The For­est

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW - OW

two el­e­ments bring colour to this anaemic hor­ror: its ba­sis in a gen­uine Ja­panese leg­end, and great work from Natalie Dormer as twin sis­ters. Sadly, the screen­play treats the Aoki­ga­hara For­est — no­to­ri­ous as a des­ti­na­tion for the sui­ci­dal — with all the sen­si­tiv­ity of the Amer­i­can tourist it sends blun­der­ing through it, but man­ages a few scares.
