Lovely Molly (2011)

After watching the post apocalyptic entry Hell last night, I decided to spend some more time behind the screen with the extra hour of sleep that came from the calendar. I was also to answer a few emails, as some interesting Bigfoot news popped up from my good friend Jon in Connecticut from the Smoking Gun Research Agency (SGRA). I will keep you posted on details as they arise. Armed with some time, I decided to watch Lovely Molly from 2011.
Plot/ Newlywed Molly moves into her deceased father's house in the countryside, where painful memories soon begin to haunt her
This film by Eduardo Sánchez, he of The Blair Witch Project fame, re-enters that horror realm with this interesting endeavor. Sure, there are some similarities to his incredible debut, but this one is much more than that. This one is more of a straightforward supernatural flick full of atmosphere. The scripting and storyline is complex, the performances solid and the cinematography works. Sure, there seems to be a bit of a disconnect between the first and second parts of the movie, but that can easily be overlooked. In the end, this is one of the more interesting horror movies I have seen in some time. Yes, it is not for everyone, and some fans may be turned off by the lack of action, but if you like psychological horror with a supernatural edge, check it out.

  1. I watched this one a short while back, and thought it was pretty decent. I see why it could turn some people off with it's creeping approach to horror instead of a balls-to-the-wall aesthetic, but it kept me glued to the screen the whole time.

    Sanchez has an upcoming Bigfoot movie called EXISTS, by the way, which is one I'm looking forward to. Some sources claim it's the beginning of a trilogy--but then again, that's what they said about BLAIR WITCH.

    Nice write-up.
