There is some fun to be had in this mostly silly teen horror film. Like many in its genre, the scare factor in Re/Member lessens as the story reveals more about what's going on. But each performance is convincing, if a bit cheesy at times, and each death is made to be more creative than the last. For many, however, by the time the "big monster" shows up, the film will have already devolved into an illogical and silly exercise, and for some, the final third will be laughably goofy.

All the elements of this horror film have been done before, and mostly have been done more effectively elsewhere, but at least some of the deaths and jump scares are creative, even though none of them are unexpected. There are also plenty of cheesy montages juxtaposed with all the bloody violence, which can be jarring for viewers not used to the J-horror genre. And a few too many logically inexplicable moments can take viewers away from the experience (for instance, when a single demonic girl is hunting you down, why ever split up?).
