Director Corin Hardy’s The Hallow takes place deep within the darkness of a secluded forest land in rural Ireland, where locals believe an ancient evil dwells. Feared by the nearby superstitious villagers as cursed creatures who prey upon the lost, their secrets have been kept from civilization and remain on their hallowed ground. But when a conservationist from London moves in with his wife and infant child in order to survey the land for future construction, his actions unwittingly disturb the horde of demonic forces. Alone in a remote wilderness, he must now ensure his family’s survival from their relentless attacks.
With his feature debut, acclaimed visual stylist Corin Hardy displays an innate talent for the macabre, approaching the medium with a cocksure confidence in his construction of the modern horror fable. Relying upon a precise and layered technical elegance, The Hallow seethes with an uncommonly sophisticated terror that uncoils effortlessly into an atmosphere of disquieting intensity and primal dread.
The Hallow stars Joseph Mawle, Bojana Novakovic, Michael McElhatton and Michael Smiley. It opens in select theaters on November 6th, 2015, but will be available exclusively on DirecTV starting on October 17th. VOD and all other digital platforms premiere on November 5th.
