First-time director Nate Taylor skillfully evokes a clammy sense of dread in this stealthily suspenseful indie thriller.
The frequent use of direct-address narration feels too much like a fiction writer's device, however much it wants to be a hook.
Thanks to some well-drawn characters and tight casting, including Anna Camp and Lindsay Beamish as an exceptionally troubled makeup artist, Taylor overcomes the script's minor implausibilities.

Surprising, clever and twisted with a convincingly sweet and creepy performance by Christopher Denham.
Forgetting The Girl...has nothing to offer apart from misdirection. It merely transforms from one kind of lousy movie into another kind of lousy movie.
A well observed, well acted character study about damaged souls whose orbits begin to exert a further destabilizing gravitational pull on one another. There's a smooth confidence at work here that never tips over into flamboyant stylistic overreach.
