Good idea but............

I have given 3 stars for the cinematography, I think I would have enjoyed sixty minutes of the beautifully filmed forest and sky. The film is one of many I have watched were there is a promising idea but they do not know what to do with it. Unfortunately the film is clunky and pretty nonsensical, the producer, director have no idea were it is going and fall back on the leave it to the viewers imagination. The reveal is done far to early to build up suspense, it looks like a bloke in a deep sea diving suit, there are big holes in the plot, for example your wife has worn what looks like a horse shoe around her neck for twenty years and you never ask, what the hell is that. I might be doing the lead lady a disservice but she looks well in her 20's and I take it she is portraying a teenager at the start. The dialogue is non existent no one actually says anything apart from the bloke saying at least 12 times "We have to get out of here" if you have to watch it, watch for the first 3 minutes then throw some paint against a wall and watch it for the next hour.

Sinister tragedy

Was drawn into seeing 'The Hollow One' with a cool poster/cover, an slightly intriguing but very derivative premise and as someone with a general appreciation for horror. That it was low-budget, which from frequent personal experience is rarely a good sign due to that there are so many poor ones out there, made me though apprehensive.

'The Hollow One' is sadly however yet another film seen recently, hence some reiteration because the exact same strengths and flaws those films are present here, that to me was incredibly disappointing considering its potential which it doesn't do anywhere near enough with. As a film it's weak, with a plethora of problems (huge ones too) and doesn't do enough with its potential, which was hardly small. There is very little good about it

Lets start with the positives. The scenery is atmospheric and spooky.

Although most of it looks schlocky, some of the shots look decent. The start intrigues somewhat, shame the rest of the film completely goes downhill and never recovers.

Unfortunately, the story does feel paper thin, disjointed and over-stretched and some of it feels vague, under-explained in the last third where the film especially became duller, more predictable, more senseless and less scary. Too many characters are too sketchy and with nowhere near enough to make one want to endear to them. Their annoying and illogical decision making and behaviours frustrates.

Making the film feel bland and forgettable with not enough heart put into it. The effects are ropy at best, the sound quality is obvious and utilised cheaply (being too loud in the build ups and people's reactions) and it's best not mentioning the uniformly lumbering and histrionic acting. The lead actress does try but the severe over-familiarity of how her role was written spoils her efforts.

Dialogue can be stilted and rambling, with lots of clichés and no depth whatsoever, while the pace goes to a standstill very quickly and drags on forever with very little going on worth caring about, never recovering. Found too many the supposedly shocking moments not surprising or scary and the supposedly creepy atmosphere dreary, due to the excessive obviousness, a lot of dumb and vague moments and explanations and the lack of tension and suspense. Would not have minded the lack of originality (the film is extremely derivative and in a dumbed and watered down way) if the story and atmosphere were at least alright in execution, in reality they were both dreadfully done. Not to mention a whole novel's worth of inconsistencies and continuity errors and a structure so aimless and confused it renders some of the film incoherent.

There are a good deal of underdeveloped plot elements and often nonsensical and confusing character motivations, while too many of the things to make you jump or shocked are far from creative or scary and are pretty tame. The ending is not a surprise or interesting with the reveal being revealed far too soon that suspense is completely dissipated.

There is not enough threat here and what there is of it tends to be used poorly, it is completely unimaginative, very repetitive and more odd than creepy, completely failing to show any sense of horror and resorting to cheap typical horror tropes. Some badly sagging momentum too. The direction is leaden, inexperience seems to be all over the film, and the music doesn't really fit. There is no creativity or anything shocking.

In summation, weak. 3/10 Bethany Cox

Don't waste your time on this stinker.

Three collage kids and two farmers playing in a low budget film who is worse than passing a kidney stone. Don't waste time watching this trash. I wonder what the producer and director was doing during the film making, probably sleeping. Incredible that this movie got average rating 5.5 points.
