Check out the new trailer & poster for The Forest of Lost Souls

Leading independent distributor Wild Eye Releasing's recent releases include the well-received sci-fi thriller SOFT MATTER and James Klass’s HOUSE ON ELM LAKE. The company represents horror, exploitation, dark arthouse, cult and documentary films from around the world. And today we have word about their newest acquisition.

The new film is a Portuguese horror movie called THE FOREST OF THE LOST SOULS. The film, which had its world premiere at the Fantasporto Film Festival on February 26, 2017, marks Wild Eye Releasing's first theatrical release and is scheduled to open in August.  And today we have the movie's poster and trailer (along with a handful of all-new stills) for you to look through. I'm loving the black and white photography and I'm thinking this could be a solid under-the-radar fright flick. We'll see soon!

The psychological "coming of age" horror film, written and directed by José Pedro Lopes follows this synopsis:

Ricardo and Carolina are complete strangers that 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 one another. 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… 

I'm marking my calendar for this movie's release if - for no other reason - then it is presented in black and white. And I don't know about you, but I love a solid black and white horror movie. In fact, I'd say there should be MORE black and white horror movies out there nowadays. So if you agree, make sure to support this film and mark your own personal calendar as well. THE FOREST OF THE LOST SOULS will open theatrically in L.A and other cities on August 5th.
