The Forest (2016)
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
This is a decent enough horror with a unique and fairly interesting plot. Natalie Dormer does command the screen and performs great as both Sara and Jess. What I liked was the setting which was absolutely scary and I find the fact the forest is real utterly terrifying 😛 . I enjoyed the narrative and it did have some decent jumpy sections. I liked the tricky ghosts and her “reveal” near the end of the movie was the best section. I loved the ending as it was different, unique and I loved the graphics around that scene (with the ghost). Overall, the graphics were quite good I loved the hints to the ghosts and how they “killed” 😛 . This is more of psychological thriller than a straight out horror which I did quite enjoy. However, it has its flaws too 😛 . The main character much as I loved the actress could be a little annoying and unbearable. I pitied one character because of what Sara does (wouldn’t spoil) and I really did not get Jess. I don’t think it was truly explained why she was there and the ending with that character got slightly cheesy and irritating. A film that had so much promise and potential but trips over its over narrative. However, decent enough horror than can keep you fairly entertained 🙂 Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
