Backcountry feels real

5 second plot: A guy takes his girlfriend on a hiking trip into the woods. It's her first time camping or hiking but he came here a lot when he was a kid. He doesn't need a map and bears don't scare him, but of course, they get lost. And if that's not bad enough, they step into the territory of a huge angry bear.

5 second review: There's a whole lot of walking and a whole lot of talking (and a whole lot of nothing), but when the bear arrives on the scene, you will shit your pants. I know I did. This is not your typical slasher horror. It feels real. This feels like it could happen to me next week when I go hiking in the woods.
