This time the younger Pang - Danny - picks up the directorial reins for Forest of Death, a hokey horror starring Ekin Cheng and Shu Qi, who also starred in the unnecessary Eye 2. Whereas recent efforts such as Abnormal Beauty (directed by brother Oxide) indicate that the style over content issue remained unresolved, Forest of Death appears to try solving it by largely jettisoning the style altogether.
Detective Ha (Shu Qi) is trying to solve a rape/murdercase but hasn't got a whole lot to go on. She heads outto the forest where the girls were found killed toinvestigate and quickly realizes that there's somethingmysterious about this forest. She gets in touch withSteven who has written a thesis that plants aresentient creatures. Could the trees be the answer tothis case, or is there something even more absurdlurking in the deep forest?
Steven is a student of botany who has written his doctorate paper on the theory that "Plants Are Sentient Creatures". He spends all his time and effort trying to prove that plants have feelings and even language. Steven's girlfriend Mary works for a major TV station and her achievements seem to outstrip Steven's. One day, a criminal has abducted, raped and murdered the Prime Minister's daughter in the forest.
Eric was arrested as he was a major suspect in this case. Soon, the truth behind the crime is revealed through Steven's research. An experiment is carried out in the crime scene forest to determine whether or not the suspect is guilty by obtaining eyewitness and evidence: the forest itself. This generates great controversy in the parliament and to the legal profession but is there an answer out there in the forest?
