If you get past the retro Nancy Drew title, this is a worthwhile effort.

A contemptible cross between To The Devil a Daughter and a dark version of High School Musical (without the music).

Overall, there's nothing in The Haunting of Molly Hartley for horror fans. It's not even a remotely decent effort.

...an entirely forgettable (and utterly lightweight) horror endeavor.

A watered-down version of prior, better films, 'The Haunting of Molly Hartley' is as dumb as a box of Halloween candy.

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?

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.

...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.

Story about the devil's daughter that is poorly written but well acted

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
