Creepy and Eduardo Sanchez’s “Lovely Molly” go together like bad Found Footage shakicam and “The Blair Witch Project”. Thankfully “Lovely Molly” isn’t entirely Found Footage, though Sanchez seems to be using a combination of that and a slightly shakicam-ish shooting style. Regardless, this movie still looks creepy as hell, in a “get under your skin” type of scary rather than the “guy with a knife jumps out of the closet” out of nowhere type of scary.
When newlywed Molly Reynolds returns to her long-abandoned family home, frightful reminders of a nightmarish childhood begin seeping into her new life. She soon begins an inexorable descent into an evil that blurs the lines between psychosis and possession.
Starring Gretchen Lodge, Johnny Lewis and Alexandra Holden.
