Wild Eye Releasing provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.
|Two strangers meet in a forest notorious for suicides and decide to learn more about each other. Soon it becomes clear that one of them is there for a much more disturbing reason, and is actually a psychotic killer there to prey upon others and end their sorrow for them.|
SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.25/5
|The DVD comes with an Audio Commentary with writer-director José Pedro Lopes; Fight Rehearsal Footage (2:49) between Caroline and Filipa; a couple Deleted Scenes (1:35) with commentary; St. John Short Film (1:16); and the Teaser.|
VIDEO – 4.0/5, AUDIO – 3.75/5
|The movie is presented in 1.78 anamorphic widescreen and is shown in stark black and white which looks really good and does give the movie the right mood. The disc has a fine if not adequate PCM 2.0 track.|
OVERALL – 3.0/5
|Overall, The Forest of the Lost Souls has somewhat similar themes to The Sea of Trees and, to some extent, The Forest. The movie, thanks to the black and white picture, does have a haunting feel to it and the film as a whole, while not perfect, does pull you in.|
