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

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.

Sanchez ratchets up the tension incrementally - things heard and not quite seen - creating a mood of unease that graduates in stages into full-blown horror.

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