Film.com
Horror presented without restraint or apology, as a full-bore, blood-soaked load of nomad nastiness caught in constant forward motion.
60
L.A. Weekly
The film works, cleanly, without any tiresome reliance on computer graphics.
50
Variety
Chalk it up as a middling B-pic that, with a bit more wit and style, could have been at least a cult item.
50
This flashy fright flick doesn't break any new ground, but puts an attractive gloss on genre conventions.
50
Had it exhibited a modicum of restraint, The Forsaken could have been twice as scary.

New York Post
Writer-director J.S. Cardone's low-budget mishmash offers precious little in the way of thrills and chills, much less coherent storytelling.
30
Apart from the fang-restraint of the nosferatu, however, there's precious little that's altogether new or for that matter shocking about this by-the-numbers thriller.
20
Chicago Reader
Its ponderous explanations about why there are vampires in Arizona in the new millennium (blah, blah, blah).
20
Mr. Showbiz
The Forsaken discourages one from caring in the least how its breed of vein-tappers came to be, or even what will happen if they take over the world.
16
Entertainment Weekly
While it's rarely scary, the film is often gory.
