Nasty And Impressive “The Forest Of Lost Souls” Comes To Amazon Prime, Blu-Ray This October

Leading independent distributor Wild Eye Releasing releases Portuguese horror film The Forest of the Lost Souls on Amazon Prime and Blu-ray this month.

The psychological “coming of age” horror film, written and directed by directed by José Pedro Lopes, also has new artwork to coincide with the Amazon and BD launch.

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…

The Funk Is Alive In This Group Of New Yorkers As They Invade The “Virgin Blacktop”


Review by Richard Caldwell
Rating: 3/5

What do you love? What sparks some of your favorite childhood memories? Does that thing make you feel a spark of passion every time you speak of it? “Virgin Blacktop” is a film that analyzes each of those individual thoughts. Each thought is generated from a place of love and engulfed in remembrance.

“Virgin Blacktop” is a documentary type film. The film is directed by filmmaker Charles Samuels. It follows Samuels and his group of friends as they tell stories of their beginning days as skateboarders. The group was known as the “wizards” and each got their start in New York towns/cities. That was before they later would combine to form a new sidewalk surfing team.

Overall the film is enjoyable and informative. The tale is unique as it centers around a group of New York skateboarders, The kind of music they chose as their skating background also adds an interesting twist to the story. The “funk” is what they were turned on to. The funk was definitely alive in the “Wizards” as they took the New York skating world by storm.
