“THE FOREST” Sweepstakes To Take Fright Fans to Japan!


While it may be a few weeks before FANGORIA fanatics will have the chance to enter THE FOREST, buzz for the fright flick is rising as the film’s scary subject matter (based off the real Aokigahara Suicide Forest) and marketing campaign captures the eyes and imaginations of horror hounds. And now, Gramercy Pictures is giving those interested in seeing the Aokigahara Forest for themselves a chance to do so as a new sweepstakes will send one lucky fear fan and one companion to Tokyo, Japan!

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for THE FOREST…

Rising with terrifying grandeur at the base of Mr. 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), journeys there in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. In the company of expatriate Aiden (Taylor Kinney), 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.

So how can you enter to win a chance to go to Japan?
