NEW YORK, May 12 -- Danny Nucci ("World Trade Center"),

in the Spike original movie, "Backwoods," premiering on Sunday, June 8 from

"Backwoods" is a terrifying thriller centered on a group of young
colleagues who set out for a fun company retreat in the remote woods, only
to find themselves hunted by the unknown and fighting for their lives. Each
year, Global Gaming invites seven up-and-coming employees to participate in
a company-sponsored weekend getaway to challenge their survival skills and
build camaraderie. Knowing that this is their chance to make a good
impression, Perry (Nucci), Lee (Duff), Adam (Merriman) and several others
leave the city behind and prepare themselves for some friendly, competitive
games. However, upon arrival, they split into two teams and immediately
begin to notice that things aren't quite right. The uneasiness quickly
turns to horror when one team loses its way and the members find themselves
under attack. The surviving team must now fight to save its friends, all
while being viciously hunted in the booby-trapped backwoods.
