  2. seohyun's rating of the film The Forest

    It feels sad and in poor taste that they decided to make a terrible horror film set in Aokigahara forest. Maybe if the film was well made, built a certain atmosphere and didn't rely on jump scares I wouldn't have minded so much. The movie fails at capturing the sadness of a top suicide destination, instead it feels like it was made to cash in on the history of the place and the fact that people commit suicide there.

  5. Ashen's rating of the film The Forest

    The way main character handles her emotions is painfully unrelatable. She's aloof and disconnected when dealing with sensitive subjects which makes her performance unappealing and rigid. Not a movie I'd recommend.

  7. Stefano De Putti's rating of the film The Forest

    idea intelligente sprecata tra jump scare inutili e fastidiosi e una trama prevedibilissima fin da subito

  8. Justerodeusintherain's rating of the film The Forest

    Had a lot of potential that wasn't used. Beautiful setting. awful abrupt ending. Found that the 'scariest' bits were the ones already in the trailer therefore the film itself wasn't scary at all.

  9. Inês M Almeida's rating of the film The Forest

    this could be sooooo much better.

  10. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film The Forest

    An ok effort bordering on decent. The story and setting is full of potential that is not well realized in screen. The actors are OK and are not helped by the trite dialogue. What keeps things afloat is the beautiful photography and pretty good third reel. Shame that the director feels compelled to dumb this down for the teens when there is a mature story of grief behind the jump scares.

  11. João R's rating of the film The Forest

    While this created a stimulating construction, in terms of switching between the possibilities of being placed in the supernatural or murder's realm, it's nothing special - the second half waits until its final sequences to finally deliver a yet satisfying ending and the jumpscares are lazy and forced (and I won't forgive that final one).

  13. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Forest

    Can't recall the last time I was this indifferent about a film. The problem with this film is in order to have a successful, or at least harmonious, relationship between the characters and the setting, you need to make a film that has an affinity for both. The only character interest we get is perfunctory (and cruelly unresolved at the end) and the forest feels mostly like a backdrop rather than a character.
