A selection of concept art for the upcoming feature film adaptation of horror writer Brian Keene’s novel Dark Hollow has been posted on Brian’s website:
“After two miscarriages, writer Adam Shay’s marriage is on the rocks.Â On a walk through local woods rumored to be haunted, Adam come across a strange sight: a statue of a half-man, half-goat creature, a satyr from ancient legends, that comes to life before his eyes. Soon, all the women in town begin disappearing, summoned to the woods by the satyr’s hypnotic piping. When Adam gathers the menfolk to hunt down the satyr and save the women, what they uncover is an unholy evil bent on protecting itself and spreading its seed…”
