THE DEVIL’S FOREST REVIEWED
“The Devil’s Forest” follows filmmakers as they try to document Hoia Baciu. The forest is considered the Bermuda Triangle of Romania and there’s a reason for that. Well, it’s because crappy ghosts effects pop out of nowhere and jump scares abound. Most of the talent is unfamiliar to me, but it’s not like it matters. If you dig atmospheric scares, this will be for you. Honestly, I can name 20 other horror releases this month that I’d rather want to watch. Do with that what you will.

The Plot Thus Far
Based on true events. Rachel Kusza and her team of filmmakers travel to Transylvania to document the Hoia Baciu forest. A forest with a dark history of strange occurrences, ghost sightings and countless cases of missing people. After entering the forest, the film crew were never heard from again. After searching for the film crew for two years, Howard Redman (Rachel’s teacher) found the crews camera buried in the snow. Before taking his own life, Redman uploaded the footage to the internet. It shows the crews dark and horrific journey into the woods; it shows why locals refuse to enter and it shows that you can never escape your past. This video is widely referred to as The Devil’s Forest.
