Natalie Dormer and, er, “friend” in The Forest

A young woman’s hunt for her missing sister leads to horror and madness in the supernatural horror-thriller The Forest, starring Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones fame and directed by Jason Zada.

When her troubled twin sister Jess mysteriously disappears, Sara Price (Dormer) discovers Jess vanished in Japan’s legendary Aokigahara Forest. Searching its eerie dark woods with the help of journalist Aiden (Taylor Kinney,(TV’s The Vampire Diaries), Sara plunges into a tormented world where angry spirits lie in wait for those who ignore the warning: stay on the path.
