Movie Info

A homicide detective, a botanist with some unconventional theories, and his tabloid TV reporter girlfriend attempt to solve a gruesome murder in this high-concept thriller from The Eye and Bangkok Dangerous director Danny Pang. Botany student Steven is convinced that plants are sentient. He's recently written a doctorate paper on the theory, and spends much of his spare time attempting to prove that plants have a language all their own. Steven's girlfriend Mary works for a major television station, and thanks to a series of sensationalistic reports her career is on the upswing. When the Prime Minister's daughter is abducted, raped, and murdered, the police quickly arrest the prime suspect, a man named Eric. But is Eric really guilty of this heinous crime? In order to find out the truth, Steven conducts a series of tests in hopes that the forest itself may provide an eyewitness account of the brutal crime.

Forest of death This movie rocks! It's got every emotional responses from me. Has parts that are scary, sad, and passionant. Since this was an Asian movie we had to read subtitles. that was the only problem I could find with it. The fog In the forest was so creepy and you bond with the characters. The plot was scientificly realistic and had great dialog. there wasn't a dull Moment and wasn't very predictable either. Can't wait to see more of the same movies!
