New Doc Explores Forks, Washington, The Real Home Of “Twilight”


There are T-minus six months until “New Moon” hits movie theaters, and “Twilight” heads are seriously chomping at the bit. To bide their time, many are heading to the real town of Forks, Washington, where the books and movie supposedly take place. But since that’ll cost you a plane ticket plus $300 for the official tour, we’re excited about this documentary “Twilight in Forks,” which tells the story of this town which famously is the rainiest spot in the United States. The doc takes you inside the real Forks High School, talks to a clerk at a local store who constantly gets mistaken for Bella, heads to La Push beach, and interviews a Quileutes elder about the tribes’ legends.

There was also a “prom,” where bands like the Bella Cullen Project and Bella Rocks played. A tour of Forks was offered as well. OK, I’m starting to get a little freaked-out.
