Whether it is a psychodrama or a ghost story, Song Il-Gon's heady blend of mixed-up memory, desperate loss and overwhelming guilt will have viewers returning to its primal scene again and again in search of answers.

Spider Forest is interesting enough and watchable, but it lacks that aha! moment that those who stick with such a confusing story deserve in the end.

Audience Reviews for Spider Forest

Interesting premise, good start, but the story is told in the most cryptic way possible. Far from engaged i was a bit annoyed and hardly that interested in the characters.

Purposefully confusing with a a scattered narrative that takes in flashbacks of events, flashbacks of stories, dreams and more. As the story unfolds it's obvious as to where it is going, but at least the journey is full of surprises and some fantastic scenery. It's a beautiful film in terms of look and how it slowly unravels. The script does an excellent job of creating empathy towards the characters and the symbolism is left for you to piece together yourself rather than too many blatant explanations.
