Gretchen Lodge makes her screen debut this weekend in the latest from "The Blair Witch Project" helmer Eduardo Sanchez, the possession/psychological horror thriller "Lovely Molly." Lodge gives a ferocious, fearless and deeply intimate performance in a film that strays from the found footage genre Sanchez helped to create, instead rendering a much more personal horror film that utilizes first person camera footage as one of the many tools in the telling the story of Molly, a young newlywed who begins to lose her grip on reality. Or does she?

Lovely Molly


If you could play any of the iconic horror scream queen roles, like "Carrie," or "Rosemary’s Baby," which one would you choose? Dream remake? 


If anyone even began to mention the possibility of “Rosemary’s Baby,” I would be like “I can’t even let you finish, yes!” I adore it. I don’t think that it could be remade but another film-- I hadn’t seen it until after I filmed “Lovely Molly,” which I guess is kind of a crime, but now that I’ve seen it I adore it-- is “A Woman Under the Influence.” [Gena Rowlands] is incredible in that. I don’t know, I don’t think a remake would work of that necessarily. It’s not really horror but if it was remade, I would also do in less than a heartbeat, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.” In an instant. The Bette Davis role. She’s my favorite. I have many more male idols than I do female, but she’s so strong and powerful-- anything Bette Davis, I am a huge fan. 



What’s next for you?


I am writing right now, I am in the midst of writing a short and then also a full length screenplay. They are very different from one another but they are taking up a lot of my time, in a good way. I am ready to get in front of the camera on a role again, but also excited about these two projects. Just one of them for me to star, but both are topics that have interested me because they are two-sided. Because you can look at the two issues that I am writing about in very different ways on both sides, and that interests me.

Gretchen Lodge stars in "Lovely Molly" opening this weekend.
