The Forest

Here’s the plot to The Forest:

“Don’t go into the forest. If you, don’t leave the path. If you leave the path, definitely don’t stay there after dark.”


*runs in random circles through the forest for hours*

I expected to feel a little annoyed by the cultural appropriation aspect of yet another white lead in a Japanese set horror movie, but actually what became my biggest annoyance was that not since The Blair Witch Project have I seen a main character just make consistently awful decisions throughout the entirety of the picture. Points for nice filming, obviously a beautiful location, but it was over-reliant on jump-scares.
