Plot:

A young girl (Courtney Biggs) is running through a graveyard, crying, her face covered with skull paint. She makes it to her house and her parents ask her what’s wrong. The little girl, named Sandy, responds by stating: “I don’t remember.”

Years later, Sandy Channing (Carly Schroeder) and her brother, Eli (Cody Linley), are both academic students with scholarships to Stanford University. They go to a party at night at their friend T.J.’s house, and they and their friends go to the graveyard to play a game.

As they are about to start, a girl about their age (Brittany Renee Finamore) asks to play. They allow her, and they play a different version of tag, where one of them is a ghost, and whoever the ghost tags becomes a ghost until there is one left. Eli, who is the ghost, and the others tag everyone, leaving the unnamed girl the winner.

As Sandy tells her that she’s won, the girl asks if she remembers her. Sandy tells her she doesn’t, with the girl stating, “You will,” before jumping from the cliff behind her. The police arrive but are unable to find a body…

Reviews:

‘Some good kills and a few suspenseful shock scenes got me through the more unpalatable stuff.  And after the opening twenty minutes, it sort of found its groove and showed me a fun, if frivolous, time. Don’t bother seeking it out, but if you catch it on Netflix or late-night TV, and your partner is asleep or has a headache, give it a look.’ The Horror Hotel

” …Forget Me Not is a lot better than I expected with a nice idea to make a regular teen horror movie a little more entertaining. But at the same time it is generically written and so ends up just a good but ultimately forgettable teen horror movie.” The Movie Scene

‘ … despite the villain – the concept is quite strong, but the execution is just so pitiful that any positivity is made redundant. It’s also a concept that feels like a particularly dark episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and to be honest, even the weakest episodes of that classic Kids’ series are a notch above Forget Me Not. Avoid at all costs.’ We Love Movies [More Than You]
