me sit and watch and forget to breathe. There were a few unbelievable moments that made me wonder about a scene, like why she did not get her bear mace out sooner and keep spraying. I will have to watch the movie The Edge, it sounds like one I would really like also. This is a really great thriller survival movie!
