The only thing that makes this movie decent is Natalie Dormer.

If someone wanted to make a serious horror film about the Aokigahara Forest in Japan, I'm sure it could be done but this is too lazy - and even with the talented Natalia Dormer it cannot be saved. Too many cliched horror tropes and not enough of a decent story to care about what happens.

Forgettable, way racist, and extra disappointing if you've ever seen a Japanese forest -- they look nothing like this. From the credits, it seems like it was mostly filmed in eastern europe.

First Worst of the Year

'The Forest' squanders a decent horror premise by reverting to the absolute laziest methods in execution. Every scare is a short pause followed by a "boo". No attempt is given to present actual suspense. It feels as if the terrible scares were carelessly rushed through to get to the next scene. There's no investment in the story or characters. I lost interest in the mystery behind the disappearance of this woman's twin sister at about the halfway point. At least the actors are actually trying. The main flaw here is the storytelling. There are multiple false scare dream sequences from the beginning up until the first night in the forest. After that the movie shifts gears and tries to become psychological horror (with those terrible "boo"s still present). This ...
