A woman goes into Japan's Suicide Forest to find her twin sister, and confronts supernatural terror.
Aokigahara, known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees, is a 35-square-kilometre forest lying at the north-west base of Mount Fuji in Japan. The forest has an association with demons in Japanese mythology, and is a common suicide site; a sign at the start of the main trail urges suicidal visitors to contact a suicide prevention association. There have been two recent movies inspired by this premise, Shawn4Ever (2012) and The Sea of Trees (2015), both released before The Forest.
Oh, God, Help me! Somebody help! Help me!
In the first scenes, when Sara is talking with Rob in their bedroom, one shot was reversed. This is apparent by Natalie Dormer's moles here on the left side of her face.
