Storyline

In Japan, the college student Maiko grieves the loss of her mother, who committed suicide two weeks ago in the notorious "suicide forest". Maiko is seeking out her body and her friends Amber and Terry decide to make a documentary about her quest as school project. Terry invites his friend Kyle to shoot their documentary and they head to the forest. On the arrival, they meet the lonely hiker Jin, who asks them to leave the dead in peace and go away and stays with them. However they decide to search the spot and soon their college mates Skylar, Brody and Craig play a prank on them. While returning to their car, the trio finds a dead body and Skyler steals a Rolex from his wrist. When Jin finds what they have done, he advises that they are doomed.

Trivia

The suicide forest actually exists in Japan. In Japanese, it is called Aokigahara, and is at the bottom of Mount Fuji. The forest range covers around 14 square miles. Once you enter the forest, it's completely silent - no sounds of birds singing or animals rustling around. The number of suicides taking place there has increased yearly, and the Japanese government has placed signs around the perimeter of the forest, in Japanese and in English, urging people to stay away. There is a government department with the sole assignment of periodically going into the forest to remove as many bodies as possible. See more »

Not So Bad for a SyFy Channel Movie
20 October 2013 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Maiko (Kaitlyn Leeb, Isabelle Beech as a child) is an American studying in Japan. She has disturbing dreams about a woman searching for her daughter, calling out for her. This may be because she's beginning a quest to find her birth mother (Maiko Miyauchi).

Joining her in her search is a student video team that will document her journey – producer Amber (Cassie Thomson), cameraman Kyle (Graham Wardle), and sound man Terry (Dejan Loyola).

The group is given a warning about the Yure ("YOU-ray," the restless souls of the suicide victims ) by a wanderer named Jin (Hiro Kanagawa), who knows the forest well and agrees to help them find where Maiko's mother committed suicide.

Takeaway lesson: Do not ... Repeat, DO NOT ... enter the Suicide Forest under any circumstances.

This is a SyFy Channel movie that has all the scary elements of a Japanese "obake" (ghost) story. The acting and story are okay, and actually, compared to other SyFy movies I've seen, Grave Halloween is not bad. But, the problem with SyFy movies is that they are so predictable. That's this one's problem, and this time, there's no familiar veteran actor/actress to "legitimize" the movie.

The movie has only a slight relevance to Halloween, but SyFy Channel exploited that to make the movie part of their "31 Days of Halloween" observance. Pretty tacky, huh?
