Review: The Hallow  (2015)  

This week’s main review is geared for fans of creature feature films. The Hallow introduces a collection of horrifying beasts that live hidden deep in the Irish woods who only come out when their land is trespassed upon. If they do happen to venture out from the confines of their wooded canopies, beware! They mean you all kinds of harm. The Grue-crew recap and review this intriguing and unique horror feature.
