Bear with me for a minute, but as a formerly disgruntled backwoods dweller, almost any forest bound horror gets me howling with excitement!
Thus, I was thrilled to hear about IFC Midnight’s Backcountry, the new terror flick detailing what happens when an urban couple goes toe-to-toe with a grizzly. Reviews, from the brief theatrical run in March 2015, highlighted director Adam MacDonald’s nice grip on the tension of the situation and the amazing cinematography, which the official trailer highlights, nicely.
— and, yes, happy horror fans, that was Eric Balfour (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dinoshark, Rise of the Gargoyles) and Nicholas Campbell (The Hitchhiker, The Dead Zone) supporting the young leads!
For those who can’t wait for the film’s physical release in September of 2015, it is now streaming on Amazon, ITunes and other devices. More information is available at https://www.facebook.com/BACKCOUNTRYfilm, as well.
So, until the next time, don’t leave your cell phone in the car while strolling through the nature — and…
SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
