Backcountry

Directed by Adam McDonalad

An urban couple go camping in the Canadian wilderness - where unimaginable beauty sits alongside our most primal fears. Alex is a seasoned outdoorsman while Jenn, 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.

An urban couple go camping in the woods and find themselves lost in the territory of a predatory black bear.

Cast: Jeff Roop, Missy Peregrym, Nicholas Campbell, Eric Balfour

Well done. Among the best animal attack films done in the past two decades because of the human element, story, and the performances. The initial bear attacks are handled with very novel visuals and framing. I can hardly believe I'm seeing this for the first time and it's ten years old already!

This is a bear vs hikers flick with precious little bear scenes. A real letdown after some sterling reviews. See “Cocaine Bear” for a better time if you want bears.

So, it might be a black bear, but they are actually dangerous to a point. They are the least dangerous type of bear, but a bear nevertheless. The story this was based off of was a black bear attack, and the lady actually didn't make it. Her Husband fought it off with a knife, (Ballsy but I would have tried too) and she only died of her wounds while he was trying to get her to safety. This movie kinda does the guy dirty, makes him into a jerk. The 'fake Irish accent guy' is also a jerk. A lot of unnecessary posturing from both of them. It was fun enough to watch and pick apart with my wife, but I wouldn't give it a second watch.

If Grizzly didn't exist this would be humanity's greatest cultural achievement. As things stand it's a close second.
