Guide Review - 'Lovely Molly' DVD Review
The Blair Witch Project co-creator Eduardo Sanchez may never escape the shadow of his seminal smash hit film, but after several quiet years immediately following its 1999 release, he's put together a string of excellent, under-the-radar fright flicks: Altered, Seventh Moon and now Lovely Molly. As with his two previous movies, Sanchez displays his keen ability to build suspense as a director, delivering organic creepiness without force-feeding scares. His script is similarly restrained, eschewing a lot of over-the-top gore and visuals and, much like Blair Witch, allowing the viewer to interpret the nature of the events onscreen.
It would be great to see Sanchez get a shot at a bigger-budget major-studio production, if for no other reason than so we won't have to suffer through another The Apparition.
