The Haunting of Molly Hartley
Friday 14th May 2010
Icon Home Entertainment is pleased to announce the DVD premiere of the high school horror The Haunting of Molly Hartley starring Chace Crawford, Haley Bennett, AnnaLynne McCord, Shannon Woodward and Jake Weber. This spellbinding teen horror thriller will be released on DVD on 14th June 2010.
Described as "Carrie for the Gossip Girl generation," the story unfolds with non-stop suspense, where ominous evil lurks just beneath the lush surfaces of a teenage girl's private high school world - and it holds the rights to her very soul. Now, on the eve of her 18th birthday, Molly Hartley is about to discover the truth of just who, or rather what, it is she is destined to become. Molly (Haley Bennett) is a 17 year old girl who's physically recovered from a stab wound inflicted by her tormented mother (Marin Hinkle). The psychological scars that remain run deeper than she realises. To help her start a new life after the trauma, her father (Jake Weber) enrols her in a new private high school.
With her eighteenth birthday fast approaching, Molly is haunted by nightmares of her mother's attack upon her while dealing with the stress of being the new girl in school. Molly experiences great difficulty fitting in, battling headaches, nosebleeds, and being haunted by mysterious voices. Symptoms of psychosis that affect her seem to foreshadow an onset of the mental illness that took control of her mother's life, but of several different explanations for her distress, the most unforeseen and terrifying is revealed as the truth. With her father quick to offer her medication to calm her down, Molly is more concerned with her psychotic mother, who is locked away inside a local mental hospital and haunts the frightened teenager's every move.
The Plot In Depth
After surviving a vicious stabbing at the hands of her psychotic mother (who eventually is committed to a mental institution), Molly and her father, move to a new city to make a fresh start. When she is enrolled in a posh private high school, Molly meets 'Leah' (Shannon Woodward), a rebellious teen with an anger management problem; 'Suzie' (AnnaLynne McCord - the new Beverly Hills 90210; TV series), who's jealous and spiteful; and 'Alexis' (Shanna Collins); a born-again Christian. Molly also meets Joseph Young (Gossip Girl's heartthrob Chace Crawford), who just happens to be Suzie's ex as well as the one of the richest, most popular boys on campus.
Just when everything is starting to fall into place, Molly's life is confronted with a series of relentless, horrifying consequences as she learns the shocking revelation leading up to her 18th birthday. Ultimately, Molly discovers that her mother, and others who share her mother's concerns, want her killed in order to save her from a preordained life as a servant of the Devil.
Helmed by first-time director, Mickey Liddell, this gripping and nail-biting thriller stands apart as a truly chilling tale that combines edge-of-your-seat suspense with a compelling mystery steeped in the supernatural. If you're a fan of horror films including Twilight and Carrie and watch popular television series like Supernatural and Gossip Girl, then The Haunting of Molly Hartley will be right up your street.
