The Haunting of Molly Hartley
Go and Broken Hearts Club producer Mickey Liddell makes his feature directorial debut with this suspense thriller about a high-school student who arrives in a new town only to find that her frightful past won't be forgotten so easily. Molly Hartley (Haley Bennett) was all ready for a fresh start in life, and kindly classmate Joseph (Chace Crawford) was more than willing to help out by showing her the ropes around school. But Molly Hartley is a girl with a sinister secret. Only when she discovers the truth about who she really is will she finally understand what she might one day become. ~… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you get past the retro Nancy Drew title, this is a worthwhile effort."
‑ Tony Wong, Toronto Star
"It's a horror film better suited for skittish cats than humans."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"A contemptible cross between To The Devil a Daughter and a dark version of High School Musical (without the music)."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"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?"
‑ David Bezanson,
"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."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The Haunting of Molly Hartley isn't the least bit haunting. It's just cheap."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"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."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
" entirely forgettable (and utterly lightweight) horror endeavor."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"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."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Story about the devil's daughter that is poorly written but well acted"
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
"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."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's no Rosemary's Baby, but for teens looking for a quick fix on All Hallow's Day, it will do."
‑ Chelsea Bain, Boston Globe
"A watered-down version of prior, better films, 'The Haunting of Molly Hartley' is as dumb as a box of Halloween candy."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"...almost as inept as the movie's advertising campaign, which gives away the 'surprise' ending on the posters."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"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."
‑ Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine
