Indie Trailer Sunday: Teaser for Paul Campion's Horror 'Dark Hollow'
First it was summoned, now it demands to be satisfied. Today trailer is for a new indie horror from the UK called Dark Hollow, the next film from the creator of last year's horror The Devil's Rock. Adapted from author Brian Keene's Dark Hollow, the horror film is about a writer who discovers an "unholy evil dwelling deep in the forest: a satyr - a supernatural half-man, half goat creature, hellbent on protecting itself and spreading it's seed." Director Paul Campion used to work at Weta, and he got them to help work on the creature effects for this film, which there's a very brief hint of in this teaser trailer (via Twitch). Take a look!
Watch the first teaser trailer for Paul Campion's Dark Hollow, originally from Bloody-Disgusting:
Set in a small Central Pennsylvania town that borders a woodland with a sinister reputation, Dark Hollow sees women beginning to disappear. Strange pipe music can be heard drifting in from the woods, which has a strange effect on the libidos of those who hear it. The trees in the woods seem to move with a will of their own. Adam Shay, a mid level mystery writer, and a small group of his neighbours discover the evil behind this and become determined to put a stop to it, leading to a showdown with the force orchestrating the disappearances. Adapted from Brian Keene's novel of the same name by Paul Campion, of The Devil's Rock previously. It doesn't have a release date yet. Follow for more updates on the Facebook page. Anyone?

actually it was adapted from the book of the same title "Dark Hollow". Ghoul is a different book.

Any relation to Jane Campion?

So I'm guessing the Satyr jumped out and lavished the supple girl with wine and flute playing?

And chased nymphs and dryads afterwards.

I was sorta expecting a joke at the end. That can't be a good sign.
