Irish Abroad: The Hallow to play Toronto After Dark Film Festival

The 10th Toronto After Dark Film Festival, which runs October 15th to 23rd will feature Irish co-produced horror film The Hallow, directed by Corin Hardy. Anticipation is high for the film with the opening night screening selling-out and a second screening close to capacity.

The film follows a London-based conservationist who moves to Ireland with his wife and baby, to survey an area of ancient forest believed by the superstitious locals to be hallowed ground. He unwittingly disturbs a horde of terrifying beings and must fight to protect his family.

The film stars Joseph Mawle (Ripper Street), Bojana Novakovic (Edge of Darkness), Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones) and Michael Smiley (The World’s End).

The Hallow was produced by Occupant Entertainment and Fantastic Films. It was funded by Prescience, Altus Media, Hyperion and Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.

The Hallow will be released in Ireland on Friday November 13th. Tickets for the IFI Horrorthon premiere are available to purchase now.
