From writer-director Miles Doleac and Academy Award Winning Producer Lisa Bruce (The Theory of Everything) The Hollow – in theaters October 7 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
Summary: James Callis (Bridget Jones’s Baby) stars in the suspense thriller of the year, a stylish and gripping hybrid of Blood Simple and Twin Peaks that’ll have audiences on the edge of their seat.
When a U.S. congressman’s daughter passing through a small town in Mississippi dies in a mysterious triple homicide, a team of F.B.I. agents descends to investigate, the team’s brilliant but jaded lead agent battling demons both past and present, as his beautiful, tough-as-nails partner tries to hold him and the case together.

Comments: We get a look at a small town and the corrupt police that work there. It looks like a quite place. Except for all the sex and drugs.
Than a couple are traveling through town. They do not make it. A Congress Man’s daughter is killed. The FBI are called in.
The people in general have a laid back attitude to their acting. They do not seem to be putting forth their best effort.
The movie moves along with not a lot happening. The FBI is investigating just without much effort and the deputy Ray is covering his butt. Some of the characters do come across as likable.
Ray is the best actor/character in this movie by far. He is multi layered being a deputy, a loving dad, a drug dealer, a caring husband who was a cheater as well.
The movie flows along smoothly but slowly.
The one FBI agent just seems to be descending down and getting worse and worse as he can not control himself. He is a total mess.
The three people that were murdered it seems as if they have just been forgotten about. The movie focuses if you can call it that on the personal problems of so many people.
When they reveal who the killer was it is anti-climatic. No build up, nothing to it. The ending has nothing to do with it, its about the personal lives of the two FBI agents.
