The Devil Complex – In November 2012 Rachel Kusza and her team of film makers travelled to Transylvania to document the Baciu forest.
A forest with a dark history of strange occurrences, ghost sightings and countless cases of missing people. The film crew were never heard from again. After searching for the film crew for two years Howard Redman, Rachels teacher, found the crews camera buried in the snow. Before taking own life on the 12th Febuary 2014 Redman uploaded the footage to the internet. It shows the crews dark and horrific journey into the woods, it shows why locals refuse to enter and it shows that you can never escape your past. This video is widely referred to as The Devil Complex.
About Hoia-Baciu haunted forest:
Locals say that if you enter the forest with evil in your heart, or dark secrets in your past, the forest will expose you and show you who you really are, before punishing you.
The Hoia-Baciu Forest was named after a Baci (Romanian for Shepherd) that disappeared in the forest with a flock of 200 sheep. The search for this man went on for days and spanned across several countries, but they found no trace of the Baci or his sheep.
The forest (often referred to as the ‘Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania’) gained world wide notoriety in 1968 when biologist Alexandru Sift revealed pictures of a disc-shaped object hovering over the trees. The sighting was the first of many, there is even place within the forest called the “Round Field” which some locals believe to be the landing sight of UFO’s.
Other locals believe the forest to be haunted by the ghosts of Romanian peasants who were murdered there, their spirits trapped within its wooded confines for eternity as the pray on any unsuspecting trespassers.
People who claim to have entered the forest have all documented similar experiences, nausea, disorientation, a loss of time and the feeling of being watched. Some reported flashing lights while others heard strange voices calling to them from behind the trees.
To date over one thousand people have been reported missing after entering the forest, wide spread man hunts only recovered five of which. They were all pronounced dead at the scene and their deaths were recorded as suicide.
Many researchers and paranormal investigators have tried to document or explain the strange events that occur within the Hoia-Baciu forest but so far all have failed.
