One of the most impactful Korean thrillers
19 March 2018 | by HorrorWorldandReviewsSee all my reviews

There's a South Korean psychological thriller on Netflix that deserves your attention: Forgotten.

I will keep this little review as short and vague as possible, since I really think you should go blind into Forgotten.

Visually stunning, well-paced, extremely uneasy, beautifully scored and fantastically acted, Forgotten is definitely among my favourite thriller films... ever!

Very simply put, it tells the story of a regular family moving to a new house, something feels odd from the very beginning and, as soon as the story starts to unfold, it's one twist after the other. Forgotten is unsettling, depressing, compelling and features awesome characters, all of the extremely well written by writer/director Hang-jun Zhang (whose last film came out 15 years ago!).

If you haven't seen it yet... just go on Netflix and watch it asap.
