Because Burton thought it worked better that way. He explained to BuzzFeed: We switched Emma and Olive's afflictions, or whatever you want to call them. But luckily we had Jane, the screenwriter, [and] we ran some [stuff by Ransom Riggs]... you know, the author is still alive! He was a good collaborator. We just sort of felt that having Emma floating ...

Well, since it's a time loop, the hollow was going to appear every day in that same place at that exact time. So, as she already killed the hollow multiple times, she already knew where he would fall. The line was probably drawed the first time the hollowgast was killed, maybe for the children don't go there or step on it, or as @Luciano said: Possibly ...

When Barron turned into a hollow, he had to eat several eyes to get back to looking human. For a wight to look fully human, they must consume as many peculiar eyes as possible. Except, they will always have their distinguishable white eyes. None of Barron's friends had transformed completely. One of them had a rat like appearance, and Barron still had hollow ...

I'd say closed because of the balance and symmetry, and presuming it is a static shot. Depends some on the scene/story and use of the shot in the sequence. But it could also be considered "open" because it shows a somewhat wider angle than a medium shot. per: "Re-examining the Traditional Principles of Cinematography of Modern Movies: A Case Study of ...

Jake saw the hollow stalking up behind his coworker and shouted "Shelley! Behind you!" Shelley fired blindly, in several directions. She was just a normal human being, unable to see the hollow in any direct manner - aiming wherever she saw indications of movement or areas of solid darkness large enough to conceal a human-sized threat. Notice that she ...

Mr.Barron was a Hollow and he needed to eat other peculiar's eyes to get his humanish form back. Maybe he didn't eat enough eyes to transform his teeth, or there were some parts of his body that couldn't be transformed, like his eyes and teeth. Or maybe he liked his teeth that way (It makes him scarier).

On Wikipedia's page for the movie plot it says: Malthus' death erased himself and his murder of Abe from the future. So you can chalk that one off as a bad writing / writers not understanding how time travel works / glossing over these details to make a happy ending. If Abe doesn't get killed, Jake (in that timeline) will not travel to meet Miss ...

There are no official answers by producers if the hollowgasts are based on slenderman or not, but everything indicates that they indeed are. While in the book they resemble humans with tentacles protruding from their mouths, in the film adaptation their design was clearly far more based on Slender Man, as they are portrayed as bald, pale, unrealistically ...
