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...

The morning after meeting the Irishman Jenn gets up to find coffee, and breakfast are already made. Alex pours her a cup of coffee from the pot that is fresh off the fire, into a metal blue enamel cup. She holds it with her hand wrapped around the cup. Either she has no nerves in her hands, or that was not actually fresh, hot coffee. See more »

Simple movie about a bear attack
15 May 2015 | by Mortisha_DeluxeSee all my reviews

This movie could be much shorter and tell exactly the same story. Apart from these long moments it is really not bad. I must say that the lack of explicit gore is a big plus and even tho it is not blood and guts it is scary.

I think that this movie definitely encourages people to take all the possible precautions and to prepare properly for camping in the wilderness. It is a movie about a bear attack no more no less. It shows the fight for survival. The characters are simple and the plot is simple. I don't feel like I lost time watching it but I will most likely not watch it again.
