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.
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.
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.
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.
