The fate of five local college students who went missing in the infamous Spiritual Woods is finally unraveled as previously unreleased footage is made public for the first time. Long thought to be dead, the truth turns out to be much worse.
SPIRIT IN THE WOODS is a found footage, horror-suspense film based on the stories of Aokigahara, better known around the world as Suicide Forest. As a final assignment for their biology class, a group of college students decide to venture out into the Spiritual Woods, a purportedly paranormal hot-spot in the northern Ohio area. Although the woods are the stuff of urban legend around town, with tales of pure evil dating all the way back to the dark ages, the five friends are undeterred. What starts off as a fun adventure soon takes a turn for the worse. When darkness begins to settle in over the woods, the friends find themselves lost, as the terror all around them begins to mount with each passing second. Determined to survive the night by sticking together, they soon come to realize that the Spiritual Woods have plans of their own. By the end of the night, they'll have come face to face with their worst nightmares.Written by
This is, quite possibly, the worst movie I have ever seen. I watched it to the end which was nothing short of excruciating. I wanted to make sure I didn't actually miss anything - good. I didn't. Not a single scene had ONE redeeming quality. The acting, by everyone involved, was terrible. I don't mind a slow burn of a movie, hand held camera work, etc. But this movie is painfully boring, pointless, aimless and ridiculous. I saw some people comparing it to "The Blair Witch Project." but let's be fair. That movie was creepy and good and unique (for its time). Comparing "Spirit in the Woods" to it is like comparing a perfect apple to a rotten orange. Skip it.
