Reviews [click links to read more]:
“One or two moments aside, this is a dull, confusing affair with a lack of any real structure to guide viewers smoothly through the bumpier narrative moments. Potentially good ideas are squandered in rambling conversations, the acting is pretty poor, and it’s pretty impossible to care about even one of the main characters.” Kevin Matthews
“Forsaken is a terrible movie with no redeeming qualities. No unintentionally funny scenes, no memorable scenes, no good performances. Painfully boring, terribly acted, poorly written. Avoid at all costs.” HNN
“This is one muddled mess of a flick … The music mostly drowned out any dialogue. The dialogue sucked anyhow. The picture was grainy as well. Near the end, it takes an absurd turn which doesn’t help the film’s cause.” Shawn, Letterboxd
