Movie Info

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. -- (C) Official Site

The post-'Blair Witch' shaky-cam horror movie, already teetering on the edge of oblivion, drops off a cliff with this micro-budget British effort ...

If "Hollow" is found footage, then for gosh's sake, put it back. The only shocking thing about this British direct-to-video import is how it ever got made in the first place.

Eschewing the cheap shocks so many horrors use, Axelgaard sustains the tension and dread until the end.

The film's a goner but hopefully the four talented actors at its centre will make it out alive.

Audience Reviews for Hollow


Another found footage film. I thought it was done effectively in the last 10-15 minutes. It has its flaws but you could view it as a British take on Blair Witch Project with better acting and better construction on the plot.

I'm so sick of found footage horror movies that if I knew Hollow was 1 I don't think I would've watched it.I think what made me want to watch it in the 1st place was the cover.To my suprise it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.It kept me entertained from the time it started till the time it was over.My only problem with the movie was after watching the beginning, there's no doubt how it's going to end.I think if you like found footage movies or not, You should give Hollow a chance

Two young couples head off to the English countryside where one (Plumtree) has inherited the home of her deceased Grandfather, once the local priest. Plumtree is spooked out by the appearance of a tree which terrified her as a child. The subject of local legends, the tree seems to be a malevolent force intent on destroying anyone who comes into contact with it. By this point, the found footage genre has well and truly shot its load. Recent sequels to found footage hits have opted to shun the technique in favor of traditional film-making, a sign that its been done to death. 'Hollow' is one of the worst examples of the sub-genre, most of its running time consisting of unwatchable, badly framed shots. The final twenty minutes are particularly tedious, taking place inside a broken down car. There's only so long you can look at an out-of-focus car seat. Please, put this fad to sleep.
