The Haunting of Molly Hartley isn't the least bit haunting. It's just cheap.

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.

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 flirts with having something to say about budding female sexuality and evangelical religion, but it winds up being a pale copy of several of Roman Polanski's more chilling films.

High school horror flick more dreary than spooky.

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.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

This is a prime example of horror conceived by people who don't know the genre, for people who don't like horror films. Practically nothing here is interesting, involving, or new, and, worst of all, it isn't even entertaining as pure kitsch.

For those who find bloody noses and whispered voices bone-chilling, heeeeeeere's The Haunting of Molly Hartley.

I've read fortune cookies that were scarier, not to mention smarter and more interesting.

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.

The story's a snooze, so the filmmakers punch it up with smash cuts and thunderclaps that turn the most laughably banal items into cheap jack-in-the-box shocks. They'll make you flinch -- but then again, so will most of the dialogue.

When it comes to excruciating Halloween activities, I think I'd prefer a Milky Way/razor blade surprise to this asinine, pathetic motion picture.

...almost as inept as the movie's advertising campaign, which gives away the 'surprise' ending on the posters.

It's no Rosemary's Baby, but for teens looking for a quick fix on All Hallow's Day, it will do.

At least High School Musical 3 is proud to be innocent; Haunting is as benign as the gym class bully who backs down at the slightest challenge.

It was as predictable as a professional wrestling match and had about as much passion as a drunken sloth.

'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.

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.

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.
