Rating & Content Info
Why is The Forest rated PG-13? The Forest is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for disturbing thematic content and images.
Violence: The core theme of this movie involves a real forest in Japan where it is common for people to take their own lives. This movie depicts the forest with many images of corpses hanging from trees, floating in a river or lying on the ground. There are many scenes of peril, some of which escalate into violence with blood effects. A character stabs another in the chest and we see blood ooze from the wound. Characters fight and attempt to overcome one another with a weapon. Scenes of dream and fantasy sequences depict ghoulish characters and nightmarish imagery.
Sexual Content: None noted.
Language: Infrequent use of scatological slang, mild profanity and terms of deity.
Alcohol / Drug Use: Social drinking in a bar.
