Spider Forest Reviews
Some people would call this an absolute mess of a film which could have done with a lot of editing. However what saves this film from being just 'another asian flick' is its iconicness. The acting is brilliant, the main character took about 1/3 of the budget of the film but it was necessary. There are some lovely musical scores and shockingly bad scenes which are executed so well.
This is not a film for the faint-hearted and comparisons could easily be made to that of the Vengeance trilogy in content. Strong language, violence, gore, horror and bucket loads of sex have drenched this film but it managed to acheive a 15 rating in the Uk, the strongest of which i have ever seen.
Overall if you stick at it and have several viewings you still won't understand everything but this is a film which you remember because of the sheer beauty of some of the scenes and acting. Its heartfelt and potrays regret and horror in a brilliantly tragic way.
Give it a go, it has some nice pacing and the supernatural elements are well handled.
The film is very watchable and well worth a rental.
