John's Horror Banana-nanza Episode Fourty-Eight : Lovely Molly
What we have here is a posession movie. Not the kind you'd expect, but still, it is what it is. There are parts of this film that can be frightening, but there are also a lot of loose ends that just don't carry the story even a little.
Molly and her new husband Tim move into a house that her dad just died in. Right away, I'm really confused. Why move there? Things get strange when Tim goes to work leaving Molly alone at night. Doors start banging, there are voices throughout the house, and eventually, with Molly trying to film what is happening, an invisible force attacks her.
Tim comes home one night to find Molly sitting on the edge of her bed naked. In fact, most of the film is Molly walking around or doing something half dressed or naked. She's raped in a hallway by an invisible force, and when her boss questions what she's doing in the security video that catches it, she breaks down and screams at him.
Molly is addicted to heroine, so Tim assumes that has something to do with it. Also, every now and then, we get a POV shot of the neighbors, which means nothing until the end of the movie. It just seems weird and out of place.
There are elements of demonic posession that are actually creepy in this movie. There is a constant reference to a creature with the head of a horse. But really, nothing is fully explained, and when the end comes and Molly attacks Tim, you'll probably think it's a cop-out. I know I did.
Do I recommend this? Well, it's not bad for a jump scare or two, but the strange sexual element and the wandering plot make it a tough watch overall. I guess, maybe, give it a try. It just didn't really do it for me.
The trailer really doesn't hold any clues.
