Product Description

When a gloomy, God-fearing island community is rocked by the murder of a young child, a psychologist is called in to examine Dorothy Mills, the teenager accused of the crime. Despite the villagers' resistance, the therapist soon suspects that Dorothy suffers from multiple personality disorder. But when the girl speaks in the voice of the woman's own deceased son, what first seemed like madness may - as the locals believe - be Dorothy channeling the dead. A spine-chilling blend of psychological thriller and gothic terror, Dorothy Mills is eerie, suspenseful and truly frightening.

Amazon.com

Though compared to The Exorcist because of teenager Dorothy Mills’ (Jenn Murray) tendency towards possession, this psychological thriller feels much closer to a combination of Don’t Look Now, and The Wicker Man, both of which are better than Dorothy Mills. Though a gorgeous setting (an island off mainland Ireland) does lend the film clammy ambiance, for the most part there is little surprise or suspense. The saving grace of Dorothy Mills is actor Carice Van Houten’s portrayal of Jane, a traumatized Dublin psychiatrist assigned to the case of a teen who allegedly strangled a baby while babysitting. The second she ferries out to a creepy island populated by evangelical, semi-pagan zealots, Jane begins to experience what it means to be an outsider accidentally privy to some dark secrets exposed surrounding Mills’ mysterious case. Jane, who champions Mills as an unfortunate victim of schizophrenia, relives her own psychological battles through this young girl. Lame depictions of antics enacted by rebellious locals do a disservice to the true story here, which concerns the psychic bond between two females. Like Don’t Look Now, a sense of disorientation is created by Jane’s foreign locale, to this film’s credit, and her memories of loss do register as real tragedy as did Julie Christie’s in what was, perhaps, the best film ever made about parents processing the loss of their children. Director Agnes Merlet also did a service to Mills’ character in casting Murray, whose white hair and pallid complexion look ghostly enough to create some spook. But the story is just not that compelling. The details of Mills’ psychosis are explained away in a clichéd manner, leaving little for the viewer to wonder about in this supposedly supernatural tale. --Trinie Dalton

I came across DOROTHY MILLS quite by accident, and I'm certainly glad I did! With its perfectly unsettling mix of various (yet original) elements from THE EXORCIST, THE WICKER MAN, WAKE WOOD, and SYBIL, DM should be a supernatural classic. The interplay between Jane (Carice van Houten) and Dorothy (Jenn Murray) make the building horror absolutely believable, and make up the core of this dark gem. If you are a lover of the paranormal, psycho-thriller w/ heavy doses of dread and paranoia, then DOROTHY MILLS will fill your soul w/ ice...

Forget everything that you think you know about DOROTHY MILLS.

You know nothing.

Dorothy has been accused of nearly strangling a baby in her care. Enter Jane, the court appointed psychologist sent to evaluate her mental state. I don't want to say any more and ruin the twists, curves and flat out blind sides this film delivers.

DOROTHY MILLS is fascinating, haunting, creepy. On certain levels, it reminded me of THE WICKER MAN. No, not that horrible remake with Nicholas Cage. The stunning original 1973 WICKER MAN. The isolation of the island and the pagan images during the dance evolved that whispful quality of THE WICKER MAN.

Everything about this story works. The characters, the setting, the twist within a twist within a twist. DOROTHY MILLS is like a Russian puzzle box. You think you know where you're going and there you are, inside another box.

I can't recommend DOROTHY MILLS enough! Just be prepared to lose the next couple hours and be mesmerized. It's nothing short of breathtaking.

I would have to say that I knew where this was going. It was pretty easy to determine. I understood why the townspeople thought her remarkable, especially for the setting. The outcome was pretty good, knowing it's what was expected. I would say it's a light horror. No gory details so it's safe for those that don't like the "blood stuff".

Spoiler alert: Don't read further if you don't want to know about the storyline:

It's patterned after The Three Faces of Eve. That's my best guess. So, that pretty much tells you where it's all coming from. Right down to the "history" of the "why". I look at this as a remake of Eve, but from a different view. It's a child, not an adult telling their story. I liked the Eve movie, so this one was right on target.

This movie was quite the disappointment. I read the reviews (or should I say warnings) but felt the trailer really offered a good mystery/thriller movie, so went with it. Most of the 1-2 star reviews were spot on. This movie was very disappointing. It was not scary, thrilling, suspensful, or evil (as proclaimed). Sure the storyline was (or I should say, could have been), but the delivery was where this movie fell short...very short. If you like scary, horror, evil, suspense, exorcism type movies etc, don't buy! You will certainly not get what you are looking for from this movie.

Plot - IMDB
A psychiatrist is assigned to work on the case of a disturbed young girl.

Review - 2/5
On the cover it says 'A contemporary take on The Exorcist', yeah not really. This is absolutely nothing like The Exorcist nor is it as entertaining or scary. I almost fell asleep at the agonizing slow pace I had to deal with the first hour. It picks up towards the end, but it's not anything new. Tried to throw some awful twist into it, and frankly I wasn't shocked or amazed. Can we please stop making possession/split personality films. Geez!

WOW...

I can only say "wow"... this film boosts the performance of a lifetime. Young Jenn Murray is simply amazing as this young girl suffering from multiple personalities that may or may not be the work of the dead.

She is simply amazing!

The story is quite simple: a doctor from the mainland goes to a remote Irish island where 15 year old Dorothy Mills seems to have murdered a baby. As she starts to know Dorothy and spend some time with her, she uncovers the many personalities inhabiting the girl's body. There is an innocent 3 year old girl... a boy who protects Dorothy from killing herself... a slut who teases the town's men... and Duncan who is a little more violent than the others.

It all seems to be a simple case of multiple personalities until young Dorothy talks to the doctor as her lost son. And suddenly we start to understand that there's more to the town's dead than we can see... because they all end up in Dorothy's body.

This film is much more a FABULOUS supernatural/psychological drama than plain horror. And in its own right, it is truly amazing. The story is magnificently well told with unbelievable performances. The direction is sharp, precise and masterful. Everything here is right.

Don't expect any gore.
Expect an inexpensive Irish film that will give you an amazing experience seldom found in films with 10 times the budget.

Simply amazing!

The story was very good and the actors were really good. I have to say that I'm mystified as to why this would be compared to "The Exorcist," since there is absolutely nothing whatsoever in this movie that resembles it in anyway. This story is another of the latest trend in paranormal stories wherein someone is possessed by the dead victim of a crime committed by someone still living. The difference here is that it's actually quite well-done. The lead actresses, Jenn Murray as Dorothy Mills and Carice van Houton as Jane, are exceptional, as is the rest of the cast. I would highly recommend this movie.
