* Subverted by the [[UsefulNotes/FinnsWithFearsomeForests Finnish Army]]. They are forest specialists ''par excellence'', and every conscript is taught to survive and find his way in the woods. The woods do provide excellent hideaways and bases for Finnish yeagers and rangers.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': The ponies of Equestria treat the Everfree Forest as an EldritchLocation, looking at it with fear, and preffering to avoid it when possible. Turns out, the forest is not so badů it just happens to be an EldritchLocation '''for them only''', because ''the plants and trees fend by themselves without pony aid, and the weather is not [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows under the control of Pegasi]]''; which clashes directly with the rest of the pony-ordered, cheerfully civilized Equestria. It is of note, though, that Everfree Forest DOES have some genuinely dangerous creatures, such as manticores or [[BearsAreBadNews Ursas]], other assorted nasty stuff like Poison Joke -- a plant which causes humorous afflictions on those who come in contact with it based on its own warped sense of humor -- and tends to offer some exotic new danger every time it's visited. It's just not as unnatural as the ponies believe.
** One exception would be that Zecora lives quite happily in the forest.

* Two thirds of the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' installments, where generations of teenagers visit the infamous forestbound Camp Crystal Lake and come up against the vengeful, hulking zombie of a drowned boy named Jason Voorhees (or [[MamaBear his vengeful mother]], or some [[LegacyCharacter random copycat killer]]). They're always being warned. They always ignore the warnings. They always lose the use of vital organs.

Two or more people, often a group of teenagers, go for a casual hike or a vacation at a secluded retreat in the [[TheLostWoods deciduous wilderness of North America or Europe]]. Horrible things ensue. The soon-to-be-not-so-happy campers get stalked through the trees by [[AxCrazy psychopathic]] [[SerialKiller killers]]; they run afoul of [[CannibalClan tribes]] of [[HillbillyHorror inbred hillbillies]]; ghosts, werewolves, witches, druids, fairies and other such beings toy with them; perhaps even the [[WhenTreesAttack trees themselves attack them]]; [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight they hear strange noises in the night]]; people disappear; [[GoAmongMadPeople people go insane]].

* ''The Watcher in the Woods'', where a summer in the forest turns into an encounter with a wandering spirit and forces from another dimension. It's from Disney, and it's rated PG. Don't let that fool you.
