A contemptible cross between To The Devil a Daughter and a dark version of High School Musical (without the music).
| Original Score: 1/5
...an entirely forgettable (and utterly lightweight) horror endeavor.
| Original Score: 2/4
A watered-down version of prior, better films, 'The Haunting of Molly Hartley' is as dumb as a box of Halloween candy.
| Original Score: .5/4
Why do filmmakers bother? Are they crazy? Are we crazy? And if not, why do we keep paying $8 to see the same movie again?
| Original Score: 1.5/5
I can't believe that Freestyle actually got this movie to be released in the theaters. It's dull, boring, and at best, laughably bad.
| Original Score: 0/4
...almost as inept as the movie's advertising campaign, which gives away the 'surprise' ending on the posters.
What transpires is everybody's guess, and all of it leads to what may take the blue ribbon for the least exciting climax ever to festoon a horror picture.
| Original Score: .5/5
Story about the devil's daughter that is poorly written but well acted
| Original Score: 4/10
The acting in Haunting is cardboard as can be, and although Bennett tries hard to engage us, she‚(TM)s seemingly interchangeable with any number of teen actresses currently roaming the airwaves at the CW.
The Haunting of Molly Hartley, sort of an updated Rosemary's Baby for teens, sucks most of the suspense out of its own suspense-thriller before the story even gets going.
| Original Score: 2/4
A more accurate title would have been The Annoying Flashbacks of Molly Hartley, or Molly Hartley's Possibly Genetic Mental Disorder or even Molly Hartley's Series of Super-Sucky Unfortunate Events.
If you get past the retro Nancy Drew title, this is a worthwhile effort.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The Haunting of Molly Hartley isn't the least bit haunting. It's just cheap.
| Original Score: 2/5
God and Satan duke it out for the soul of a young girl in The Haunting of Molly Hartley, an unexpectedly cynical addition to the teen-scream genre.
It's a horror film better suited for skittish cats than humans.
| Original Score: D+
It would take hallucinations of a powerful kind indeed to find anything worthwhile in The Haunting of Molly Hartley, a dead-on-arrival thriller that resolutely fails to come to life.
It's no Rosemary's Baby, but for teens looking for a quick fix on All Hallow's Day, it will do.
As it races from one unlikely trauma to the next for poor Molly, the movie forgets one key thing: The devil is in the details.
| Original Score: 1/4
'The Haunting of Molly Hartley' left me as disappointed as a youngster who receives a box of raisins at every house on his/her trick-or-treat route.
I've read fortune cookies that were scarier, not to mention smarter and more interesting.
