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.
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.
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.
This found-footage horror/sci-fi movie emerges as one of the most interesting and gripping efforts in a typically tired genre.
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.
Phoenix Forgotten is borderline generic, desert-set found footage that apes the aforementioned Witchiness and genre constraints to a snooze-worthy T.
Great "Blair Witch" style "found footage," lame, meekly-acted and easily forgotten framing footage.
Phoenix Forgotten does an admirable job of blending fact and fiction, and overall, co-writer/director Justin Barber crafts an intriguing sci-fi-fueled mystery that hooked me from the very beginning.
Unfortunately, that title will likely prove prophetic.
Phoenix Forgotten is the perfect Friday night escape, a movie that succeeds without the pressures of landing a shocking twist or impressing with gross out gore.
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.
