Corin Hardy’s “The Hallow” made the rounds earlier
this year at the Sundance Film Festival to warm reviews and is set to hit U.S. theaters and VOD this November. In anticipation, distributor IFC Midnight has dropped a new trailer to get viewers ready
for 97 minutes of gruesome creature feature goodness.
“The Hallow” stars Joseph Mawle and Bojana
Novakovic as a young couple who have just moved to a secluded cabin in an Irish
forest, despite locals’ warnings of the dangers hidden in their surroundings. As an unwillingness to heed such admonitions never fares well in horror flicks, the couple is soon faced with a fight for survival
against the ancient evils living in the woods.
The trailer easily establishes the film’s eerie, isolated atmosphere and quickly takes off in providing quick glimpses of the horrors that our unlucky protagonists are forced to suffer, making for an insidious monster
movie that fans of “The Conjuring” and “It Follows” are
likely to enjoy.
“The Hallow” premieres in theaters and VOD on
November 6. Take a look at the trailer above.
