SYNOPSIS

This is a continuation of the film "Shadows Of The Forest", which takes us to the day after those events.

Early in the morning, a young girl pauses during her morning jog, hearing a distant noise. She turns to find an abandoned car smeared with blood. Despite fear, curiosity draws her closer.

But this girl doesn’t know, what secrets this forest keeps and what happened last night near this car.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT
"Shadows of the forest: Dawn" takes audiences on a harrowing journey through the depths of the forest, where the familiar becomes twisted and reality blurs with terror.

Ultimately, "Shadows of the forest: Dawn" is a meditation on the fragility of life and the resilience of the human spirit. It challenges audiences to confront their own fears and anxieties while providing a thrilling and immersive cinematic experience.

Through atmospheric cinematography, tense pacing, and visceral storytelling, I aimed to create a visceral and unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness. It is my hope that audiences will be gripped by the tension and terror of "Shadows of the forest: Dawn" and emerge with a renewed appreciation for the light that guides us through the darkest of nights.
