When Bears Attack: First Trailer for the Nature Thriller 'Backcountry'
Stephen Colbert has always had an inherent fear of bears (at least until he made peace with them before the end of his show), so the latest man vs. nature thriller Backcountry would probably be the most terrifying thing next to encountering a real bear. The film played at TIFF to some pretty solid reviews, and now it's poised to hit limited theaters this spring. The thriller follows Missy Peregrym and Jeff Roop as a couple who end up being terrorized by a man-eating bear while on a romantic camping trip. It's clearly a monster tale on the scale of Jaws or Jurassic Park, and if you're timid about camping this won't help. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Adam MacDonald's Backcountry, originally from Apple:
Backcountry is written and directed by Adam MacDonald. Hyper-busy executive Jenn (Missy Peregrym) and her sporadically employed boyfriend Alex (Jeff Roop) are preparing to take a break from the big city for a few days of camping. But when they have an unsettling encounter with Brad (Eric Balfour), wandering through the woods alone, Alex decides to take an impromptu detour — one that leaves them at the mercy of the forest, and god knows what else. The film played at TIFF and hits limited theaters on March 20th.
