The Hallow is a pretty solid body horror/monster flick. I think movies like this are kind of destined to fail to some degree after a certain point and while I still enjoyed this one, it was a bit too long. The tension remains steady though so a lot of my own personal complaints are somewhat unfounded.
The effects were definitely great and I enjoyed them even after I stopped enjoying the movie itself. I think like most people said, they just went a bit too far with it. It’s not that the actual content itself went too crazy or out of reach for my enjoyment, I just enjoyed the original premise more. It starts in this really creepy, parasitic way which is just what I tend to enjoy most.
All-in-all, The Hallow is really solid. All the performances are great, the effects are great and it’s set in a beautiful (albeit perfectly creepy as well). Definitely check this one out, I’m not sure if it’s still on Netflix but yeah, okay.
