Originally shot as a TV series, 2019’s The Boonies is now available on demand as a movie that condenses the episodes to one singular film. It’s all about a group of kids in Boone, Texas who were once childhood pals who’ve grown apart. When one of them dies, they all go on a journey to discover how that happened and where his fortune has gone to.
The Boonies was written and directed by Brad T. Gottfred, who posits a school of different cliques all out to take that money too, as well as five former friends who must find their way back together.
The actress who played Holly, Andi Matichak, who go on to play Allyson in the new Halloween films. Calum Worthy, who was so good in the Netflix series The Act, is also in this. The cast is all uniformly fun and this ends up being much better than I anticipated.
You can find The Boonies streaming now.
