The psychological coming-of-agefilm, The Forest of the Lost Souls, written and directed by José Pedro Lopes, had its world premiere at the Fantasporto Film Festival on February 26, 2017, and is scheduled to open in theaters this month. Independent distributor Wild Eye Releasing (which represents horror, exploitation, dark arthouse, cult, and films from around the world) has acquired the Portuguese horror film and it will be the distributors first theatrical release.
The Forest of the Lost Souls Synopsis:
Ricardo and Carolina are complete strangers who meet seemingly by chance in the “Forest of the Lost Souls,” a place where many people go to commit suicide. These two, a young woman, and an old man, are no different than the others as they also came to the forest for this very reason.
They decide to briefly postpone killing themselves in order to explore the forest and also to continue talking to one another, as Ricardo and Carolina find themselves intrigued by each other.
However, as the pair go further into the forest it becomes clear that one of them has other reasons for being in the forest and is not who they would have the other believe them to be and is actually a psychopath…
The Forest of the Lost Souls will open theatrically on August 5th, in L.A and other cities.
