The first official teaser trailer for Dark Hollow was released last weekend. Here’s a sample of what critics are saying so far.
Dreadful Tales: “And now, with the help of Paul Campion, Keene’s vision is coming to the big screen… Shane Rangi (Spartacus, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia) is attached to play Hylinus, with Weta Workshop attached for special makeup effects. Seriously? HOW MUCH BETTER CAN THIS GET???… Keene is running, yet again, to film fans everywhere, but this time with a couple of howitzers under each arm, screaming war cries aplenty. This is going to be a bloodbath people. I expect awards here. I DEMAND awards, ’cause this is going to be a killer piece of horror film history…”
The Hollywood News: “Short but striking… The trailer is very simple, but the final reveal is one that is intriguing but not overblown.”
Twitch: “New Zealand director Paul Campion won himself a lot of fans around the world a few years back with his absolutely fabulous short film Eel Girl, success he built into his debut feature The Devil’s Rock. And now Campion is working towards his sophomore effort, an adaptation of Brian Keene’s novel Dark Hollow.”
