Director Statement

"It starts like a slasher movie, then it becomes a horror story and ends up being an epic adventure and a dark fantasy movie, we could say.
And during these transitions you will count many representative images tributes to classic films that you will surely know how to identify."
(George Karja)

Lady of the Damned Forest
it's a dark fantasy, horror and adventure movie. A feature film with a very risky filming technique.

A multi-genre, with many dramatic twists, and also a tribute to many films of the 80s, to appeal to the nostalgia of that time, but also pays special tribute to fantastic movies, epic and classic books of this genre.

As for the characters in the story, we deal with four very different love stories. One of impossible love and betrayal, another one of passion, another one of dubious love, and a last one of authentic love between the main characters Allan and Clara.
I hope you enjoy the sensations that this story provokes, and feel the emotions, within a dark atmosphere full of pain and inner suffering of these characters.
