“The Forest” is one of those films you’ll want to watch in the dark, several times. Take a walk in the Aokigahara Forest or suicide forest in Japan. Setting at the foot of Mt. Fuji, this forest has legends that go back years and years. Many things in this film are taken right from these legends and true happenings of modern day.
The synopsis of “The Forest” is:
A woman goes into Japan’s Suicide Forest to find her twin sister, and confronts supernatural terror.
A set of very different twins are living in two different parts of the word. Natalie Dormer plays the twins and is very good. Jess is the wild child, and yet a teacher in Japan. Jess has been a lost soul. Sara, on the other hand is married. She is solid and feels something is very wrong when the authorities call her to report her sister is missing. As many twins report, Sara felt something was very wrong and headed off to Japan to find Jess.
When Sara arrives, she finds out that Jess disappeared into the Aokigahara Forest. Known as the suicide forest (check out the link, it goes to an article with several realities of the forest which is at the foot of Mt. Fuji).
Sara sets out on a trip that will introduce her to a very handsome man. Also a man who is a guide and also looks for bodies of suicide victims. She will met several beings in the forest. Some seem benign, but are deadly.
Fantastic acting, superior scrip writing and an exciting trip into the forest that is the top destination for suicides in the world.
There are no big time effects, but some creepy, creepy happenings. Who will live, who will die, who has already died? It’s some of the best scary movie stuff I’ve seen in a while. The forest is a character in this film, not a place. It has it’s own lines to say and it says them with death and insanity. Don’t miss this film, it’s well worth it.
