Consensus: The Haunting of Molly Hartley is a rather lifeless horror endeavor, with a pedestrian plot and few scares.

Tony Wong
Toronto Star

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

It's a horror film better suited for skittish cats than humans.

Brian Orndorf

There have been numerous features concerning the possibly psychotic lives of teen girls. "The Haunting of Molly Hartley" has to be one of the worst of the bunch.

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

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.

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

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.

Chelsea Bain
Boston Globe

It's no Rosemary's Baby, but for teens looking for a quick fix on All Hallow's Day, it will do.

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

The Haunting of Molly Hartley is not very scary or innovative, but it does manage to be interesting enough to watch at least once. It has its share of cheesy… More
