    Marc SavlovAustin Chronicle

    Phoenix Forgotten is borderline generic, desert-set found footage that apes the aforementioned Witchiness and genre constraints to a snooze-worthy T. show more

    Justin LoweThe Hollywood Reporter

    The performances in the 1997 scenes are relatively low-key, relying more on the dramatic development of personal relationships than the shock value of unexpected events. The contemporary storyline offers little of particular interest, however, serving more to contextualize earlier developments. show more

    Director Barber makes the period video look exactly like misplaced family home movies — rolling picture, static, shaky, the works. show more
