Added DiffLines:

* In some zones of Mexico, (particularly the states of Michoacán and Veracruz, which have the quite unlucky combination of thick forests and heavy cartel activity) it is ill advised to travel at night through forest highways, specially if you don't know the road. Although there are safer federal highways, other, more remote roads can be very dangerous. They are dark and often neglected, and you risk falling victim to muggers playing a WoundedGazelleGambit (when they're not blocking the road), or worse, getting mistaken by [[ProperlyParanoid local cartels]] for undercover rivals. Either way, it wouldn't end well.

* ''Film/TheRitual'' features four friends taking a hike in Sweden to honor the memory of a fifth recently deceased friend. They decide to take a shortcut through a forest. Unfortunately, said forest is home to [[spoiler: an ancient Nordic god monster, possibly a daughter of Loki, and a village of people that worship her and give her human sacrifices.]]

* One need not be human to be endangered by entering the forest of Kellwood in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'', though most humans seen in it are summarily killed and eaten by the monsters therein and the fact that it is ''much'' larger than it looks on human maps would make it an easy place to become hopelessly lost.

* There are a number of human eating monsters in the forests of ''Webcomic/TheDreamwalkerChronicles'', and while some of the supernatural entities encountered are benevolent the one that attempts to help the main trio while they're in the woods ends up being killed himself.

* Elon gives Myari this warning in ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' after she's wandered into the dark, dangerous forest without him.
--> '''Elon:''' Why must you always put yourself at risk like this? We all know how dangerous the forest is!
* The staple and prevalent background scare in ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent''. Enhanced by the fridge horror of the fact it's not just the woods outside the settlement walls -- it's the entire known world. If the scene showing the landscape during the train ride isn't a dead ringer for this trope, nothing is.

* One episode of ''WebVideo/BedtimeStoriesYoutubeChannel'' covers mysterious killings and disappearances in American and Canadian national parks. And suffice to say, don't go into the woods unless you want to end up like these people.

* The forest bordering ''InkCity'' is home to mindless ink monsters and other threats, and also holds the FourthWall. Assuming you make it that far, it's best just to leave the Wall alone... touching it leads to ''bad things''. The City's first major Event involved a large group of residents venturing into the woods only to discover exactly WHY that was such a bad idea.
