Lousy acting in a already seen story
23 October 2018 | by davish_wulf-1See all my reviews

I wonder if a non-portuguese viewer has the notion of how bad the acting was in this movie. People do not talk like this in Portugal and the actors were comical to say the least, the dialogues unrealistic and the emotion just wasn't there. Predictable story, done 2 times before already in a supposedly suicidal forest that doesn't exist at all in the country (make no mistake, the forest is real, just doesn't have a suicidal history attached to it). Suicidal people tend to not lock their cars before committing suicide, wear make-up as if they were going to a night club and talk like they were reading the ingredients of a chocolate-milk package. There are way better movies out there regarding suicide, spirits and stalkers, this is not one of them. Even the black and white does not save this comical effort... next!
