Lovely Molly

When Molly (Gretchen Lodge) and her largely absent new husband (Johnny Lewis) move back into her childhood home, the ghosts of her abused childhood start to resurface. But are they real or imagined? She takes up a camcorder to find out.


Molly (Gretchen Lodge) — too often left on her own in the isolated house where she grew up — begins to sense a ghostly presence. She starts documenting everything with a camcorder to convince her husband (Johnny Lewis) and sister (Alexandra Holden) that she’s not insane. This horror melodrama from Blair Witch co-director Eduardo Sanchez surprisingly isn’t a found-footage picture — but a ghost story/crack-up effort which seesaws between The Entity and Repulsion. Lodge is uncomfortably convincing and there’s one memorably squirm-inducing act of violence.

Blair Witch veteran Eduardo Sanchez moves away from found footage to create an effectively creepy haunted houser with a strong central turn by Lodge.
