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.

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

Apr 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.

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

A forgettable found footage flick based on an incident that could have used a better script. Very effective in its third act. [Full review in Spanish].

Barber delivers a dramatic Blair Witch Project for UFO fans, and anyone else who likes to wonder about what is lurking in our skies that the government doesn't want us to know about.

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.
