Audience Reviews for The Forest

When i first started this movie i thought it was gonna be another slasher in the woods going after campers pic but it turned out to be a ok movie with slasher elments and a ghost story on top of it. Two couples go into the woods to go camping except there wives go ahead first and are stalked by a madman that is also a cannibal and needs food also throw in the fact that his wifes ghost is around and the ghosts of his two kids trying to help the campers. all and all a ok horror/slasher/ghost story that does lag in someplaces
