New Films To Shed Light On Japan’s Infamous ‘Suicide Forest’

New Films To Shed Light On Japan’s Infamous ‘Suicide Forest’

Ben Arnold writes:

It is beautiful, dense and tangled - it’s sometimes called the ‘sea of trees’ - and boasts ice caverns hidden in its volcanic rock.

But it has become known for a much more dark and tragic reason – it’s also been called ‘the suicide forest’, a place where up to 1988, around 100 suicides would occur each year.

A new movie, starring ‘Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer, has now been unveiled called ‘The Forest’, a horror thriller which finds Dormer searching for her twin sister who has gone missing in Aokigahara.
