15 Scary Woodland Horror Movies Set To Terrify You This Halloween – GameSpot

Ever since Hansel, Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood set off into the dark forest in Grimms' Fairy Tales, woods have been popular and highly effective settings for scary stories. The way leaves can block out sunlight, the ease with which characters can get lost, and the idea that there is something terrifying lurking deep within the trees have helped create some seriously spooky horror movies over the years.

Of course, woodland-based horror can take many forms. Some movies play on the fear of being utterly lost, unable to find the way out of the woods and reach more populated areas. Other films set outsiders against scary people--or more supernatural beings--that live in the forest and don't take kindly to intruders. And there are movies that simply use the woods as an atmospheric backdrop to their tales of terror.

It's October now, and for many horror fans, that means a whole month crammed full of scary movies. And of course, fall is also a season where the nights draw in and the leaves fall from the trees, making woodland horror an especially compelling choice to check out in the build-up to Halloween. So we've gathered together some of the scariest horror movies set in the woods ever made.
