You might recognize Natalie Dormer from her role on The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, or Elementary. Now you can see her as the lead character in what can best be described as a psychological folktale horror film. The movie references the Aokigahara Forest, a real place in Japan associated with demons in Japanese folk lore. It’s also a place where about 100 people go to commit suicide every year. The trailer plays heavily on this history and creeps us the heck out.
A supernatural thriller set in the legendary Aokigahara Forest. A young American woman, Sara (Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones” and “The Hunger Games”), goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared.
