Storyline

In Madrid, the boy Juan is terrified by the monster Hollowface and his mother is unable to protect him so summons Father Antonio to exorcise the monster from their lives. In London, the construction worker John Farrow is very close to his teenage daughter Mia. One day, Mia is spending the day at her grandparents' house in the countryside with her mother Susanna and she finds a box with the story of Hollowface hidden in a tree. Soon Mia sees the monster Hollowface in the closet of her bedroom and John defends her. When they are attacked for the second time, the security camera that John has installed does not show any intruder. Are Mia and John delusional? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Juan: The shadow monster woke up. It saw the boy in the pot and said:
Juan: [making his voice gruff] "Mmmm. I'm starving. I'm going to eat you up."
Juan: So the monster opened his mouth wide and swallowed the little tailor whole. The boy fell and fell into a dark cave filed with slime...
Luisa: Is that it?
Juan: That's all I could come up with.
Luisa: Well, you'll think of something tomorrow. Let's go to bed.

Well worth a trip to the cinema!
14 September 2011 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm not normally a fan of scary movies but the inclusion of Clive Owen convinced me to give this film a look and I wasn't disappointed. It's cleverly constructed & wastes no time setting up the creepy atmosphere which lasts throughout. To some extent the storyline was predictable however the interesting ending left me more than satisfied. Here's hoping they never make a sequel as it's perfect as a one off experience.

Try not to watch the trailer or read anything more than a brief summary and make your way to the cinema as soon as this one comes out as it's worthy of a cinema experience!
