Reviews

The Hollywood Reporter - Justin Lowe
Solid performances from the small cast and robust visuals will be clear selling points with audiences seeking the raw excitement of an elemental survival film.

The Dissolve - Charles Bramesco
[A] solid, well-executed testament to the horrors of the great outdoors.
70
Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
Another way of reading a movie like this is that it channels our ancient hatred of nature while recognizing that it’s essentially nostalgic, and that the occasional hungry ursine cannot compete with the animal we really have reason to fear.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - Bilge Ebiri
While there is some gore late in the film, what makes Backcountry special is the care and patience it invests in its characters and the quiet, haunting tension of its story line.
67
The A.V. Club - Unnamed
Without effective characterization to drive the moments in between, the spectacle of humans painfully, extensively, gratuitously suffering for their arrogance is more sadistic than thrilling.
