Molly’s only hope is an exorcism by a defrocked priest (Devon Sawa) looking to redeem himself and save her life before her hideous transformation is complete…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

” …for a movie that shouldn’t exist, it’s pretty enjoyable. The actors are good, the music is really good (quick: name all the good scores in DTV movies. Yeah.), and the mix of Rosemary’s Baby-esque “she’s the chosen one” stuff and good ol’ fashioned exorcism motifs works well more often than not.” Horror Movie a Day

“What is most depressing about the existence of The Exorcism of Molly Hartley is that people are going to confuse this with the infinitely better The Exorcism of Emily Rose. We must all stop this from happening, and now your curiosity has been indulged you can move on with your lives.” Bloody Disgusting

“Devon Sawa and Gina Holden played believable roles and their attempt at making a lackluster script worth watching was commendable … Linds’ performance felt forced and empty, even when she wasn’t actually speaking but only mouthing the words of Satan, which felt closer to the Linda Blair comedy Repossessed.” Fangoria

“This hollow, straight-to-DVD effort doesn’t bother to make the characters relatable or interesting like The Exorcist. It doesn’t even try to address the conflicts of faith and law like the heartbreaking Exorcism of Emily Rose. Frankly, this movie doesn’t care about being any good, and you shouldn’t care enough to see it.” HorrorTalk

  1. What bothers me about many of these Exorcism movies always depict the victims as horribly defaced. What gives?
