Still shot from the movie: The Haunting of Molly Hartley.

The Haunting of Molly Hartley

Molly Hartley (Haley Bennett) is dealing with some serious physiological damage incurred during her mother's psychotic breakdown. But a move to a new town and a new school doesn't give her the new start she'd hope for. Instead the seventeen-year-old finds herself facing all the usual challenges of trying to fit in, with the added trauma of haunting flashbacks and acute paranoia. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Why is the protagonist in many horror films female? How would this movie be different if Molly was a male character?

Parents may want to be prepared to discuss topics surrounding Christian religious doctrine and satanic possession—two topics that are core to the theme of this film.
