The Forest, 2012 - ★★

#LIFF27 Another huge disappointment. The LIFF programme said this was "similar in style to Guillermo Del Toro’s films" which is complete rubbish as the only similarities are they are in Spanish and Del Toro made some films set in the civil war.

This may have made a good short film but it's tediously long and only 90 minutes. I couldn't wait for it to end and when there was a knock on the door after what should have been a final fade to black I actually broke my cinema silence to mutter a ffs. What then follows is even more ridiculous and made me hate the film even more.
