I will say, it wasn't boring.

This is a really good movie, better than some recent horror movies that have made it to theater.

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 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!!!

The Hollow, which is loosely based on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a nice addition to the growing number of small budget, strait to DVD horror movies out there. With a nicely assembled cast, passable special effects, and a well paced plot, this movie stands heads (hahah) over the competition in this horror genre.

When Ian Cranson moves to Sleepy Hollow, he has no idea that he is the last descendent of Ichabod Crane, and he thinks that when he begins getting warnings from the town crazy, that he'll just shrug them off, but soon he and the town can't deny that some legends are real, and some horror won't rest.

This is a really good movie, better than some recent horror movies that have made it to theater. It isn't scary, really, or overly horrifying, but its light and quick and leaves you feeling like you wouldn't mind watching it again.

So if you're looking for a good, quick horror movie to fill your time, don't pass this up just because there's a Backstreet Boy in it (Nick Carter). It's really good!

Recommended.

Once again we have a movie filmed in California that tries to pass it self off as taking place in rural upstate New York. Like all such movies it fails in that respect. Having said that though, it's not the most egregious failing in this flick.......

Trying to pass Nick Carter off as a high school quarterback is the biggest laugh you'll have in this movie, along with the dorky guy who was Eddie Murphy's partner, "Billy" in Beverly Hill's Cop a vey close second, who plays but fails as the tough as nail's high school football coach. No wonder Nick Carter is the quarterback!!!!!

Anyway, Stacy Keach is in it and makes a fair attempt at doing his job and I bet he really needs the paycheck these days too.

There really is not much in the way of gore compared to Friday the 13th or Halloween and the nudity is sadly lacking, but I really thought all in all it wasn't a bad flick for the money. I have a feeling in 10 or 15 years time, people will be laughing and enjoying the campiness of The Hollow, the same way people of my age group laughed at some of the lesser quality slasher movies of the 80's.

Clutching desperately at the coattails of Washington Irving's classic tale, "The Hollow" is a modest horror flick that will keep you entertained, either with humor (intentional and unintentional) or a few decent scares. I originally saw this flick on ABC Family about three years ago. It has recently popped up on Sci-Fi channel. It's a lot better than seventy-five percent of Sci-Fi channel's flicks, but does fit comfortably in that channel's Saturday movie lineup. It's cast has a little something for everybody. There's new stars for the younger crowd (Kevin Zegers, Kaley Cuoco), former 80's teen stars (Judge Reinhold), an old guy (Stacey Keach) and a former boy band superstar (Nick Carter).

The story is centered around the return of Ichabod Crane's bloodline (Zegers) to the village of Sleepy Hollow. When Halloween comes along, Zegers moves in on the high school football jock's girlfriend (Cuoco) and quickly makes an enemy out of said jock (Carter). Teenagers go missing, and despite warnings from the cemetary keeper (Keach), the village goes on with it's Halloween Hayride, giving a returning Headless Horseman easy pickings. Keach tries to convince Zegers that he's a descendant of Crane and that the Horseman has returned to finish a job he started many years ago. Initially Zegers denies the possibility of being related to Crane. As the story goes on, however, he begins to realize that he is Crane's descendant and only he can stop the Horseman from going on another killing spree. Heads roll, there are plenty of near-misses, and Carter, Keach and Reinhold really chew up the scenery for the rest of the movie.

When all is said and done, the viewer won't feel entirely cheated by this film.
