Scary, suspenseful and captivating!

By k8bold
The Forest had a captivating storyline, as well as scary and surprising moments. The acting was a little off at times but overall the suspense and creepiness was on point. Great twist, I recommend...

no. just no.

wtf? what did I just watch? this movie was so slow a guy let out a huge snore in the theater. make up your own mind but it was neither scary to me nor a worthwhile movie to see....

Just alright.

This was a fun movie to take your bigger kids (12-14) to get a couple of screams but nothing too intense at all. We enjoyed it fine but definitely for a younger audience....

Creepy with a good twist!!

OMG! This is a horrible movie. The usual crap to make you jump. I will never get the two hours back in my life I wasted seeing it. Wait till it comes out on Netflix etc and then DON'T watch it. ...

Not good. Movie moved too fast then too slow. Story was ho-hum....

It wasn't scary or thrilling. It was actually really boring and predictable. Whenever something 'scary' would happen the theatre would laugh. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone...

I love it
