Hollowhood is the first independent feature film from entertainment business Siren Stories. It was written and directed by JJ Barnes and Jonathan McKinney, and was filmed in and around the town of Stafford.

Hollowhood stars Kate Marris, Vicky Burke and Leo Parkes in the lead roles as Olivia Harkness, Penelope Jones, and Andy Harkness.

Olivia and her ex-girlfriend Penny are reuniting for their friend Natasha’s Halloween weekend away in Hollowhood. At first Olivia dreams of reigniting the love she and Penny shared, but the creepy locals, the peculiar priest, and a man whose wife went missing five years ago change those plans. Soon Olivia isn’t focussed on whether she and Penny can fall back in love, she’s focussed on whether she and Penny can survive.
