[6.25/10] Dorothy Mills (2008)


Dorothy Mills (2008)

Short review: "Dorothy Mills" is more of a psychological thriller marketed as pure horror, but it still contains enough elements to get the attention of horror junkies, who want to see something more than just a gore. There is great variety of scares in "Dorothy Mills". Set in Ireland, Dublin based psychiatrist Jane Van Dopp travels to a small island where the troubled girl lives. Whilst working on the case she begins to suspect the multiple personalities are more than just figments of Dorothy's imagination. Undoubtly, the biggest surprise here is the performance of newcomer Jenn Murray as Dorothy. Knowing that this movie was small budget and comparing her performance with the rest of the cast, one can only be amazed by her raw talent and presence. The debut of Jenn Murray is spectacular and this young unknown actress is stunning performing different characters with her multiple personality disorder. Dorothy is a flawless character, not only thanks to Jenn Murray, obviously, but also because the writers did a marvellous job creating this character. The photography of Irish cliffs is stunning too. All in all, "Dorothy Mills" is refreshing, mysterious, pretty intense, and brilliantly-acted psychological thriller, that deserves to be seen.

  • My Rating: 6.25/10

I thought this was a pretty decent movie, I didnt really find it scary in any way, but it did play out pretty interestingly.

Liked it, too. It was surprisingly well-made and Jenn Murray as amazing as Dorothy.
