Twilight in Forks: The Saga of the Real Town is not the Twilight film based on the book by Stephenie Meyer, but a documentary about the impact of the Twilight books and movies on the real-life town of Forks, Washington, the setting of Meyer's four-book Twilight series and the movies that followed them. Filmed in Forks, this 84-minute documentary presents extensive interview footage of the town's residents, including chamber of commerce members, store owners, students, teachers, and Quileute tribal elders, as well as a variety of Twilight fans from around the United States. Interspersed are absolutely breathtaking views of one of the most scenic places in the Pacific Northwest. Following a quick overview of the mystique of this rainy, yet beautiful area, the film is divided into six sections. The "Fans" segment is an enthusiastic celebration of all things Twilight, featuring interviews with a wide variety of Twilight fans, including star-struck teenage girls, their mothers and grandmothers, managers of Twilight-related websites, Twilight parodists, an MTV senior writer, and a middle-aged father who credits the Twilight series with bringing him closer to his teenage daughter. There's no denying that the Twilight phenomenon has hugely impacted the small town of Forks, and the "People" section of the film chronicles how Forks residents feel about the increased tourism in and visibility of their small town. The "Tour" segment focuses on the town's newly developed Twilight tours, and "Characters" highlights the town's real-life chief of police, doctor, restaurant owner, and Quileute tribal elders. The "La Push" section offers insight into historical tribal legends of the area through the words of Quileute elders Roy Black Jr. and Anita Wheeler, while highlighting tribal members' continuing celebration of the spiritual connection between people, animals, and nature. One especially interesting legend is that of the "changeover" people, in which, as Anita Wheeler describes, certain wolves were chosen "to set things right in the world" by becoming people and settling on the Quileute land now known as La Push. Finally, the "History" section details Forks' early days as a booming logging town, its more recent economic struggles due to decreased logging activity, and the current explosion of tourism in the area thanks to the popularity of the Twilight books and movies. Interviewees never quite reach consensus on whether vampires and werewolves really exist, let alone wander the woods and streets of Forks, and some of the interview footage is admittedly repetitive, even bordering on inane. Still, Twilight fans will find this real-life look at the small town behind the hugely popular Twilight series interesting and informative. --Tami Horiuchi

Are there truly vampires and werewolves there? Hear from the real people living their lives in the town fans know and love, including the Chief of Police, the Forks Outfitters employee who gets mistaken for Bella, and the vampire transplant who plays the real-life role of Alice. Visit Forks High School, hear self-described Jacob s grandfather tell the legend of how the Quileutes descended from wolves, and see many more of the people and places that make Forks and La Push the perfect setting for the Twilight Saga

4.0 out of 5 stars Forks Phenomenon March 23, 2010
Format:DVD
Four hours away from Seattle, Washington lies the town of Forks--once a logging town, now revitalized by author Stephanie Meyers' series of young adult books--Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1), The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Eclipse (The Twilight Saga) and Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga, Book 4) starring vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen and the love of his long life, human teenager Bella Swan.

Approximately 90 minutes, this documentary explores Forks from the perspective of the town's lifeblood--its people. Sumptuously beautiful with a full spectrum of natural attractions: amazing timberland, the Olympic Natural Park, the windswept beaches of La Push, Rialto and Kalaloch, the Hoh Rain Forest, the Sol Duc Falls, Quileute Indian Reservation land and the intimate setting of a small American town, Forks boasts of a major tourist influx in the last few years since the Twilight books and films have rekindled the romantic imagination of the nation and the world.

For the most part this presentation is geared towards Twilight fans only. I don't believe anyone other than a die-hard fan would be willing to devote 90 minutes of their time to watch what is basically a travel log outlining the phenomenal growth of an otherwise declining town in desperate need of revitalization from a once booming timber industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL Forks, not the movie version. March 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This documentary did a fantastic job of showing us the "real" Forks Washington. The one Stephanie wrote about and the one I envision while reading this Saga. If you can put the movies out of your mind for the time it takes to watch this I think you will be pleasantly surprised. (You must stop comparing the movies to this DVD, the books, my friends, it is about the books). Stephanie clearly did her homework! Any true "Twi-hard" will not only buy this DVD, but will appreciate the significance of it, especially if you do not live in the Pacific Northwest and may never have the opportunity to visit. Thanks to those who made it possible to see the Forks Washington that Stephanie Meyer so elegantly depicted in her story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting... March 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kind of felt longer than it should have been, but it was neat to see what the real Forks looks like. The movie follows the Twilight Tour and shows all the spots from the book. They spend a lot of time talking to people about the effect the books/movies have had on the town. They talk to some visiting fans as well. It was cool to see interviews with Larry Carroll and Kaleb Nation. They talked to a couple of Quiliute people about their culture as well. Not the best thing I've ever watched, but cool for people like me who will probably never get to Forks, or even for people who've been who want to relive their visit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected April 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After seeing some of the beautiful scenery in the movies, I was excited about watching this documentary. I had hoped there would be more footage of the town of Forks, but instead this was mostly a bunch of fans talking about how much they love the books and the movies. I consider myself to be a big fan of Twilight (more so of the books than the movies), but I actually fell asleep watching this.

I purchased this DVD because I'm a HUGE Twilight fan and the previews for it at the begining of the movie DVDs had me curious. It's pretty good. It's definatly interesting to see the way Twilight has impacted the people in this town. Good buy for any major fan of the saga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising May 1, 2010
Format:DVD
You know, I didn't think I would purchase this DVD, don't want to be completely obsessed, and I already have the books, DVDs, Director's Notebook, and the Illustrated book - but I watched Twilight in Forks on cable and enjoyed it. I enjoyed hearing about the town, seeing Jacob's grandfather, and the townsfolks where simply great. I don't know, maybe just one more thing to add to my Twilight life, but I want to say thanks to Forks for indulging the fans and sharing their town.

5.0 out of 5 stars TWILIGHT IN FORKS-SAGA OF THE REAL TOWN March 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this little video! I am a big fan of the Twilight Saga and sense a magical quality about the story and the setting. It was nice to see how warmly the people of Forks have embraced this story and how it has blessed their little town. The fact that Stephanie Meyer has placed her story in a real setting, makes her fans want to visit there. This video satisfies that desire. You feel like you have visited and talked with people who love the story as much as you do and to know what it is like to live there. I loved the music to the video as well as I felt it added to that special fairy-tale atmosphere to the area. I bought this video for myself and then after watching it, ordered it as a gift to other fans I know. I feel it is a must for the collector of all things wonderful associated with the Twilight Saga.
