The Dark Faeries, also known as the Hallow and the Changelings, are the main antagonists of the 2015 British-Irish fantasy-horror film The Hallow.
A British family moving to a remote Irish forest village must contend with a group of "fairies, banshees and baby stealers" that live in the woods. In reality, they are humans infected with a strange, possibly supernatural form of fungus.
Dark Faeries are animalistic humanoids with grayish, decrepit skin, large foreheads, small eyes, and small pointed teeth. Their bodies are covered with a disgusting fungus that forms large masses and vines.
Powers and Abilities
The Dark Faeries possess the following powers and abilities:
- Transformation of humans into Dark Faeries
- Inducing decay in structures
Most of the creatures survive the events of the film, and the movie ends with the implication that the fungus will spread to more civilized areas.
- It premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival on January 25, 2015.
