The low-budget effort from Vancouver writer-director Scooter Corkle is earnest and methodical, with a tone-setting murkiness to it.
Corkle has amply demonstrated his strengths as a filmmaker, in crafting a noir-ish tale with a few well-placed twists and in assembling a solid cast bolstered by an engaging lead.
A well-told story, with a strong sense of place.
Hollow in the Land traffics in familiar rural thriller territory. But it features an excellent performance from its lead actress and a strong atmosphere of moody tension courtesy of its writer/director.
It's a rough neck Shakespearean tragedy that makes for a fine showcase for [Dianna] Agron, and proves a sharp directorial debut for filmmaker [Scooter] Corkle.
The movie mirrors Alison's desperation through dimly lit dead-end clues and hectic chase sequences through town.
What could have been a beautiful mess, a work of pure chaos and absurdity in its strange choices that never come together, is instead dull, feeling overlong despite its incredibly reasonable 92 minute runtime.
It's just outlandishly twisty.
You have to be a really talented storyteller to pull this off, and Hollow In The Land suggests that Corkle has a ways to go on that account.
Where Hollow in the Land falters is when it trades emotional depth for commercial action thrills. The film's second half seems to have been invaded by a cop-show parasite.
Corkle captures a welcome intensity to the unfolding drama, and he finds a terrific lead in Dianna Agron.
This gritty low-budget thriller hints at intriguing character-driven issues beneath the surface that are compromised by formulaic plotting.
