the forest trailer

Surely Natalie Dormer has what it takes to be a great scream queen. Audiences may be more used to watching her strut around fantasy worlds (Game of Thrones) and sprint through science fiction dystopias (The Hunger Games), but here is an actress with all of the right ingredients for a great horror movie heroine – she’s beautiful and tough and there’s a crafty intelligence on display in many of her performances that allow you to believe that she’s not just another bimbo to add to the kill count.

It’s impossible to judge The Forest based on its new trailer, but this preview rightfully allows Dormer to shoulder the responsibility of selling this thing. “Yeah, there are jump scares and such,” this trailer says, “but the main event is getting to watch Margaery Tyrell run through the woods and try to not get killed by ghosts.” And you know what? For the doldrums of January, that may be more than enough to get us to pick up a ticket.

The Forest

Natalie Dormer has done an impressive job navigating the dangers of Panem and Westeros, but can she handle the horrors lurking inside Aokigahara? Directed by Jason Zada, The Forest stars Dormer as a young American woman named Sara Price who enters Japan’s famous “Suicide Forest” in search of her sister, who’s mysteriously vanished.

Despite strident warnings to stay on the path, Sara goes off in her own direction (this is a horror movie, after all) and soon finds herself face-to-face with the tormented souls that live within the woods. We’re happy to debut three exclusive images from the movie, which you can check out after the jump.  Read More »
