The Hallow Blu-ray Review

Grab some popcorn, turn off the lights, and be ready to stay in for some scares with The Hallow starting April 5th!

Scream Factory and IFC Films have announced that the 2015 Sundance Film Festival entry The Hallow will have its long awaited released on blu-ray following a strong showing at the festival.  The film, co-written and directed by Corin Hardy, follows a husband, wife, and their infant son after they move to the Irish countryside while the husband, Adam, surveys and studies the nearby woods.  Little do they know the true horrors that follow them both in and outside the forest as they struggle to find the answers necessary to survive before it’s too late.

Agents of Geek also did a review of the blu-ray release of the film via a screener graciously sent to us via Shout! Factory which you can read HERE.

After receiving a minimal theatrical run, The Hallow looks to extend its life and potentially gain a cult following on blu-ray and home release.  Agents of Geek has you covered with the details on the special features and some more information on the supernatural horror flick and what to expect from the film.

In case you missed it in theaters, or want to add it to your collection, here are the details on the Blu-ray release.

THE HALLOW SYNOPSIS

When a London-based conservationist is sent to Ireland with his wife and infant child to survey an area of forest believed to be hallowed ground by superstitious locals, his actions unwittingly disturb a horde of demonic creatures who prey upon the lost. Alone and deep within the darkness of the remote wilderness, he must now fight back to protect his family against the ancient forces’ relentless attacks.
