There are so many places in the world that feature really dark stories. Often these stories are brought to life focusing on the real life story as the subject matter, but there are some that have so many stories that have made it a legend that filmmakers have to get creative. The latest, The Forest does just that and now Universal has announced that it is coming home.
The Forest follows a young woman’s hunt for her missing sister after she mysteriously disappears and discovers she vanished in Japan’s legendary Aokigahara Forest. Searching its eerie dark woods with the help of journalist, she plunges into a tormented world where angry spirits lie in wait for those who ignore the warning: stay on the path. The film stars Natalie Dormer, Taylor Kinney, Yukiyoshi Ozawa, Eoin Macken and was directed by Jason Zada.
