Critic Reviews for Hollow
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.
Like found footage horror movies? You'll change your mind after enduring the British import Hollow
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
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.
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.
Couples end up trapped near a haunted area in the British countryside in this found footage film and then it devolves into the most boring parts of The Blair Witch Project, never showing the viewer anything all that scary and relying on loud noises and jumpscares to get a rise out of you.
