Movie Info

The Forest of the Lost Souls is a dense and remote forest, Portugal's most popular place for suicide. In a summer morning, two strangers meet within the woods. Ricardo (Jorge Mota) is a sad old man, who gave up on life when his older daughter, Irene (Lilia Lopes), took her life in a romantic pact gone wrong in the glacier lake that rests hidden deep in the forest. Carolina (Daniela Love) is an eccentric, unstable young girl who finds all things related to death are fun. As bumping into each other puts them off killing themselves, they decide to go for a walk to discover The Forest of the Lost Souls and see what they will find. As they walk deeper into the woods, they get to know each other and become friends: but one of them is not being honest, one of them is a dark and horrible person.

The Forest of Lost Souls is a worthwhile horror experience thanks to its grounded story, Lopes' assured direction, Lobo's beautifully surreal cinematography, Gracio's retro creepy musical score and Love's standout lead performance.

It's the sort of movie that sticks with you not only for the turns it takes, but for the way its horror elements encroach on our day-to-day feelings of safety and security.
