Wandering in the woods and meeting a horrible end has long been a staple of the genre and when it’s done well – there is nothing better. Will ‘The Forest’ join the ranks of previous classics? If the trailer it to be a gauge, it certainly could be. Before we have a look, here’s the story breakdown:
“Rising with terrifying grandeur at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan, the legendary real-life Aokigahara Forest is the suspense-filled setting of the supernatural thriller. A young American woman, Sara (Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones), journeys there in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. In the company of expatriate Aiden (Taylor Kinney of Chicago Fire), Sara enters the forest having been well warned to “stay on the path.”
Determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, Sara will have to face the angry and tormented souls of the dead that prey on anyone who dares come near them. These malevolent spirits lying in wait for Sara at every turn will plunge her into a frightening darkness from which she must fight to save herself.”
Jan. 8th is when we’ll all get to venture into ‘The Forest’ for ourselves. Some new promo art has hit as well!
