Very enjoyable movie, great scares and great acting!
this was a hit movie for me the best i've seen so far coming from the horror genre, the location in the movie is based on true facts and history in japan based on the forest. This movie had its scares and was very scary for some of the audience, also the environment was so vast and large and beautiful for such a dark and thrilling movie! The acting was very well done for the main actors and also had myself on the edge of my seat about the main characters sister even though they were searching for her. I highly recommend this movie for people who like dark thrilling horror films with a twist. I give this movie a 8 out of 10 it was short but enough time to keep the story from dragging.
