The Forest: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Sara (Natalie Dormer) is worried sick because her twin sister Jess is missing and was last seen on Aokigahara (The Suicide Forest) in Japan. Sara immediately went to Japan, but the locals won't help her because getting inside the forest because it's too dangerous. However, a journalist named Aiden (Taylor Kinney) offered some help and with a local guide, they searched deep into the woods. Soon, they found Jess' tent, but she is nowhere to be found. They need to leave the forest before its dark but Sara insists to stay and wait for Jess, but it isn't the brightest idea as the forest isn't the safest place when the night starts.  

The Forest has an interesting premise but sadly, they didn't capitalize and generate a decent horror picture. The idea is there, and the eerie setting is already a good sign. However, they opted to stay flat and produce cliched and mediocre horror thrills that aren't actually scary.  The film is lost for its own good deep inside their bland and predictable plot. The characters aren't interesting too. You won't care on what will happen to them as they make stupid decisions all the time.    

Overall, The Forest is a weak horror movie that isn't worthy of your time and money. Natalie Dormer did her best but couldn't produce and sustain enough thrills to make this movie afloat. I should have locked myself inside the basement for 20 minutes instead of 90 minutes waiting for something scary to happen.
