The Forest
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Bear McCreary
Label: Sparks & Shadows
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 08 January 2016

Sparks & Shadows releases Bear McCreary's score for The Forest. The movie is a supernatural thriller set in Japan's legendary Aokigahara Forest, where Sara journeys in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Despite everyone’s warnings to stay on the path, Sara enters the forest to discover her sister’s fate...

Bear McCreary delivers a handful of intimate themes with his work of The Forest. The album contains 10 tracks (42 min, 02 sec) with stand out moments including 'Journey to Aokigahara' and the the lively, haunting, electronic track 'Theme from the Forest'.

While a few more themes would have been welcomed, what we have is still much more interesting than the majority of horror scores churned out for the genre. McCreary, once again, works his magic and presents fans of the movie a chance to own this subtle and, in places, beautiful score.
