June 1, 2012
Some of the shock effects in Lovely Molly are successfully disorienting, but too many of its ideas are reductive and histrionic, such as those concerning the male victimization of women, vengeance and mental illness.

Gretchen Lodge constantly rises above the film and the material. She alone provides good reasons why younger film-goers who are inexperienced in this type of horror might well find it gripping, shocking and enjoyably nasty.

Has all the interest of watching an inexplicably untreated wound fester.

I can't say Molly is lovely enough to recommend.

[Its] cynical hedging of its psychological/supernatural bets seems mostly designed to breed sequels.

Sanchez ... is not making his debut here, and after more than a decade he should be willing to do something besides jerking the camera around and making noises offscreen.

The movie's young lead, Gretchen Lodge, making her big-screen debut, demonstrates a natural star presence.

I don't think I've ever been so bummed out by a horror flick as I was by writer-director Eduardo Sánchez's Lovely Molly. And I've seen every single Friday the 13th.

Depressing and lazily nonsensical...

The film's inconsistent, largely bankrupt style is second to how hard and tackily it leans on the horror of child abuse to goose audiences.

Silly Molly.
June 21, 2012
The script lacks focus, the to-camera element doesn't add anything new and the film ultimately fails to provide any scares, beyond the odd soundtrack-assisted jump.

Common sense and basic logic are left are the door; there's a brief creature effect that is laughably, outlandishly awful.

Sánchez is going for a fear that's closer to home than any mysterious bumps in the night. His Polanskian psychodrama, shrouded by our expectations, develops violently and, it must be said, with little sense of actual domestic tragedy.

This genre of horror film is played out - or at least this slight, rarely unnerving effort makes it seem so.

The film presents us with too many unearned revelations, and it unravels.

If the people in it behaved in a logical way, then there wouldn't be a movie.

Sanchez has not had an easy time since Blair Witch - and this hand-held rerun is unlikely to make it any better.

There's a pleasing cyclical neatness to Lovely Molly.
