    Aokigahara (The Suicide Forest) is a real forest and a real hotspot for paranormal investigators, as both locals and foreigners believe that the forest is a haven for spirits and demons born from the negativity of the premature deaths. Moving on to the actual subject of the film, I honestly thought it was going to be another Asian horror remake, but I was surprised that it was actually produced by a Western company. And frankly, I think this story could potentially work better as an actual Japanese horror film. A search for lost siblings in a forbidden and eerie forest while the protagonist tries her hardest to keep her mind and soul intact and safe from the demons that stalk her sounds a lot like something that the Far East would produce. Not to mention, since Aokigahara is a real place, it just adds more reality to the fear that this film would try to induce. I’m not saying it would be a critical success on either side of the world, but I am saying that it would definitely seem to gel better if the movie was produced by the country it takes place in.

    The title card for this video is the ending to the movie the forest anytime people want you to seethe forest tell them that it ends with the girl main character getting dragged into the leaves by a strange man. Anyway I’ll skip the forest and wait till the Revenant comes to DVD.

  3. The Revenant blew my mind.
