Lovely Molly

Lovely Molly

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.

As someone in recovery and someone who works in a drug/alcohol rehab facility, I was immediately drawn to this movie based on the movie description alone. I was constantly trying to predict what was causing her deterioration; drug addiction, an entity or a mixture of the two. I could relate to the spiral on some level, but I still had questions until the very end. I believe that the ending pulled most of those loose strings together.

There’s plenty to recommend this one. By the end, it feels like a mostly satisfying watch, and that’s remarkable since the first 3/4 are excruciating. — It’s one of those infuriating stories that relies entirely on lousy communication. You’ve seen it before: if the protagonists would just talk to each other most of it wouldn’t happen. The audience knows what’s going on almost from the prologue but are expected to feel tension that only exists because the characters won’t talk or listen to each other. — In the final quarter, interesting things finally do happen. One could be forgiven for feeling it’s too little and too late, but the events that do unfold are compelling enough to almost redeem the rest of the experience. — Having been made after 2005, one of its principal themes is, of course, “men are bad so it’s cool to watch women kill them.” That subplot is badly woven into the main story, like they knew they wanted to put it somewhere but didn’t bother figuring out how to tie it to the primary theme... which seems lazy since the primary theme also revolves around a Bad Man. It should have been easy. — The mysterious and spooky imagery, when it does appear, is effective and hints at some complicated mythology, but is probably less clear than the filmmakers thought it was. It’s vague and suggestive without any path to interpretation. Not to say that that’s inherently bad, but a little clarity wouldn’t have been out of place.

There’s plenty to recommend this one. By the end, it feels like a mostly satisfying watch, and that’s pretty remarkable since the first three quarters of it are excruciating. — This is one of those infuriating films that relies entirely on lousy communication. You’ve seen it before: if the protagonists would just talk to each other most of the story wouldn’t happen. As a viewer you figure out what’s going on almost as soon as it starts - the movie’s prologue practically explains it - but you’re expected to experience tension that only exists because the characters simply won’t talk or listen to each other. It’s maddening. — In the final quarter, interesting things finally do happen. One could be forgiven for feeling it’s too little and too late, but the events that do unfold are compelling enough that they almost redeem the rest of the experience, hence my initial statement. — Having been made after 2005, one of its principal themes is, of course, “men are bad so it’s cool to watch women kill them.” The relevant subplot is poorly woven into the main story, as though they knew they wanted to put it somewhere and didn’t bother figuring out how to make it tie in to the primary theme... which seems especially lazy since the primary theme also revolves around a Bad Man. It should have been easy. — The mysterious and spooky imagery, when it does appear, is effective and hints at some complicated mythology, but is probably less clear than the filmmakers thought it was. It’s just vague and suggestive without any path to interpretation. Not to say that that’s inherently bad, but a little clarity wouldn’t have been out of place. — All that said, if you’re willing to experience the exasperation of the characters’ apparent vow of silence for much of the movie, I’d recommend it.
