LOT OF SPOILERS! Just another horror film with characters doing stupid stuff to get themselves into trouble.

If the two hikers had been moderately intelligent outside of their occupational task (landscaper and lawyer)this would have been a boring movie. But this movie follows most horror flicks with the traditionally easy 'most everyone is an idiot' formula. Why would you take the risk of not taking the free 2oz. map with you? Why would you ever leave your girlfriends cellphone at the car and not even tell her? Yes, it probably wouldn't have reception but maybe it would? Why would you not check your newly smashed big toe as soon as you injured it? Why would you ever invite a guy into your camp who is one banjo away from deliverance and then let him be the alpha male with your girlfriend? Why would you not heed natures blatant warning of the large bear print? And lets stake our tent at the summit during a thunderstorm why don't we. Why would you have your axe/weapon 15 feet away when you know a bear is the area? And how easy is it to remember that you have bear spray right next to you and why wouldn't you unload it as much as you can into the bears face? As soon as she started running from the bear after waiting around and risked getting that diamond ring I knew her head was a rock magnet. And sure enough, boom goes the head. I won't comment on anything else but it just seems like writers have gotten lazy with horror films. Maybe try having intelligent and experienced characters that do, for the most part, the right thing but because of outside factors they get into a predicament. Could be more believable and you wouldn't end up hating the characters because of their stupidity.

Really good...

Been a long time since i have watched a movie and felt real fear in the pit of my stomach as a result, but there it is. Back Country kept my attention well enough to keep me watching, maybe because i wanted to see what happened to the couple, or maybe because i like the outdoors. Hmm? Dunno but in the end i am glad i watched Back Country. I am a horror fan, and a thriller fan, and , well a movie fan all around, but lately i have been trying to watch a movie that made me feel frightened, and scared deep in my stomach. Weird? maybe, but that is how i used to feel when i watched a truly scary movie unlike now when i find myself grossed out and feeling a little like a just watch something illegal more often than not. Maybe i am becoming jaded? who knows, who cares! This movie made me feel that old nervous and butterflies in my stomach kind of scared so i am grateful! Watch Back Country and enjoy yourself because i sure as heck did!

Relationships can be a bear

Greetings again from the darkness. When the poster for a new movie compares itself to a genuine classic like JAWS, it immediately evokes skepticism and doubt. The first feature film from writer/director Adam MacDonald is based on a true story and somehow blends elements of horror and man vs. nature into a suspense-filled, gory, survivalist tale of a messy relationship.

Alex (Jeff Roop) has romantic visions as he and girlfriend Jenn (Missy Peregrym) head off into a Canadian Provincial Park for backpacking and camping. Alex can't wait to show his citified girl his favorite lake lookout … the place he used to hike in his youth. It doesn't take long for the cracks to start showing- both in the relationship and in Alex's outdoorsman skills. With the slow build of dread, we know the couple is headed for something unpleasant … thanks to the preview, and the fact that a movie about a relaxing camping trip would be pretty boring.

The Park Ranger (Nicholas Campbell) just shakes his head as Alex refuses his offer of a trail map … a not so subtle jab at men for never asking directions. That combined with Alex poking fun at Jenn's road flare, bear spray and cell phone usage provide the foreshadowing necessary for any viewers who appreciate being told where the story is headed. After a canoe ride, the couple hikes to the camp site where they encounter their first brush with nature: a rugged Irish guide (Eric Balfour) who offers his catch of the day served with a heavy dose of machismo. We are left to wonder if and when and how this creepy dude might again appear.

Of course, it's only a matter of time until the couple is lost and we (and they) realize that's the least of their concerns. See, their lack of communication has landed them right in the middle of black bear country … hungry black bears. A couple's worst nightmare (a weekend with an incompatible partner) turns into a camper's worst nightmare (being hunted by a bear). It's at this point that Ms. Peregrym takes over the movie and we finally have someone to pull for.

Director MacDonald does follow the Jaws template in teasing us with danger and not showing the bear until deep into the movie, but any other comparison would be quite a stretch. Still, there is plenty of tension and we even get that odd line between horror and humor – involving Jenn's diamond grab in the heat of the moment. Nothing is held back in the fight between man and bear, and we see more than enough in the aftermath.

The park makes for an incredibly beautiful setting and a stunning backdrop for hiking and canoeing and bear fighting. The film could have been titled "Dummies Go Camping", but really the commentary on modern relationships is probably more telling than the reminder of Nature's power. Finally, a tip of the cap to Mr. MacDonald for including the Dwight Twilley song "Looking for the Magic" in the initial car trip … great song and fitting to the theme.
