The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hollow (2012)

Starring: Emily Plumtree, Matt Stokoe, Sam Stockman, Jessica Ellerby
Director: Michael Axelgaard

Two couples head to a remote village to explore a myth surrounding a twisted tree and the spirit inhabiting it which makes young couples commit suicide.

My Take:
The movie goes down the same roads as The Blair Witch with first person, camcorder shots and not revealing the evilness until right at the end (and even then it's a little murky). It does a good job of creating tension between the characters and the environment. While there is definitely a few scares, it seems I've similar scenes too often before.

Rating: In the middle
