    Im assuming you are talking about this movie.If so,It is a campy film with very little gore at all.I watch it on vhs about once a year.Kind of hope someone would put this one out on dvd along with Schoolgirls in chains also by the same director Don Jones.

    This movie is one of my favorites and I recently even found an original theatrical poster for it.....how odd is that?

    Good Movie. Has a lot of diff. themes going on.

    It's a Slasher/Drama/ghost story all wrapped in one, and for the most part, it works well. Great scenery, good direction, and some effective and creepy moments. Not as good as 'Don't Go In The Woods', but still a good movie.

    I'd give it a 7/10.

    Just saw this one recently. I'm a pretty big slasher fan, but this one was lame. The ghost idea doesn't fit and comes off as pretty ridiculous. The music (if you can even call it that) is atrocious. Worst of all, the movie is incredibly boring. Slashers shouldn't be boring. The only thing worth watching this for is some amusing cheese. There's nowhere near enough of that for it to get a recommendation though.

    I'm sure I'll be giving this a rental, maybe a purchase if I can get a good price.

    On an semi-related note, I did a search for "The Forest" on Deep Discount DVD and it came up with this...

    One of the best descriptions for a movie. Ever.

    Which will probably turn out to be December 7 knowing Media Blasters and their actual release dates.
