The Hollow Reviews
Now, that disclaimer out of the way, I know this film isn't perfect, but let's look at the positives: The cast has some highlights with Kaley Cucuo, Judge Reinhold, Eileen Brennan, and Stacy Keach. Good to see familiar faces in a movie that normally is padded out with no namers.
The main thing I liked about this film is that it felt like a PG-13 extended episode of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?". The tale is your typical Halloween fair: It's Halloween and the descendant of Ichabod Crane is haunted by his family's nemesis for a final showdown. But to spice things up we get some light cussing (no f-bombs, but some s-words and b-words) and lots of sex jokes/references. There's no overt sex (There's a brief nip slip, but that's all you ghouls are going to get), in fact, I'm surprised this got an R-rating, it's clearly a PG-13 at the most... There's a body count and the film shows some blood, not on par with other horror films, but enough to keep it out of the TV-rating range.
I was entertained. A fun, brief (hour twenty run time) Halloween movie tale. As we are amping up to Halloween, this is a perfect warm up movie toward the beginning of the countdown.
Uh, the bad? It is straightforward. There's not a lot to overly complicate it, but also nothing much to make it stand out. There's a few plot holes if you think about the film... which we are all best not to do. Nothing too bad that would make me give it a lesser rating however. A solid better than average!
I remember it being a lot better..........
