Directed by Eduardo Sanchez
A former addict begins to have strange episodes after moving into her childhood home in this relentlessly disturbing ghost story from BLAIR WITCH PROJECT director Eduardo Sanchez. But where that film relied on off-screen atmosphere to create dread, here Sanchez serves plenty of on-screen scares, resulting in a film that follows in the footsteps of graphic shockers like THE ENTITY. Richly exploring the parallels between psychosis, addiction and demonic possession, LOVELY MOLLY is a gripping look at how the traumas of the past come back to haunt us. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

So, so slow. It establishes atmosphere but the scares are misses and theres a horrible ringing sound effect used at nauseum. Takes itself wayyyy to seriously.
Rating it low for the use of its high frequency screaching. The tone became so bad I had to mute at all high tension moments in order to forgo worsening the headache. Maybe the story was good but I cant even tell as the need for constant muting took me so far out of the story that I lost all interest by the end.
Awful, couldn’t even sit through the whole thing.
This was way better than I expected it to be. Gretchen Lodge starts off a little rocky in the role as Molly, but settles into what winds up being an immersive, intense performance. It's definitely a little "been here, done that," but it does "less is more" in the right way for the most part. Some found the climax silly, but I found it haunting, even though it doesn't tie in with the beginning as well as I wanted it to.
