Forgotten Sins
15 November 2006 | by terry4397See all my reviews

When I first started watching this movie, it started out on a high note. I was immediately captivated but it didn't take long for it to lose me as it was a really strange movie. The acting by John Shea wasn't up to his usual stuff. The movie was rather slow moving and I do have to say the first part of the movie captivated me enough that I had to watch the whole movie to see how it ended. Forgotten sins was interesting because there have been several similar cases of repressed memories in the past. One movie in particular is Fatal Memories in which a woman starts to remember abuse as she watches her child play. Fatal Memories and Forgotten Sins were rather similar because of repressed memories. I really like Fatal Memories a lot whereas Forgotten Sins just didn't have the same luster as Fatal Memories. I would still say it is good enough to captivate you til the end though. I would like to know if this is a true story or not. I thought it was but couldn't find anything about it on the internet.
