For the first time ever, the truth will be revealed...

Critic Reviews for Phoenix Forgotten

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

Yes, it's a found-footage film, a genre that seemed played out not long after it arrived, and "Phoenix Forgotten" doesn't do anything to revive it.

April 27, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Another disappointingly derivative imitation of The Blair Witch Project, this time mashed up with The X-Files franchise.

April 23, 2017 | Full Review…

Most found-footage horror films owe a sizable debt to The Blair Witch Project, but few have aped the genre's touchstone quite as shamelessly as does Phoenix Forgotten.

April 21, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

This umpteenth retread of the 'Blair Witch' formula adds nothing new of note to the tired found-footage horror genre.

Top Critic

This found-footage horror/sci-fi movie emerges as one of the most interesting and gripping efforts in a typically tired genre.

May 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Phoenix Forgotten is more intense than scary, and won't make anyone lose any sleep unless they're still waiting for a payoff that just isn't going to come.

April 27, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Phoenix Forgotten

The story's just as terrible as you expected it to be. It's like I can take something that hardly anyone cares about it and slap it to a movie to send to Hollywood to officially approve so I can waste all my life working on it. The crew behind this should have known better and would have been because I sure wish this could have been worse.
