Hollows Grove (2014) IMDB

Synopsis:

[From IMDB:] A young filmmaker documents his ghost-hunting, reality show friends as their routine investigation of an abandoned orphanage turns into a nightmare from which they can’t escape.

My take:

Dear Mr Lance Henriksen,

You’re one of the most well-known and respected actors in the horror/sci-fi genres. You have the kind of filmography that most actors would kill to have, and I suspect you don’t have any trouble finding work if you need it.

So, I have to ask: why? Why did you lend the credence of your name and reputation to Hollows Grove? Why did you literally shake your tightly clenched buttocks for this oh-so-obnoxious 120 minutes of trite, formulaic script writing, delivered by a cast who looked like they were just itching to collect their pay cheques and go home to drink away their shame?

Were they holding you against your will? Was someone blackmailing you? Have the royalties from Aliens and all those other things you’ve been in that aren’t terrible dried up, somehow? You can tell us. We’re here for you.

How about this? For both our sakes, I’m just going to pretend that I never saw this movie.

You’re welcome.

Dear Mr Sunkrish Bala,

You were both the most annoying thing about this movie, and the most attractive cast member. I can’t decide whether to hate you, or –

fine. You win this time. Just be better in the future, okay?
