Quotes / Don't Go in the Woods

Beware, beware, the Forest of Sin
None come out, though many go in.

"Kin ye squeal like a piggy?"

"There's nothing to fear,
People do disappear,
In the dark side of the forest...forest...forest
Now don't get lost,
Or you'll have to pay the cost,
As many have died,
In the dark side of the forest..."
David Somerville, "The Dark Side of The Forest", The Forest (1982) soundtrack

Those who dare to walk in the forest
Be wary, there is trouble abound
A new breed of humanity
Surviving by hunting you down
Cormorant, "Mark the Trail"

Jacob and Elisa had been warned by their parents on numerous occasions never to venture into the Amber Woods after dark or risk some vague and unspoken fate once within the trees, so they didnít and just played in their front yards instead.
