Storyline

An old monastery in a small, remote village in Suffolk, England has been haunted by a local legend for centuries. Left in ruin and shrouded by the mystery of a dark spirit that wills young couples to suicide, the place has been avoided for years, marked only by a twisted, ancient tree with an ominous hollow said to be the home of great evil. When four friends on holiday explore the local folklore, they realize that belief in a myth can quickly materialize into reality, bringing horror to life for the town. Written by Anonymous

Great indie horror flick!
10 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Four pretty young things decide to spend the weekend together out in a fairly desolate part of Suffolk. While there, they discover a sinister tree, and some legends about the tree – as well as the fact that many couples have hung themselves from those ancient branches.

The actors are all superb. I really can't praise them enough – the characters are all rounded, and their relationships believable. Some of the scenes are fairly long, too, and the actors manage to keep the realism and the tension throughout.

Despite obvious budget restraints, the film is very stylish (in a good way). There has clearly been a lot of though given to making a standard 'camcorder footage' film look good, while remaining natural. In fact, this is undoubtedly the most natural 'found footage' film that I've seen.

What impressed me the most about HOLLOW, however, was just how old-school it is. The horror doesn't come from violence and gore, or from CGI creations, but from our fear of the unknown. A great deal of the screen is dark for huge portions of the film – we can't see what may be out there.

HOLLOW deserves to be seen as much more than a basic BLAIR WITCH knock-off. For a first feature, I'm very impressed. There is a lot of talent on display here.
