Stay on the Path // January 8th, 2016

The promotional push behind Focus Feature’s THE FOREST continues to charge forward, and things just keep getting cooler. We’ve shared a couple versions of the trailer in the past, but now we have a brand new image gallery and motion poster for what I expect to be one of the strongest mainstream horror offerings in quite some time.

Check them out below, and then envision a world where your local cinema is stocked with nothing but sweet-ass motion posters like this:

​ 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” and “The Hunger Games”), 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.
