Dorothy Mills is a creepy little girl that looks like an albino version of Nellie Olson from Little House on the Prairie... she's also a horrible babysitter, jamming bottles into infants faces and screaming at them about how bad they are. She may also be schizophrenic or possessed, and a nymphomaniac alcoholic. She apparently has issues.
|If that picture doesn't creep you out, I'm not sure what will.|
Is Nellie/Dorothy possessed, or just a nut-bag? Is everyone on the Island hiding a terrible secret? Will the truth ever be known? Will that blind old woman ever stop being creepy? I won't spoil the ending here, but suffice it to say that I was actually satisfied by the ending.
|Stop staring at me!|
This isn't an Exorcist clone/ripoff/tribute as the poster and synopsis might imply, and it's not much like The Bad Seed/The Good Son either... it isn't even conventional Horror in some ways. Despite all fo that, the dread remains, and you can't help feeling it for the movie's entire running time. The plotline is more along the lines of "bad things that bad people do to each other, with a supernatural twist." I was hoping for more of a Demonic Possession type of thing, but I was pleasantly surprised with what I got, none the less.
The Exorcist in every "Possession" movie I see, with very few coming close to its level of execution.That's mostly my issue though, I suppose.
|Looks like it's lamb for dinner, boys.|
Devil into her house." or "She left us, without a word of her destination."
|The lesson here is to avoid small Island communities that call you "outsider."|
Dorothy Mills was a very well made film, with solid performances from its actors and atmosphere to spare, the only problem is it's not very scary. This is definitely not an in-your-face Possession movie, nor is it a killer kid flick; rather it's a subtle and nuanced psych job of a Horror Thriller which is sure to please if you like thinkers. Definitely check it out, but don't expect straight out "Horror."
Carice van Houten is hot.
