The Haunting of Molly Hartley

I'm often asked why I bother to keep this blog when a site like IMDB exists and this film would be a good way to start. Pop over to and you will find THE HAUNTING OF MOLLY HARTLEY rated at a whopping 3.6/10. Read through the user comments and you will discover one mighty heavy hate campaign against it and why you wonder is this important. Because this haunting isn't as bad as they claim. It marks the directorial debut of producer Mickey Liddell and while I'll grant you he's a little zinger happy in this project he has delivered a more than adequate teen set spooker. Haley Bennett does a great job as Molly and with Shannon Woodward, AnnLynne McCord and Shanna Collins (fantastic as a bible thumping psycho!) by her side this could easily be a CARRIE meets TWILIGHT gig. It's certainly not the greatest film but when you have a bunch of IMDB users ripping it a new asshole and they can't even wrap their heads around the "twist ending" (which, by the way, if you don't see coming means you've probably never seen a horror film before) then it is necessary for folks like me to have blogs like this. You'll have a sense of having seen much of it before but it's still worth a shot when nothing else is in the slot.
