A rare PG-13 horror thriller, and starring some of todayâ€™s fastest rising young stars, the story of Molly Hartley unfolds at first like a teen drama as Molly (Haley Bennett, Music and Lyrics) bravely tries to start her life all over again after surviving her motherâ€™s bizarre attack on her in the midst of a psychotic breakdown. Now, in her posh new private school, Molly is finally starting to fit in, as she draws the thrilling attention of super popular rich-kid, Joseph (Chace Crawford, â€śGossip Girlâ€ť). But even as she is thrust into a realm of hot parties and hallway gossip, she is haunted by creepy visions and eerie experiences that have her wondering just what is really happening to her.
Everyone wants to help Molly succeed in moving past her motherâ€™s madness. Her father (Jake Weber, â€śMediumâ€ť) keeps a close watch over her. Her two new friends â€“ the rebellious Leah (Shannon Marie Woodward, â€śThe Richesâ€ť) and the angelically evangelical Alexis (Shanna Collins, â€śSwingtown,â€ť War of the Worlds) â€“ each try to pull her into their different social worlds. Even the schoolâ€™s psychologist Dr. Emerson (Nina Siemaszko, â€śThe West Wingâ€ť) is doing everything in her power to help Molly get a fresh lease on life.
Or so it seems.
Yet, even as Molly giddily flirts with Joseph and butts heads with Josephâ€™s competitive ex-girlfriend (Annalynne McCord, â€śNip/Tuckâ€ť), she canâ€™t escape the chilling visions and spine-tingling voices that follow her everywhere. What do they mean? Why wonâ€™t they leave her alone? Is Molly doomed to lose her mind as her mother did?
Or is a dark secret from the past pushing Molly ever closer to a completing a deal that will seal her future forever?
To play the double-edged role of Joseph, Mickey Liddell notes that he was looking for â€śa real Golden Boy, because if the Devilâ€™s going to send someone into that kind of situation, heâ€™s going to send someone who looks like a star, whoâ€™s always nice and wonderful yet whoâ€™s always mysteriously there around every corner.â€ť
They found those qualities in rapidly rising young star Chace Crawford, who rocketed into the spotlight with his role as troubled rich-kid Nate Archibald on the runaway hit TV series â€śGossip Girls.â€ť â€śWe saw a lot of guys we liked but the minute we look at Chace we knew thatâ€™s who the Devil would pick for this job. He was just so perfect because you just canâ€™t help but fall for him,â€ť says Liddell, â€śand he gave us everything.â€ť
