Lovely Molly, oh Lovely Molly. So, what’s it about?
„Newlywed Molly moves into her deceased father’s house in the countryside, where painful memories soon begin to haunt her.”
But that’s not all. Thrown into the mix are childhood abuse, mental illness and the supernatural.
Would all of that have been necessary? No. Does it add to the story? No, actually it is quite the opposite. This one is yet another on that is hard to describe without giving away too much. Not I would suggest you to watch it. Again, it is quite the opposite, but just in case you insist on checking it out.
This flick is one of those films, that tries to be everything to everyone, but in the end fails on every level. It wants to be family drama, it wants to be supernatural horror, it wants to be psychological thriller, it wants so much, but ends up being a hopeless mish mash.
It’s made by the dude, who thought up the Blair Witch Project. Not that I particularly liked BWP, but it’s success relied up to a very significant level, on the fact that it kept things simple and straight forward. Instead of sticking to that formula, he throws it all away for … well, this.
This film would have worked well, if it was “just” about a young woman going mental and as long as you as the viewer think that, the film is actually watchable, but as soon as the supernatural element appears, it all falls apart.
There is exactly one thing, that’s good about this film: Gretchen Lodge. If you, like me, enjoy watching Gretchen doing stuff, then this film has a certain appeal. Even more so if you consider, that she has some full frontal nudity scenes in this. Hmm, now that I think about it and as much as I enjoy those (and I enjoyed them a lot), there was actually no plot related justification to show her in the nude. xD
For those that are smart enough to stay away from the film and still want more details what’s going on, well here it is.
The protagonist got abused by her father as a child, who then got killed by her older sister and comes back in some kind of evil supernatural force, with a human body, but a horse’s head (!!!!), to molest her again and turn her into a killer (!!!) and eventually gives in to said supernatural entity completely.
No, I am dead serious, that’s the film and that is still not the most ridiculous part. There is a scene, where the “father ghost/demon” fucks her at her work place, which leads her to getting fired. No, I did not make that up. I didn’t, I swear.
Bottom line: Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!
