SynopsisThere is a myth that in the heart of Miranda Forest there dwell beautiful nymph creatures that were once angels. Thrown out of heaven after they became infected with human emotions of lust and sexual desire they now roam the forest, luring in unsuspecting victims with their beauty before seducing them and then gruesomely killing them. Now six teenagers are going to discover that there is more to this story than just myth.
Johannes Roberts is the stylish and sophisticated director of the fantastically hellish story “Hellbreeder”, and the follow-ups “Sanitarium” and “Darkhunters”. “Forest of the Damned” has the same ethereal and dreamy quality as his previous films, but without the deeply moving emotional connections many of his characters make.
Tom Savini stars in this British take on the whole “House in the Middle of Nowhere” tale that is the center of so many independent horror films. True, “Forest of the Damned” has a much higher production value than most independent films (or at least it seems that way), and the acting, dialogue, and special effects are superior by far to what usually is presented to horror fans, but there are several elementary flaws in “Forest” that just don’t put it up in the highest rung of exceptional experimental horror that so recently has been hitting the theaters.
