Check out the Trailer & One-Sheet for Hollow, Coming this September
Have you ever thought to yourself that what the genre needs is more “found footage” flicks? Me neither, but the good folks over at Tribeca Film sees the vacuum these “found footage” films have left and is doing their best to fill the void. Next up is HOLLOW; check out the poster, some “real” newspaper clips (for authenticity), and the trailer below, but first the press release:
Tribeca Film will release Hollow, a British found footage horror film, on September 19th. Directed by Michael Axelgaard, and written and produced by Matthew Holt, Hollow is a chilling tale of four friends on holiday who discover a frightening local legend and find themselves in battle with an ancient evil. The film follows on the heritage of classic British ghost stories and folklore but takes these traditions to a frightening new place utilizing the found footage style.
Hollow will be released On Demand, where it will be available in 40+ million homes through a variety of video-on-demand offerings, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, Xbox, and Samsung Media Hub.
Hollow terrified audiences when it premiered at Fantasia Festival in 2011. The film also screened at the Raindance Film Festival in 2011 and was nominated for British Independent Film Award.
Now check out the plot crunch:
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.
Sounds interesting. I hope the filmmakers here do something a little different with the standard formula we’ve all become accustomed too. Check out the trailer and be sure to click on the newspaper clippings to enlarge the pics:
