Review: Forget me Not (2010)

"Disclaimer: Though this review makes multiple less-than-flattering references to whores and sluts, we here at THC fully support whores and sluts in all of their forms. Carry on..."

Cast Members of Note- Carly Schroeder, Cody Linley, Brittany Renee Finamore, Micah Alberti, and the hot as balls Brie Gabrielle.

A group of kids decide to play an innocent game of "Ghost in the Graveyard" and end up giving the local creepy kid a seizure, scaring her into a coma. On purpose. Aren't kids cute/assholes?

Creepy kid.
Years later, the same group of asshole kids are now asshole teenagers, and are getting ready to head off to College and start their lives as asshole adults. Now, instead of silly childhood games, they play things like "Drink to excess," "I'm a total whore," and "Let's drink to excess, because I'm a total whore."

Drink up, total whore.
In a moment of fond recollection, they decide to get loaded and head back to the old graveyard for one more game of "Ghost in the Graveyard." This time however, the annoying jerks rouse the ire of a vengeful spirit, which is hell-bent on offing them one by one, ala the game itself. Except it's real. But like the game. Real though. I'm sure you get it.

Tag, they're it!
Only the virginal princess knows what's happening to them, and of course her friends all think she's bat-shit crazy, which makes them all even more annoying and disposable. Can she stop the game in time to save her friends? Will everyone die, leaving her insane and alone? Will any of the hot chicks get naked and stop teasing us? Maybe, maybe not. I'll say no more.

"Who you callin' virginal?"
This movie is essentially one big game of Ghost in the Graveyard, but real life creepy-style. A mixture of your typical Teen Slasher and your equally-as-typical Asian ghost story, Forget Me Not is better than I thought it would be, but not quite as good as I'd hoped.

The movie is pretty, everyone in the movie is pretty, the story is fairly interesting and the premise well done, and had it been "scary" at all, I would have loved it to pieces. As it stands though, it's a mostly entertaining flick that won't make you unhappy to waste an hour and a half on.

She is about to be "it"... forever!
This movie felt too tame for all of its slutty characters and bloody death scenes. Had it pushed the envelope just a bit more, it could have been something special. Too tame! 

Yes, by "push the envelope" we mean get naked.
This movie is filled with whores, whores, whores. Screwing this one, screwing that one, sitting around in large groups and talking about who they've screwed before... in front of their boyfriends. Even with all of their free-spirited sass, none of them got naked!

"Get naked for you? Right! lol"
Surprisingly, this one had some cool kills and a decent amount of blood. I'm most partial to the industrial machine death myself.

A young Bella Thorne.
Boo! With all of the hot, nubile, slutty girls in this movie, are you telling me we can't get one naked boob? WTF?!

Tease!
"1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, release the one ignored by heaven... 8, 9, 10, now run and hide or join her at the devil's side... 11 comes, the clocks will chime, forgotten souls erased by time... Midnight comes it's not too late, so kill the ghost or seal your fate!"

Yeah, that rhyme means you're doomed.
Holy shit is that Christopher Atkins?!? And that one other guy who I've seen in some stuff from the 80's? I guess that this teaches us that B-movie actors never truly die. Also, never pick on the sick, creepy kid, or you will pass away

Just like that.
Forget Me Not was a decent effort, hampered only by being too tame and not being all that scary. That aside, it's a fun way to spend a couple of hours, especially if you like movies filled with pretty people behaving badly. How can you not love that?

Forget Me Not is available now on DVD, and VOD.

  1. I can see by the pics of the film you posted that the girls really do look like a bunch of cunty whores.

    Do they at least smoke meth?

  4. Looks like a run of the mill horror movie. Nothing special.

  5. I found this movie a little hard to get into, especially in the beginning, because pretty much all of the characters are horribly unlikeable. I kept watching for Brie though, who is stunning, and I eventually warmed to it.
