The Boonies is a 2021 American horror film in which campers in the Appalachian woods find themselves in a fight for survival. Unfortunately, they discover they are being hunted by a clan of human flesh-eaters.

Produced and directed by Lance Parkin – making his feature debut – from a screenplay co-written with Matt Schultz.

The BB Mack Productions- Locust Street Entertainment stars James Quinn (The Clearing; No Knock List), Rick Dutrow, Daniel Johnson and Dave McMillan.


“The villains are hillbillies and this movie retreads those old cliché stereotypes which have been done better elsewhere and far more competently. No, where this movie shines for me are in the elements that do not quite work.” SciFi Movie Page

“There are plenty of killings, which, if done right might have made The Boonies a bit more interesting. But they’re shot with no flair and there’s no suspense […] If ninety minutes of things you’ve seen a hundred times before hung on a plot that consists of coincidences and improbabilities is what you’re looking for, The Boonies is your film.” Voices from the Balcony

Release date:
In the USA, Indican Pictures will give The Boonies a limited theatrical release on March 30th 2021 followed by DVD and Digital releases on April 13th.
