Enter The Forest in 360 Degree Immersive Experience

So here's an entirely unsuitable way to end your year and enjoy the holiday season—an immersive 360 degree sight and sound experience, based on the upcoming film The Forest, that plunges you into the heart of Aokigahara, a real, and very depressing, forest at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan. The experience uses real images taken at Aokigahara, and was designed to be best enjoyed (or rather, experienced with a creeping sense of dread) using Google Cardboard and your phone.

Here's the site for you to enter The ForestAnd here's some boilerplate on the movie itself:

Rising with terrifying grandeur at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan, the legendary real-life Aokigahara Forest is the suspense-filled setting of the supernatural thriller.  A young American woman, Sara (Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones” and “The Hunger Games”), journeys there in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. In the company of expatriate Aiden (Taylor Kinney of “Chicago Fire”), Sara enters the forest having been well warned to “stay on the path.” Determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, Sara will have to face the angry and tormented souls of the dead that prey on anyone who dares come near them. These malevolent spirits lying in wait for Sara at every turn will plunge her into a frightening darkness from which she must fight to save herself.
