100 Discs of Christmas #77 – Lovely Molly (2011)


Lovely Molly is an outstanding new horror film from Eduardo Sánchez, the co-director of The Blair Witch Project. He is widely regarded as the man who invented, or at least helped champion, the found-footage horror movie, and his latest chiller is an exceptional marriage of third-person and first-person narrative filmmaking.

The performances from the leading actors are pitch-perfect, especially Gretchen Lodg. Although she is an actor with very little past experience, I expect Lodg to receive a lot more work after this film. Her performance is terrifyingly convincing.

Lovely Molly is arguably derivative, but its tone and the way Sánchez handles his material makes it succeed and feel fresh and original. Get it on blu-ray, turn off the lights, and enjoy one of the creepiest little horrors of the year.
