Forget everything that you think you know about DOROTHY MILLS.
You know nothing.
Dorothy has been accused of nearly strangling a baby in her care. Enter Jane, the court appointed psychologist sent to evaluate her mental state. I don't want to say any more and ruin the twists, curves and flat out blind sides this film delivers.
DOROTHY MILLS is fascinating, haunting, creepy. On certain levels, it reminded me of THE WICKER MAN. No, not that horrible remake with Nicholas Cage. The stunning original 1973 WICKER MAN. The isolation of the island and the pagan images during the dance evolved that whispful quality of THE WICKER MAN.
Everything about this story works. The characters, the setting, the twist within a twist within a twist. DOROTHY MILLS is like a Russian puzzle box. You think you know where you're going and there you are, inside another box.
I can't recommend DOROTHY MILLS enough! Just be prepared to lose the next couple hours and be mesmerized. It's nothing short of breathtaking.

"Dorothy Mills has a lot going for it. Its well acted, has a nice plot with a bit of originality to it (pretty rare nowadays), well written, well shot, the recipe for a stellar movie. Unfortunately I also found it to be quite dull. The movie is very somber, and meant to be as such, but it was just so grey, it kind of made me tune out at times. Nothing more I can say about it really, it has a multitude of good points, but just came off a little slow. Still recommended though."
REAL GOOD, DIDN'T EXPECTED!!!

"This was a very well made movie with quality acting by all. The description of the movie does not tell the whole story. There is much more to the story line that is very interesting. There's a lot of tension and a few bloody scenes, mainly dead sheep. Dorothy is a "gifted" young girl who many believe is under demonic control. A doctor comes to comes to her home after a disturbing incident Dorothy has while babysitting. The doctor believes Dorothy has multiple personalities. This is when the story really takes shape and draws you in. What is really Dorothy's gift??? You will have to watch the movie to find out. Very entertaning story and well worth a watch."

"I loved this movie! I was captivated from beginning to end. At first I didn't know what to make of Dorothy, but I was blown away by how I came to be pulled into her character. This movie was chilling, suspenseful, and moving. You will love her and everyone she is!"
