The mainstream of the tales is around the Forest of Aokigahara, it is a forest in the Mount Fuji in Japan at the northwest bottom, which is really famous for people that want to commit suicide. The American woman, Sara Price take a phone call coming from a Japanese police and telling her that they supposed her twin sister Jess, who seemed troubled is dead, because she was seen on her way to the Aokigahara forest. In spite of the fear of Rob, she fiancé, she insisted on going to Japan and arrived at the hotel that her sister stayed.

At the hotel, Sara meet-up with Aiden, the reporter. They mutually drink, and she told him about her parents’ passing away because of driving drunk and got into an accident, which her sister saw, but she did not. Aiden invited her to go into the forest together with Michi, a park guide, and him so she can search for her sister. When the three goes in the Aokigahara, Michi told Sara that Jess also has most likely slay herself. Sara rejects to believe this; clearing how being her twin she can sense that Jess is not dead. Deep in the forests, the crowd locates the yellow tent that Sara identifies as Jess’s. When the evening is nearly approaching, Michi suggested that they must leave a memo for Jess and then leave. Sara rejected the idea, and Aiden volunteered on staying with her throughout the night.


That evening, Sara perceived some rustling in the greenery, and considering that it can be Jess, hurried into the forests after her. Sara locates Hoshiko, the Japanese girl, who claimed that she know Jess. Hoshiko warned Sara not to fully trust Aiden and run away at the echo of his voice. Sara tries to run after her, but fell down and loses her. The following day, Sara and Aiden became lost and started to walk in the woods. When they are walking, Sara’s doubts were rising and demanded Aiden to hand back her his phone and will look for a photo of Jess on the phone. Aiden rejected any concerns with Jess, but Sara goes into the woods alone. While moving she started to perceive voices that told her to turn her back. She seemed to be unfazed with this until she overhears the voice straight behind her. She turned around to witness a hang remains, and goes on running away. She fell into the underground cave and went on unconscious, later she woke up and find out that she is inside the cave together with Hoshiko, who happened to be Yūrei. Hoshiko then happens to what seemed to be a “devil figure”. Sara then rushes in the opposite way to what seems to be Aiden. Aiden locates her and assisted her out from the cave, together with some persuasiveness, they go on walking together.

The Writers’ View:

The Forest is a little bit efficient in making atmosphere, particularly during the late evening and early morning scenario when the woods became less a compilation of trees, leaves and branches, and more of the abstract maze. The movie issue is originated in the screenplay, and for the character dealings and the set-up to be at once successful, or at least harmonious, they needed to be developed equally. Originally, the screenwriter trio made this right by providing Sara sufficient time just before she goes to the forest to permit her personality to unlock to get to know by the viewers. We get to be acquainted with and her sister’s background after she encountered Aiden and the audience takes a hold with their characters nicely.

Abruptly, Charlie, a salesman through door-to-door, came out and inquires about using her bathroom. Contrary with her opinion, Francisca’s mother allowed him to enter their house. After a resist, Charlie killed the mother and he gets injured, most probably by Francisca’s father, who came home when Charlie was still an attack with her in the bathtub. The father seemed at peace with this happening and chained Charlie at the barn. Her father and Francisca buried her mother in their backyard. Charlie explained the unique thrill of murdering others. Off the cam, Francisca has taken out the vocal cords and the eyes of Charlie’s and placed them in a bag and onscreen, she placed it inside the refrigerator. Francisca clarifies to Charlie that he has not been destroyed because he is the only friend she has and she takes care of him.

Lucy was stabbed by Francisca before admiring her deceased mother and watched over to Lucy’s son and takes her as her own, and she gave the baby a name Antonio. Just like Charlie, Lucy’s vocal cords and eyes were taken out by Francisca on screen through a surgery.

The Writers’ View:

It dares the belief that most movie makers may make dozens of movies throughout their profession, garnering skills the whole time, and never create a movie half as good as this one. Then somebody that just came and new in the industry and tries his very first attempt and then give us a masterpiece. Nicolas Pesce on his directing and writing debut showed the masterful control and true class of his story. Each scene is wonderfully laid out and appearing his own way. The film is a truly work of a master of art and not a novice.

One of the many things you will love in this film is that it never insults their viewers. The first 2/3’s of the movie were so strong that it is almost expected to be down by the concluding third. It seemed that movies struggle be constantly good and even better throughout, but normally ended mucking up at a portion of the story. The modern horror movie tends to rely heavily on jump fright. But this movie makes their final third strongest of all. There is no single jump scares in the movie and yet, it is absolutely scary and memorable of up to 99% of the total horror movies being now.

Police official Jong-goo, who is examining the case, encounter a strange young lady named as Moo-myeong, who told him regarding the Japanese outsider, and then later disappears. The local hunter told Jong-goo that he noticed the near-naked guest eating the deer, with red glowing eyes.

Furious, he smashed out the stranger’s worship room and then murdered the dog when it comes to him, ordering the outsider to leave their village.

The Writers’ View:

The director, battles on finding a good tonal balance. During those times of pitch perfect and during the other moments all over the spot, the tone battles on being consistent. For the primary third of the movie, it is initially a funny film with brief bursts of violence and depravity. The comedy worked so well and the viewers are laughing many times. Then when a terrible imagery came up it was just sudden and so effective. There was the natural balance here, but it seemed lost with the next act. The comedy became slapstick and it did not fit in the rest of the movie. The artists became on-the-top and their acting is somewhat not on the ways expected from them and really different from their introduction.

This film is the first English-language horror movie of director André Øvredal. The story is about a father-and-son experience as coroners with encounters to supernatural phenomena during their examination with the body of the nameless woman Olwen Kelly.

The Cast Lists:

Brian Cox played as Tommy Tilden

Emile Hirsch played as Austin Tilden

Ophelia Lovibond played as Emma

Olwen Catherine Kelly played as Jane Doe

Parker Sawyers played as Officer Cole

Michael McElhatton played as the Sheriff Sheldon Burke

The Story Line:

There is an unidentified dead body of a woman that was located half-buried in the underground of a house wherein a bizarre and bloody homicide had happened. One from the policemen concluded that there were no marks of enforced entry and the dead seemed to be attempting to escape from the house instead. The small-town coroner or investigator Tommy Tilden together with the assistance from his son Austin has ended the autopsy of the burned corpse, then, suddenly Emma, Austin’s girlfriend, came and became curious about the dead bodies at the morgue.


When she saw the tied bell at the ankle of the dead body, Tommy explained to her that, formerly, the bells were applied to give a signal if somebody was just in a comatose condition instead of them really dead. The police arrived with the strange body and told Tommy that he needed the COD or cause of death report the next morning. Austin decided to assist his father instead of going out with Emma going to the theater, but he still asked her to come back after hours. Since the body’s identification is still unknown and the fingerprints were not on the records of the police, they refer the dead as Jane Doe. Tommy and Austin began with the autopsy through the external inspection of the corpse. They noticed that there were no visible signs of scars or marks and trauma. They found out that her eyes were cloudy, and this only happens when the bodies were already dead for a couple of days, but still the corpse appears fresh. Her ankle bones and wrist were shattered having no outward signs of injury and the tongue has been removed non-surgically.


 The Writers’ View:

The film was a lighthearted movie. It is a father and a son mortician type of movie. The director wonderfully succeeded in the initial creation of a comfortable environment, together with the little casting of characters and the setting of scenarios, and then masterfully began upping the discomfort heights of the situation, until the moment came that you are finally sitting on the boundary of your seat, and biting your nails at the same time. Like in the former movies of Øvredal’s, which describe as what you can’t see may be a million periods more disturbing than what is seen with our plain sight, but here he applied it both; the great atmosphere, great characters, and an overall impressive experience.

The Writers’ View:

At first, you will not be aware about what to expect from this film since it became so hard to take seriously some movie sharks. The Shallows however, is the best shark film for me ever since the Jaws and honestly speaking, it is the best image feature in ages!

In only 85 minutes, the film gives their most and provided a tension, stress, gripping, inducing film that will continue keep you from the edge of where you are seated. Blake Lively here is definitely on her way to the stardom, as she carried the whole movie and was able to perform well without the need to speak, and that is totally insane and hard to do for some that is not so good enough. In this movie, you will surely care about her and you will also want her character here to survive. This film is so smart and the movie director is deserving of all the credits we can give in creating this film as one of the best. Honestly speaking, this movie made it a well done classic in this genre.

The aged couple showed Greta a kind of porcelain doll that they named as Brahms and treated like their own son. Throughout the next day, this couple trained Greta about the right way on how to take care Brahms and their house, leaving her some rules listed to follow, and then leaves to have a holiday.

Originally, Greta was doing a normal routine life and ignored the rules. She habitually calls Sandy, her sister, who was telling her that her rude ex-husband Cole was trying to discover where she really is. Malcolm stopped over to give the groceries, and Greta discovered then that the actual Brahms was murdered 20 years ago through a fire during his 8th birthday. Greta then accepted Malcolm’s proposal to show the town to her and ignored the rules again, and prepared herself for the date. But, she was attracted by an odd noise in the attic and then locked up.


Malcolm locates where she was and they briefly talked about the actual Brahms. Weird things started to happen like phone calls that were cut off, a child’s sob that is being heard at the hallways, and the doll that seemed to move personally, and vanishing and reappears elsewhere inside the house. After taking a phone call wherein the child’s voice insists over her to go over the rules, Greta locked herself inside the room.

The Writers’ View:

The movie is a kind that was set from a sequel, but the rest of the film was beautifully paced and stylized, it is a suspenseful and troubling ’60’s British created thrills with an added surprise finale and faster pace. From the start, Cohan rarely makes bad decisions with movie choices like this because she makes it really believable, like what she does with the other horror movies. This film was written, acted and photographed maturely, reminding everyone of a real Twilight Zone chapter that slowly unfolds and revealed the layers of mysteries within the movie. There were still more questions that will be answered as the film progresses through the end that will permits the viewer to fill in their imagination.

The Writers’ View:

The real star of the movie is John Goodman, however, in one of his best performances in a later year, Goodman maintain the viewer’s eyes glued on the screen and will makes you totally engaged throughout.

This film started promisingly together with unsettling image and a very eye-catching. The initial 80% of the movie’s tale is obvious and trite: the final series is ludicrous. Perhaps it is alleged to be a metaphor or there are some kinds of metaphysical commentary. It is still ludicrous. If you are someone who has been slightly engaged while watching, then you will be left with unanswered questions of bagfuls of queries afterwards. It is still important that every detail is watch and understood!

Doris contacted the board for assistance, believing she was talking with the dead father and a spirit lead her to the secret cubicle behind the underground room containing the pouch of cash.

When the Ouija board answered a query that only Roger knows the answer, a thrilled Alice started to believe that they are really in contact with her departed husband.


The Writers’ View:

There are so many things to like in this movie. First, it was set in the 1960s, then, people that time are putting too much effort just to put on clothes and go to a supermarket. There is also the heart of the story, the wife that lost her husband, the kids that lost their dad, the priest that lost his wife, and so the hole in the souls creates a basis for why each of them have the longing or wanting to speak with their departed loved ones. This is the real reason why the spirit is taking advantage of them.

The drive is terrific and all problem-solving were created, because some were not seen before. The personality arc of the main artist from being a narcissistic, anti-hero to becoming a titular hero is very effective.
