Natalie Dormer enough said. I have been meaning to watch this one specifically because she is in this. Also because the Suicide Forest is such an interesting topic. Too bad this is only PG-13. Hopefully that doesn't hinder it. Oh interesting it's directed by the writer of The Houses October Built. It took three writers to script this which isn't usually the best of signs. Nick Antosca is writing t... read more

THE FOREST GIVES, THE FOREST TAKES Aokigahara forest, also known as suicide forest is one of the creepiest and supernatural places on earth. It's history and people urge to make suicides there, have somehow always interested me. Actually, all abnormal things and places in the world has always intrigued me. The premise of the movie was good. I think it was an interesting idea to take this mystical ... read more

2016 Films - Worst 10 (20 movies items)

" You could make an effective horror film with mature themes in it with the premise of The Forest. Sadly, The Forest is not that film. Taking place in a forest that i well-known for being a place that people go into to commit suicide, this film only occasionally hints at being willing to delve into much deeper and darker themes. Instead it goes for option of creating a traditionally clichéd spooky horror film with poorly edited jump scares and an ending that's as bad as it is predictable."

Worst Movie Theater Experiences (7 movies items)

"This is hands down, the worst theater experience I've had so far. I made the unfortunate mistake of going to see this film on Friday night. The theater was packed with mostly teenagers, and having seen hundreds of movies in theaters, I can guarantee you that teenagers are the worst acting people in a movie theater. I was sitting almost at the top of the theater, when the film started. All throughout the movie, this group of teenagers behind me, would laugh, and scream and talk to each other and "

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

" 5 January. A forest in Japan where people go to die. A woman seeks the disappearance of her twin sister. What could've been a worthy premise turns to a nightmare on how to deliver the goods. There are some unnerving jumpy bits but the story never quite captured the macabre of its setting and certainly what the trailer has promised. Sad that a movie set in the horror capital of Asia did so. "
