Newlyweds Molly and Tim have just settled down in the long-abandoned family home of Molly's deceased parents. Happy and in love, things are looking up for the couple, until strange reminders of Molly's nightmarish childhood begin to resurface. There is a spiritual force in the house, and with Molly alone for long stretches due to her husband's truck driver profession, she begins to fall deeper and deeper into depravity. Eduarado Sanchez's Lovely Molly is a rather forgettable horror film that is light on actually scares. Sanchez, whose last film was The Blair Witch Project, shows that he has no idea how to built an atmosphere, often relying on generic and/or cheap tricks to try and scare the viewer - often going with a jerking camera or off-screen noises. The only somewhat bright spot of the film is Grethchen Lodge's performance as Molly, a character who teeters on the edge of psychosis. The films ideas are reductive and histrionic, never giving the viewer much reason to care about the characters or the underlying dark past. The story lacks cohesiveness and pretty much all basic common sense or logic, with the execution of this evil force coming off more laughable than actually scary.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
