Plot Summary:

Joe Dante returns to deliver his usual mayhem in glorious 3D! When two brothers move into a new house with their single mom, they quickly discover a strange bottomless hole in their basement. Before long, all hell breaks loose when mysterious apparitions begin to emerge and terrorize them.

The Hole is a fun throwback to 80ís kid-friendly horror films like The Gate, The Monster Squad, and Danteís earlier films, which managed to throw some bite behind its PG-rated scares. Itís a fun ninety-minute ride with some great moments (if the Poltergeist clown creeped you out, get ready!), but frankly, I expected something a little more wild and crazy from Dante after all these years Ė particularly during the climax. Not quite the return to form we wanted from one of our favorite madmen, but itíll do.

The Hole Opens Late Summer/Fall?

In an interview with Fangoria Dante laid the following on anxious fans, "We're targeting the end of summer/early fall for a release date and are in discussions with several distributors." From what we hear out of Toronto where the movie played, it absolutely slays so please somebody get this into theatres!

The film, directed by Dante in 3D and starring Teri Polo, Haley Bennett, Bruce Dern, Chris Massoglia, and Nathan Gamble, tells the tale of a pair of brothers who stumble upon a mysterious hole in their basement that leads to the darkest corridors of their fears and nightmares.
