    Backcountry 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Mar, 2015

    Backcountry serves as a great reminder as to why I'm quite alright with not being an "outdoorsy" type.

    No, please don't kill me Mr. Ghostface. I want to be in the sequel!

    Do you remember the first time you saw Scream?

    I was still in high school in 1996. I went to the theatre to see Scream with a group of friends, some of whom were already seeing it for the second time.

    I was definitely not as into film then as I am now. But it looked scary and fun, and my favorite actress just happened to…
