tiff 2011: Eduardo Sánchez's Lovely Molly gets a Spooky New Trailer


He is one of the pioneers of the 'found footage' in the Horror genre (though not the first) Eduardo Sánchez and its amazing to think The Blair Witch Project was 12 years ago a movie he  co directed as well as co-wrote is back back in that genre with his latest chiller LOVELY MOLLY.

The movie is due to premier this week at Toronto Film Festival a movie that stars Gretchen Lodge and Johnny Lewis as newly weds who return to Molly's abandoned family home whose nightmarish childhood returns to haunt her once again.She soon begins an inexorable descent into evil that blurs the lines between psychosis and possession.

Whilst the aftermath of Blair Witch Project 2 you would expect Sanchez possibly disappear into oblivion, but he hasn't. He got himself together and worked his way up the independent horror scene making a name for himself with films like Altered an excellent flick which is very underrated . Lovely Molly certainly looks like it'll push Sanchez back into the najor spotlight especially if its getting a run at TIFF, it looks a slow burner which is very dark in nature which will question the line between psychological effects or supernatural possession



Newlyweds Molly (Gretchen Lodge) and Tim (Johnny Lewis) move into Molly’s deceased father’s house in the countryside. An ex-addict with a deeply troubled past, Molly is strong in her new life of recovery. Unexplained disturbances in the night unnerve the couple, and when her husband goes away for business, Molly is left in a house that holds many painful memories. Her isolation is soon shattered by a mali­cious presence that unleashes a physical and mental assault. As she struggles to regain footing in her simple existence, Molly’s grip on reality begins to waver. Her erratic behav­iour is a warning sign to her friends and family, whose interventions drive her further into solitary torment and spur a deep, dark infidelity within her.
Molly’s life as the wife of a trucker and a member of the custodial staff at a local mall imbues the story with a refreshing working-class realism that enhances the corrupting presence of an evil seeking to defile every­thing she holds dear. Newcomer Lodge’s compelling transformation from withdrawn waif to haunted seductress is harrowing and strikingly real. A battle rages inside Molly for control of her newfound sobriety, her life and her very soul. Lodge displays arresting intensity as a victim of supernatural abuse, and when her inner turmoil compels Molly to lash out, those around her had better be on guard — because neither she nor the evil that stalks her are willing to go down easy
