A quartet of big city kids (Fergus March, Emily Juniper, John Samuel
Worsey, Rebecca Craven) go into the woods to do a bit of camping, but of
course they have little respect for the forest as such and thus their car
runs over some deer, they steal eggs from a bird's nest and throw away their
garbage in the open. Thus even in their first night, the forest seems to
turn against them, scaring them shitless with a bunch of noises. The next
morning, our four youngsters find a girl, Ketsy (Nina Kwok), sitting at
their campfire, who claims she has lost her boyfriend (David Bryant) in
the woods, but when the others help her looking for him, they one after
the other get lost instead as well, until only Larri (Emily Juniper) is
left standing, and she has to find out it's the forest itself which has
taken her friends, the forest which can take any human form to lure
actual humans into doom. Somehow, Larri can make it back to the car (and
being run over by another car when doing so doesn't affect one bit), fetch a
cannister of gas, and burn down the strip of wood that has seemed to
threaten her and her friends - even if she has to burn to death with it.
wait, is anyone, is she, is the forest really dead?
The last image, in
which Larri seems to grow out of a tree to kill an over-ambitious
lumberjack, suggests no.
Weak and derivative horror flick that
starts out like a Blair Witch
Project rip-off, then takes the teen slasher route to ultimately
lose itself in its eco horror motives that are never developed to the
fullest. That none of the film's three (!) directors was able to create
anything remotely resembling a creepy atmosphere doesn't help the film
much either, nor do the below-average performances by all of the involved
or the uninteresting characters they are forced to play. That all said,
the film is not godawful, just something you shouldn't even bother to see.
