Across The Forest: Real Transylvanian Folklore DVD

$ 14.95

In the mountains of Transylvania, ancient beliefs in the supernatural can still be found. These beliefs are quickly dying out as the world modernizes around the tiny villages of the Carpathians. 

Two American filmmakers journey across the forest to collect stories of vampires, werewolves and forest spirits. Through a series of conversations with Romanian villagers, viewers are led on a bizarre journey, across the forest and into the supernatural beliefs of a rapidly disappearing world as rarely glimpsed by outsiders. Beyond the sparkling romanticism of Twilight, far grittier than True Blood... To the people of Transylvania, the fodder for such fiction is very real and not to be taken lightly.

Presented here is the living folklore that haunts the collective imagination of Transylvania. See for yourself the tiny villages and ancient customs of this little known corner of the world.

Devoid of reenactments and sensationalism, this documentary proves that fact can be stranger than fiction.
