Has shocks and a solid performance, but no intelligence to go with them.

Knocks us out of a nice creepy atmosphere into oh-come-off-it-land. They randomly spun the wheel of movie genres to pick an ending. They should have spun again.

A pseudospiritual, mumbo-jumbo, science-fiction inflected mess.

The Forgotten just doesn't quite hold up as either a gut-wrenching tale of loss or a convincing psychological thriller.

Things are too tidy, too wrapped up with a neat bow...
