Synopsis

Young couple Alex (Jeff Roop) and Jenn (Missy Peregrym) go camping in the Canadian wilderness. Although she's not a seasoned camper like Alex, she agrees to let him take her to one of his favorite 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 Eric 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.

  • 5 stars "Excellent movie, watched it on Netflix. I've spent many years camping, this story makes me never want to go again. This woman was very smart and very brave. I don't think I could have survived as she did. How sad."
  • 3 stars "I enjoyed it"
  • 3 stars "Very slow in the beginning hour. Can't see how people can say they "loved" this movie unless they enjoy watching a bear eat a human being. The girlfriend's escape was the most exciting, interesting and well-being acted."
