Is it a legend, or a myth??? The one question has plagued mankind throughout the ages has always remained, but finally comes to unfold here in a new chilling Thriller. The Native American Indians thought it was fact... they respected, feared it and Believed to be a GOD. Ten Years ago, there was a "Ghost-like something" seen killing people in the dark unforgiving woods as people were culled away one by one and some never to be found. What really happened? This year reports have surfaced that it was all just a "Hoax"... But a local philanthropist believes different and puts a $2.5 Million Dollar Bounty on this "Beast" in the woods and a team of expert hunters go out looking for the "Silent Killer."

This movie should be viewed by any aspiring filmmaker

There is a lot of awful movies, but they usually do fall just in one category of badness. For example the script is bad, actors cannot act, the production values are low, the plot is derivative etc.

Fear the Forest is an unique exception as it combines all the different sorts of badness into single package so you can study them and do not waste your time with different bad movies.

For start there is incredibly messy script with ton of mostly useless side characters. The actors cannot act which would not be that bad unless they are supposed to sound overly dramatic or professional. Then - there is just horrible camera probably held at hand on all times even in situations where the tripod would me most welcome. Crazy use of color filters and effects, every scene looks different. Then we have some really really bad sound recording. I rather do not mention the plot holes or pure inability to build suspension. There is no thrill at all except the thrill of watching really horrid film making.

In summary this is a prime example of too ambitious project with not enough resources or experience to actually finish watchable movie. It is just a pure mess valuable only as a warning for beginners.
