Here is the trailer
I don't think this the the holly wood Fatal Frame movie because they didn't mention Tecmo Koei or Nintendo in the trailer.
So what do you think ?

Wow, that trailer definitely gave me a FF5 vibe.
The only thing that really bothers me is that the main characters all happen to be white yet it's set in Japan. I know that it's based on Aokigahara forest but why set it in Japan if the cast is gonna be mainly white? Even the ghosts are white.

That's really crazy, for a sec I thought it was this film.. https://en.wikipedia...e_Sea_of_Trees
Apparently this is a good year for that specific area?? Nonetheless I want to watch both Though the camera you might be referring to is a viewfinder toy called View-Master that just shows sildes

IDK, missing relatives and creepy twins are horror staples, as are haunted forests. Unless they start going into rituals and apocalyptic disasters way back in history as well, I wouldn't jump to conclusions. It might be an intentional influence or homage, but there are a lot of traditional horror tropes that permeate the genre, and Fatal Frame tapped into them as much as anything, so sometimes you can end up with a lot of superficial similarities. Admittedly having the missing twin sister AND Aokigahara does make me raise my eyebrows a bit, but still.
And I have to agree with Yashuu that it looks terrible.

Some of the editing reminded me of the opening to FF2, when Mayu goes into the forest and Mio goes running after her. The swirling camera shot, her looking all dazed. The bodies and the way they panned were similar to the guardian statues in the opening as well. But I don't know if I'm biased or not. I might wait to see it before I call foul.

So this movie comes out on Friday (in America anyway) is anybody gonna see it? I'm still interested so I'll be dropping by a theater in the morning, I got things to do anyways so why not. This movie seems to be getting negative comments on a BuzzFeed video like "Wow, great way to disrespect the dead" and others like "making a movie about where people commit suicide is a terrible thing to do" God forbid this person finds out what Fatal Frame 5 is about and where it got it's inspiration from (I would love to see this person's reaction).

Well both this movie and FF5 are based off the same real world location so no, they dont need their permission. The "go find missing person in a suicide forest" could be a coincidence. We will have to wait and see for any info on the background about how they came up with this concept themselves. Its not like Fatal Frame is that "famous" as it used to be in North America.
They can get into trouble if it had a camera obscura without their permission. That camera seen in the trailers is just a toy so a lawsuit is unlikely.
