Review:Backcountry (2015) Review:

Good horror movies don’t often come where you would expect them to. Let’s look at this one for example…. another movie with a young couple who goes camping in the woods and gets attacked by a lunatic bear. A few months after the release of the very average Grizzly, I must say my expectation for this one were quite low… and yet here it is: Backcountry is simply the best animal movie I’ve seen in years, if not ever.


What really makes it stand out is the way it is filmed and directed. The camera shots are all very inventive and always assist the viewer in getting into the action. Whether it is disorientation, dizziness, heights, everything is so well expressed with the camera. Thanks to that, the immersion is complete and the movie makes you hold your breath for the all-time. A flawless acting helps to make the movie even more credible. The final result is a movie that is not among the most innovative in terms of story, but that will be remembered for how mesmerizing it is. Thereee are even a few gory bits here and there to spice things up. Now considering that this Adam MacDonald very first full-length feature movie… I would recommend that we all keep an eye on him for the years to come!
