This is a good fun movie that is well put together.
Joe Norris
I think the problem with this movie is that it doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up.
Ghoulie Guru
This is a very good movie, and great to watch on Halloween night.

Ppl are reviewing this movie as if it were a major motion picture. This was intended and is just a campy little film. Yes the acting is bad and the story silly but so what it's fun. All of the acting is really bad including the vetern actors such as Stacy Keach, Judge Reinhold, Eileen Brennan and Joe Mazzello. I think the over acting and campy acting was intentional making it quite the fun little movie. Nick Carter didn't do bad at all considering this was his first movie actually he did about as good as the other young actors in the movie. Keep your perspective about you and realize you are watching a silly little movie grab some popcorn and enjoy it.

Unabashedly silly and obviously aimed at a young audience, THE HOLLOW is a pleasantly diverting ghost story. Kevin Zegers (AFRAID OF THE DARK) stars as Ian Cranston, who is unknowingly a descendant of Ichabod Crane, who according to this story was real and not just a character in Washington Irvings' classic tale. Crusty old gravekeeper Stacy Keach (hamming it up delightfully) enlists Ian's aid in making sure that the Headless Horseman is returned to his grave forever. The movie borrows cliches from countless other treatments of this classic ghost story and while it doesn't come close to Johnny Depp's SLEEPY HOLLOW, it's a harmless entertainment. Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys has a role as the school jock and the fake Headless Horseman; Eileen Brennan turns up in a small role as an eccentric old lady; and Judge Reinhold is pretty bad in his role as Ian's sportsminded dad. But it wouldn't be a bad addition to your Halloween night viewing.

I am a horror buff, write horror novels and moderate a horror website and have to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

I read the bad reviews on here but happened to catch The Hollow on one of the cable movie channels and watched it. The movie was a tad scary but mostly it was just a fun, enjoyable movie to watch. As a matter of fact I was going to buy it to add to my DVD collection when I saw that it was already available for watching on Prime.

The critics of the film apparently are expecting their films to all be instant classics or Oscar worth films but some of the best horror films aren't. This one is an obvious continuation of the Sleep Hollow tale and reminded me a little of Ginger Snaps in its appearance, although admittedly Ginger Snaps was better.

Watch the movie and enjoy it for what it is, a fun, slightly gory Halloween tale.

In truth, I really didn't expect much from this modern tale derived from the legend of Ichabod Crane and Sleepy Hollow. But I like Kevin Zegers (and his thick mane of hair) and Kaley Cuoco (who has been in more than her share of less than stellar productions), so I thought I'd check out "The Hollow." There are certainly worse films on the market, but everything about "The Hollow" was so expected and so so uninspired. Were it not for Zegers' appeal and a very broad performance by Stacy Keach, I might even have tuned out of the movie. The gore factor is practically nil, the scare quotient is very low, and the plotting and resolution is standard at best. Lacking real fright--I'd hoped for some cheesy fun, bad movie mayhem, or any kind of humor to distinguish the story. Alas, it is all so ordinary--not a painful way to spend eighty minutes, but not much to recommend it either.

Unbeknownst to him, Zegers plays a descendent of Ichabod Crane. His family has rather inexplicably and conveniently relocated to the sight of the original story of "Sleepy Hollow," and he has become active in the Halloween festivals centered around the Headless Horseman. Packed with the requisite teenage drama--potential new girlfriend (Cuoco), her bully of a boyfriend (a bloated Nick Carter), a disapproving dad (Judge Reinhold)--Zegers must also contend with a murderous spirit. A delightfully over-the-top Keach plays the grave keeper/mentor/historian who is essential to keeping the rather tenuous plot alive. A couple of beheadings later and the crew is banded together for a final showdown. Again, it's all played rather straightforward and that's to the film's detriment because I really just wanted to laugh along and have a good ride.

I liked this movie for the reason being that it was a different take on the "Sleepy Hollow" story. The story unfolded in a manner that it held your attention all the way through the movie. The acting was very solid in this B flick as well. I would recommend this movie to anyone that loves B-horror flicks!!!

Why Nick Carter got top billing, I don't know. His character is the class bully and he does a good job of it ( never realized he was this big). the actual star of the movie is Kevin Zegers (Mortal Instruments) , he is the descendant of Ichabod Crane and must do battle with the resurrected headless Horseman. this movie is fun but of course has its share of problems. Kaley Cuoco (pre Big Bang Theory) is cute but annoying, "I'm going with you and you can't stop me" then "oh, I can't walk anymore" ???Really? Stacey Keach looks like he is having a blast and Judge Reinhold as the jock football coach dad who disapproves of his son fencing, gggrr another trite character. BUT, overall I had fun and it isn't too scary for some 8 to 9 year olds. BTW, why was Eileen Brennan even in this???
