From vionary director Joe Dante comes a suspense thriller that explores the fears and secrets buried deep in the human mind.

For Dane the only exciting thing about their new town is the beautiful girl next door, Julie (Haley Bennett). With Susan spending more and more time at work, Dane and Lucas are left unattended to explore the depths of their eerie new redence. With Dane paying more attention to Julie, he has far less time and patience for his little brother.

As the brothers experiment with the hole, they realize that the cold pit goes on forever. They drop a nail and never hear it hit bottom. They lower a flashlight and a video camera, and they get consumed by the darkness. Hoping for some answers about the house's past, Dane and Lucas bring Julie in on their new discovery. When the hole is exposed, evil is unleashed. With strange shadows lurking around every corner and past nightmares coming to life, the trio will have to come face-to-face with their darkest fears to put an end to THE HOLE.

Have I stept into a time warp I swear this came out a couple of years ago, or was that a different film called the hole with the same premise????? Which I remember being very good, it reminded me alot of The Gate.

I watched The Hole at the weekend after seeing this article, For any body that hasn't seen it if you like The Gate this is milar but alot better, A really good kids Horror film that in my opinion is a lot creepier than most adult horror films of recent years, It's not a clasc but well worth a look. 7/10
