In Competition: Best British Feature
On holiday in the english countryside, two young couples uncover an ancient evil. Without each other, they will not survive.
A supernatural thriller set deep in the heart of the ominously deserted Suffolk countryside, this new British film arrives fresh from its' recent debut at Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival where it garnered comparisons with the Wicker Man.
Scott and Emma and Lynn and James are two young couples who've driven down to Suffolk to celebrate the formers recent engagement. It soon becomes apparent that despite appearances, these four share a rather murky personal history, with romantic entanglements past and present providing a messy backstory that just won't go away. Coupled with the fact the place they're staying in is creepy as hell and there's a nearby tree that's so ancient it's listed in the Domesday Book and carries a long association with horrific events, makes for a not so comfortable. stay.
As night sets in and the foursome turn to drugs, the tree seems to take on a personality of its' own, seemingly beckoning them closer and with inhibitions out the window - paranoia, sexual jealousy and plain old terror rear their ugly heads.
Shot as found footage but with a cinematic sweep that completely belies the genre, Hollow also boasts a cast of good looking unknown actors who more than convincingly carry the story. Combining elements of character driven drama with tense genre piece, Hollow announces the arrival of a new UK writer/director team worth keeping an eye on.
