Horror Movies With Dark Forests

It may be the middle of summer, but with the humidity and heat, some of us are starting to get autumn-itis. It's a common syndrome in which you stop dreaming about beaches and start dreaming about chilly mountains with creeping fog. Here's some movies to watch when you darken your home and pretend it's that most magical time of the year - 

Descriptions from my favorite movie site IMDB.

Incident On and Off a Mountain Road  While driving at night along a lonely road through the mountains, Ellen gets distracted by her radio and hits a car parked on the road. She faints and looks for help since her car does not start again. She meets Moonface pulling a woman in the woods. He's a deranged monster-like man that collects human bodies. She is abducted by Moonface, but she recalls the survival lessons of her husband Bruce as she faces and fights back against the killer. *If you like nighttime dark forests and creepy stalker situations in abandoned buildings and being stranded - this is a great find!*


The Wolfman  Upon his return to his ancestral homeland, an American man is bitten, and subsequently cursed by, a werewolf. *The original version from 1941 was more desolate and a much better plot. This has a dark forest night feel to it.*

Brotherhood of the Wolf  In 18th century France, the Chevalier de Fronsac and his native American friend Mani are sent by the King to the Gevaudan province to investigate the killings of hundreds by a mysterious beast. *This is a gorgeous, sensual, lush movie to watch and if you are okay with foreign films, you are going to love this one*

Sleepy Hollow Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman. *This is perhaps the best of all selections for the autumnal woods, creepy, beautiful factor.*

The Blair Witch Project  Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind. *This has a late November, barren, scary forest feel and if you've ever gone camping, you will feel at home*

The Forest A woman goes into Japan's Suicide Forest to find her twin sister, and confronts supernatural terror. *If you are freaked out by the Suicide Forest, this is a good one*

Dog Soldiers  A routine military exercise turns into a nightmare in the Scotland wilderness. *Beautiful scary forest setting. If you love the woods, it's ideal*

Final Terror  A group of rangers go camping on unfamiliar forest grounds. All is well until the group members begin to start getting picked off by a cunning, tactical, malevolent, killer in the woods. *Great 80s with lots of recognizable stars in the forest being stalked while camping*

The Hallow  A family who moved into a remote mill house in Ireland finds themselves in a fight for survival with demonic creatures living in the woods. *Plenty of creepy forest* 


  1. Ohhh, I don't think I've seen any of these! And, I forgot about the Suicide Forest one, I had wanted to see it, but never was able to coordinate a time w my also horror loving bff, lol, see, we missed it! I had seen that it got not so great reviews, too, so I'm glad to see someone besides a critic, say it's worth seeing! I'm def going to check it out. There is a fantastic documentary on the real Suicide Forest, it's not in English, but it is subtitled, and it's really good. I think I sat, stunned, for the entire thing, and another 20 min after it was over. I normally paint and do other things while a movie or whatever is on in the background... I'm watching, but also doing other things, but not this one. Other than it being sub'd, it's just very interesting to me, the whole thing.
    Just found your blog, btw, via Pinterest, after finding your tutorial on the mirror! Can't wait to try it. I've done one, but used a different method. I used an already old, and worn, mirror, and lightly sanded spots in the back. Then, I applied creepy pics on the back, with mod podge. But, with your idea, I can use ANY glass frame! That's awesome! As I also volunteer at my local Council On Aging's thrift shop, and not only are our prices dirt cheap, we also get half off, for volunteering! So, I'll def be trying this! Now, to get that Looking Glass cheaper! Lol! Thanks for the tutorial! And, considering it was in 2012, I wasn't sure you still posted, as many of the things I find from a couple yrs ago, or more, are usually not active blogs anymore... So, it's good to see a creepy-ish, and Halloween loving, person/blogger/blog is still here! I can't WAIT for Halloween! Lol! And, shhhhhhhhhhh....*whispers* I just pulled the rest my Halloween crafting supplies out, LAST night! Half of it was pulled out, last month! Lol! I'm already looking for it in the craft and dollar stores! Hahaha!!!

    1. I have a Halloween book out that you might like "Adult Halloween: Taking Back the Season!" Let me know how it turns out.
