    This softcore thriller runs strictly by the numbers.
  2. Tame and inoffensive, The Haunting of Molly Hartley is no more than a big-screen lasso for the "Gossip Girl" and "Supernatural" demographic.

    Molly Hartley is dull at worst and surprisingly spooky at best.

    Horror of the glossiest, safest kind. It's a boring bubblegum shocker that loses its flavor faster than Fruit Stripes.

    It's a horror film better suited for skittish cats than humans.
  6. Playing somewhat like a juvenile version of "Rosemary's Baby," this inept, incoherent attempt to cash in on young girls who can't buy a ticket to the R-rated "Saw V" (or are too lazy to sneak in) will be out of theaters long before the Halloween pumpkins start to rot.

    From Freestyle Releasing, the self-service distributor that brought you "D-War" and "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale," comes a movie even worse than those two combined.

    Although it's not a good movie, it certainly isn't as bad as the reviews I have been reading. It is predictable but ably made.

    Complete Garbage!! A mix of supernatural horror pastiche, bible-thumper=bad, but for good reason, and death (by deadline) to escape eternal Complete Garbage!! A mix of supernatural horror pastiche, bible-thumper=bad, but for good reason, and death (by deadline) to escape eternal death. Predictable in almost every detail, unimaginative in several others and just godawful. How more deserving horror movies get little to no release while rehashed crap that will only make you wish you were watching another movie gets mass distribution is beyond me. Avoid this movie. Go watch the Omen or Rosemary's Baby again or watch something totally unrelated. Hell, go watch Ginger Snaps instead of this tripe. Expand
