Considerably better -- and far more intriguing -- than most entry-level horror pics, marrying a retro B-movie setup with the ghostly obsessions of recent Asian extreme cinema.

The movie draws upon so many influences -- stylized Hitchcock suspense, surreal Asian horror and the Gothic romance of Britain's Hammer Studios -- it's easier to follow the reference points than the plot.

Filled with labored exposition, stilted line readings and the most unconvincing romantic hookup since Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley.

To what niche does this movie aspire, Michael Crichton sci-fi chiller, Ed Wood camp or neo-'60s grand guignol for former leading ladies of a certain age? You decide.

Adapting his own novel, [director] Davlin seems blessedly unaware of how silly his story is, attacking it with such escalating melodramatic fervor that Memory rises from the disastrously campy to the bizarrely hypnotic.

Stylish and twisty, but not clever enough to support its more outrageous plot machinations.

A bizarre, mind-bending psychological thriller, filled with red herrings.

... tosses us so many hints and red herrings that, by the end, we really don't care who turns out to be the killer. All solutions are equally satisfying, which is the same thing as being equally unsatisfying.

The director states in the film's press notes that 'all the science you will see in this motion picture is cutting edge,' a statement that holds true if you simply replace the word 'science' with 'silliness.'

Audience Reviews for Memory

Does anyone but me notice that Billy Zane does NOT age?? Hmmmm...anyway. I like him.. Always have...but his movies are average at best. This one included. It's fairly predictable, but the script is decent and keeps you engaged. Extra 1/2 star for Billy's immortality.

Memory is one of the best direct-to-video/b-movies I have ever seen. How a small production company gets a cast like this is beyond me, but this was just a great movie! Billy Zane is a guy with a clouded past, who decides to use an experimental drug to restore his memory. Only to vividly remember a murder he witnessed, but was it his memory or someone else's? I don't like Zane one bit, but in this movie, he's pure genius. What was really striking about this film, (especially since it's a low budget b-movie), was the imagery. Everything is so vibrate and methodically done. First time director, Bennett Davlin, really has you sitting on the edge of your seat. It really feels like you're alongside Zane, seeing what he sees. As for the ending, I never saw it coming. I've seen a lot of films, and you've got to have a pretty good story to surprise me! It's a film you've never heard of and won't see in theaters, but it's defiantly one that shouldn't be missed.

It's very hard to write a positive review of a movie which is not appealing on a first sight for the most of the viewers... but I'll do just that! This is a real thriller with a lot of twists. It was slow at the beginning but during the last part that slowness helped the ending which reveals the truth in clensing and furious fire... It's not one of the best movies I watched but it's not in the category of boring ones either! Judge it for yourself...
