EXCLUSIVE: Writer-director Adam MacDonald’s thriller Backcountry world premieres Monday in Toronto’s Discovery section. The pic, based on a true story, stars Rookie Blue‘s Missy Peregrym and Jeff Roop as a couple who become lost while camping in the Canadian wilderness, putting their already-fragile relationship in further peril. That all pales when they realize they have unwittingly entered a bear’s territory. Here’s a clip from the movie, which John Sloss’ Cinetic is selling at the fest. It certainly primes the pump suspense-wise and makes the case for camping out in a big ol’ RV with full hookups and locks on the doors.
