Synopsis:

Now a major motion picture based on a true story.

A romantic camping trip takes a deadly turn when Jenn and Alex become lost in the remote Canadian wilderness. With no map or cellphone, and running low on food and water, the couple unknowingly stumble into a predatory black bear’s territory—where being lost suddenly becomes the least of their worries.

And when they are eventually cornered by the terrifying animal, Jenn is faced with a horrifying choice—stay with Alex and defend herself as best she can or try to survive on her own.

Backcountry is the haunting story of a woman who finds the courage to survive in the face of almost certain death.

Praise for the movie Backcountry

“A must-see. Does for the woods what Jaws did for the ocean.” Matt Boiselle, Dread Central
