Zombie Popcorn has been given the privilege to review an advance copy of the film, ‘Forget Me Not’.
This horror/thriller offers some interesting twists to the story and has hints of some of the modern Japanese horror films. It won Best Horror Film – Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival.
The plot reads; [singlepic id=1563 w=320 h=240 float=right]
It’s graduation weekend, and Sandy Channing, the popular class president of her small-town high school, should be enjoying the time of her life. But when her friends start disappearing, Sandy discovers they have unwittingly awakened the vengeful spirit of a girl they wronged long ago. Fighting for her sanity and her life, Sandy must unlock a dark secret from her own past before it’s too late.
The film starts off with a group of college grads agreeing to play a childhood game in the graveyard. The game is very similar to the real world game ‘Survive‘, which is a massive game of tag that pits human vs zombies. Just replace the zombies with ghosts and you have the film, Forget Me Not.

The beginning has the feel of ‘Hostel’ (without all the nudity) but ends with a feel of The Grudge meets Rod Serling’s The Night Gallery. I was impressed with the kills in this film because I wasn’t expecting a gore factor – a couple of the kills delivered on the blood.
Overall, the film is entertaining, repetitive in parts and worth the watch.
Forget Me Not stars Cody Linley (“Hannah Montana,” “Dancing with the Stars,” Cheaper by the Dozen), Carly Schroeder (Mean Creek, Firewall, “Lizzy McGuire”), Chloe Bridges (Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, The Longshots) and is directed by Tyler Oliver.
Forget Me Not will be released on VOD/digital on May 3rd and will hit the shelves in DVD format on May 24th.
