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