TRẦN Hàm's horror Hollow Đoạt Hồn (2014) secured 160,000 admissions in its first four days in Vietnam, representing approximately VND12 billion (US$566,000) from 1,140 screenings nationwide.

The film — released with an NC-16 rating on 18 Jul 2014 — is about a child who is seemingly possessed when she is returned to her family, after she nearly drowns in a river by a remote village.

Hollow was first-placed in Vietnam over the weekend, ahead of new releases A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) and Planes 2: Fire & Rescue (2014), and the still-on-release Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014).

Trần's previous film as a director, romantic comedy How To Fight in Six Inch Heels Âm mưu giầy gót nhọn (2013), made VND7.5 billion (US$354,000) in its first four days on release in Oct 2013.

Vietnam's highest grossing film is Victor VŨ's Vengeful Heart Quả tim máu (2014), also in the horror genre, which made approximately VND91 billion (US$4.3m) on release in Feb 2014.

Hollow is financed, distributed and represented internationally by BHD Co Ltd.
