Review: When I read the blurb for this movie, I assumed it would be another teen horror/slasher so I was pleasantly surprised to discover a thoughtful and fairly well-made movie.

The vengeful spirit of a girl she played with when child is making Sandy’s friends disappear. There are the typical ‘jocks’ and ‘nerds’ who make up Sandy’s group of friends so in some respects you feel on safe ground. The acting is pretty solid and there’s some original ideas in here so it’s worth a Sunday afternoon (or Halloween evening!) watch. However, the story is fairly plodding and the characters are not that engaging which means Forget Me Not will soon be forgotten.
