The Hollow

Synopsis: It's Halloween eve on Shelter Island, and the small town is preparing for a killer storm. But the dark clouds gathering over the island are bringing with them a curse a hundred years in waiting. As the woods give birth to an ungodly and insatiable creature of fire, bones, and earth, three sisters must scramble to stay alive through the long dark night of the Hollow. For it's not something you can kill. It's only something you can try and survive.

flies in, gets injured,

flies around the room

knocks over a lamp. Happens all the time.

- Is that right?

- Yeah.

Mr. Hitchens, this isn't London.

Things here go bump in the night.

Look, we've not been well received here.

- Our neighbor...

- Colm?

- Colm, yes.

- Not without cause.

You're aware?

Everybody is. You're making people

nervous when you're out there.

- It's my job.

- I know, Mr. Hitchens.

- But these people have got certain beliefs.

- Beliefs?

They believe that the forest that you're

trampling on belongs to the Hallow.

- The Hallow?

- The good people.

Fairies, banshees, baby stealers.

You're not afraid with your Irish folklore,

are you, Mr. Hitchens?

A conquered people, forever in hiding

driven from their sacred lands

by man with iron and fire.

Beautifully told.

So you're a believer?

No, not me. I'm from Belfast.

Different sort of boogeyman up there.

But we're dealing with a very

superstitious people around here.

Especially Mr. Donnelly.

You see, his beautiful wee daughter Cora

she wandered into the woods one day.

She never came back.

And he would have you believe

that they took her.

I'm sorry.

Should have just...

gone and talked to Colm.

- Do you really think...

- Or what?

A drunken bird?

Or a...

A Hallow?

He's just trying to scare us, that's all.

You should sleep.

I'll be right back.

- Where are you going?

- Just gonna take some pictures.

For evidence.



Come here, Iggs.

What's wrong, Iggs?

Adam, love.

- It's noon.

- Shit.

Fell asleep.

I'm gonna get the window mended.

And Colm?

Yeah. I'll see him tonight. Promise.

Gotta get out there, here you go.

We had an incident.

Police seem to think a pissed off

bird mistook my house for his.

- You're the tree doctor?
