The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow

I found a link to an interesting short film entitled, “The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow”. The film centers around a photograph taken circa 1930s featuring a young couple and infant child surrounded by, what appears to be, their two friends.  However, things are not quite as they appear. Newspaper clippings tell of children being abucted for pagan rituals and a closer examination of the photograph, in which the viewer is the person looking at the picture, tells of hidden dangers and secrets awaiting our young couple.

The film was written and directed by Rodrigo Gudino and stars, in image  only, Julian Richings, Alan Aderton and Lea Lawrynowicz. The film was a 2008 Genie nominee for best animated short film.

The film has some really great creepy imagery and expertly tells the story of what happens without uttering a single word.  “The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow” is definitely a short film worth viewing.
