Synopsis

A group of friends are seeking a new adventure in the mountains when their trip takes an unexpected turn. The ancient legend of “The Lady of the Damned Forest” – a curse from a woman who was a victim in these mountains – now becomes a reality. When her fury of evil is unleashed, only the power of love might save them.

Director’s note: This is a tale influenced & paid homage to: Evil Dead, Predator, Alien, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Conan The Barbarian, Labyrinth. The movie starts as a typical slasher movie (like House of Wax) and then it becomes terrifying with someone killing them at night. Little by little, fantastic elements appear and the film becomes more gothic (vampire and witchcraft) and ends up being an epic adventure with a dark fantasy element.
