not bad.could have used a more convincing ending
7 March 2010 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

this is an interesting psychological suspense thriller.not really scary though.and watchable for the most part.but i'm not sold on that ending it felt kind of tacked on.at the very least it isn't the conventional way to end this type of movie.besides,it was just way too easy.i'd be interested to see if there was actually an alternate ending at one point.there were some positive things,though.for one thing,there were no cheap jump scares,and no ghostly figure hiding behind the door or in the mirror.i didn't find the acting that bad either.it's a short movie too,clocking in at less than ninety minutes before the end credits roll.all in all,it's entertaining and passes the time.a different ending and i might have rated a bit higher.as it is,The Haunting of Molly Hartley is a 6/10
