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

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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 ..."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Eschewing the cheap shocks so many horrors use, Axelgaard sustains the tension and dread until the end."
‑ James Mottram, The List
"Camcorded, Suffolk-set drivel about four friends drawn to a haunted tree."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Proceedings switch from quietly creepy to loudly exasperating as relationship woes replace scares, the early promise proving a largely empty threat."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"suffers from being in an overcrowded market of low-budget shakicam features, and does not offer quite enough in the way of new ideas, so that, unlike the ancient tree at its centre, the film never really manages to stand out or overshadow its competition."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"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."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"The film's a goner but hopefully the four talented actors at its centre will make it out alive."
‑ , This is London
"Generates a suitably creepy atmosphere and pulls off a couple of decent scary moments, but the found-footage conceit wears very thin and the plot never really comes together."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"A so-so spookfest that offers few surprises."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"Like found footage horror movies? You'll change your mind after enduring the British import Hollow"
‑ Christian Toto, Big Hollywood
"Nothing to see here."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Although the plot gets a bit draggy, it holds our interest due to the interaction between the characters."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Solid, largely naturalistic performances and a nice technical package offset, if only for hardcore genre enthusiasts, a story whose bump-in-the-night eeriness reaches a level of diminishing return long before its end."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
