Haunted forests: Chicago's spooky history

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Aokigahara Forest, also known as "Suicide Forest" lies on the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. It's the backdrop of new horror movie "The Forest," in theaters today. 

In Aokigahara , here is no wildlife, the ice never melts no matter the temperature, and compasses mysteriously malfunction. Even creepier, according to legend, demon spirits haunt the forest slopes.

But what might surprise you more, is some of the worlds most haunted forests are right here in Chicago.

Ursula Bielski, tour guide for "Chicago Hauntings" joined us LIVE on GDC to talk more about Chicago’s spooky history.
