No matter the setting or menace though, Backwoods Horror is wildly compelling, because who doesn't fear being lost in the boonies while death is breathing down your neck?
- There are plenty of Slasher flicks that are technically Backwoods Horror, but we didn't include them here because they got their own list, and there are plenty true Backwoods Horror movies out there that deserve the attention.
- When it comes to Backwoods Horror flicks, we implore you to check out some of the lesser known titles like Frontiere(s), Rabies, or Rovdyr, if you're looking for something "new" and a bit different.
- Also, don't sleep on The Tourist Trap. Truly creepy stuff.
If you're in the mood for a truly quality Backwoods Horror flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Wolf Creek are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Backwoods Sub-Genre, so enjoy them all!
*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; our review of the movie (when applicable); or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
