Customer Reviews

The film drags a bit, too, even by psychological horror standards.
DanD
I really didn't think the movie was scary at all...more like a rip off to get your money.
Debbie H. Allen
The movie never really gives you enough to really understand what is going on.

The movie cycles back and forth between a home movie video that displays the time and date and a bad hand held camera that doesn't. Tim (Johnny Lewis) and Molly (Gretchen Lodge) get married in 2010 according to the camera, but don't move into her parent's home until a year later in 2011. We know that her parents, Ben and Tammy are deceased...in heaven watching the ceremony.

Tim is a truck driver who travels. He has installed an alarm system, one that goes off on occasion as if someone inside the house unlocks and opens the door. But they seemingly own no gun living in a rural area. Hannah (Alexandra Holden) is Molly's F-bomb dropping, pot smoking, blond sister. There is a mystery concerning the house and its past that Molly doesn't recall. She is creeped out by being alone in her childhood house. All this adds up to only one thing to horror genre fans who have seen this recently in too many films. However this film doesn't care if you gather this clue early as there is much more going on.

To add to the uncertainty, Molly has a history of drug use and at times doesn't seem to be all there. Interesting film, although clearly not for everyone. This is a slightly more complex "ghost" story than the Paranormal series and fans of the simple hand held camera genre may not find this feature enjoyable. While the film is slow at times, it doesn't stagnate as every scene drops a clue or tells a story. It is a film I am considering watching again to pick up things I missed.

Spoiler free

This is a compelling horror movie for a few reasons. I am not claiming this is the most amazing movie in the world, but it ended up affecting me more than expected and for that I will give it a tip of the hat.

Why i liked it:

- Creepy throughout vs jump scares and gore.
- Events of the movie open for interpretation.
- The movie showed you things without context that just seem random, but later bring those scenes into context.

These things left me thinking about it long after the movie was done.

The found video parts were a mixed bag but in the end I decided that they were an asset to the presentation. there were a few really good video scenes while others were kind of pointless.

In the end I would reccomend people who prefer creepy over slasher type movies. The movie feels very depressing and thus it is not a very good date movie. I was in the right mode to let myself get absorbed by the movie, so I can understand why opinions vary on it. It kind of reminded me of the movie Possession (1981)...but not as good.

Sometimes the best horror movies only reveal their chills on repeated viewing. That's why, for me, atmosphere and creep are more effective than explicit gore and jump-out shocks.

"Lovely Molly" is like that. The first time I watched it I thought it was OK. Nothing too impressive, but certainly something I would pull out again on a lazy afternoon. The second time, I was amazed at how the whole thing seemed to fall into place for me. If anything, I found it more suspenseful and disturbing than I had the first time around. That's the mark of quality.

Huge praise to the actors, particularly Gretchen Lodge who does a fine job as Molly. Alexandra Holden is even better, I think, in the role of Molly's increasingly worried sister. And Johnny Lewis is excellent as Molly's husband. Such a sad thing that this likeable actor and talented young man (Johnny, not the character) was unable to counter his own real life demons.

One tip: make sure you have the sound turned up - or watch this with headphones on. The sound design is central to the effectiveness of the movie and it's done in a very subtle way.

So horror buffs should get this without hesitation. Just make sure you watch it a couple of times!

Did her bad experiences (molestation), drug use and depression cause her to be crazy, or is she really haunted by a ghostly sexual predator? It's dark and twisted, and will leave you thinking about it for days. No special effects, just good acting and an interesting story.

I will say I did very much enjoy this flick...however, there are some gripes that I have. For the most part this is a cool and creepy flick. But, as the movie rolls on you can't help but think this is just some cracked out girl imagining a bunch of crazy stuff. The movie continues on and you keep thinking more and more that she is completely drugged out. Then everything gets even crazier and the movie ends...and they would like you to believe it is not just the drugs...from my perspective I feel they should have had more ghostly type of creepy moments to cement this throughout the flick. Besides that, it was a creepy and definitely worthwhile flick.

I am a horror genre buff and there really isn't much that scares me but, watching this movie at night, put a little fear into me. I viewed this movie and decided to purchase it for that reason! LOL!

Molly and her husband, Tim, (Half Sac from "Sons of Anarchy") recently moved into her deceased father's house but not long after they move in, Molly starts getting haunted by forgotten memories, or so she thinks. Tim is a truck driver and while he's away she starts seeing and hearing things that she can't explain. Molly slips back in to her old habit of using drugs. Her sister and best friend, Hannah, as well as others around her, start to worry as Molly exhibits strange behavior. As a viewer, you wonder if her behavior is attributed to the drugs or to a haunting. Weird things to happen to Molly and she thinks she's going crazy, tries to ask for help, however, Tim and her sister don't really listen but instead think Molly is having a drug relapse. There is a supernatural element versus an emotional decline and at times, you don't know which is which.

I recommend watching the special features that come with the movie, it offers a lot of background information.
