A young couple Alex (Jeff Roop), who seems to have trouble holding a job, and Jenn (Missy Peregrym) who is a hyper-busy executive, are looking forward to taking a break from the big city decide to go camping in the Canadian wilderness. Jenn isn’t a seasoned camper like Alex but she agrees to let him take her to one of his favourite spots, the secluded Blackfoot Trail. On their first night, they have a strange encounter with a guy named Brad (Eric Balfour). By the time they’re on their third day trekking in the forest, they still haven’t reached the Blackfoot Trail and Alex has to admit he’s gotten them lost. Without food or water, they struggle to get their bearings and find their way out of the woods, when terror sets in.

Backcountry had its World Premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
