Editorial Reviews

: From visionary director Joe Dante comes a suspense thriller that explores the fears and secrets buried deep in the human mind. Life couldn't possibly get worse, or so thought 17 year old Dane (Chris Massoglia) and his 10 year old brother Lucas (Nathan Gamble), when their single mother Susan (Teri Polo) uproots them from New York City to the sleepy little town of Bensonville. 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 residence. With Dane paying more attention to Julie, he has far less time and patience for his little brother. But then everything changes when they find a sinister bottomless hole under a locked trap door in the basement. 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 their darkest fears to put an end to THE HOLE.

First off I must say that I loved this movie. I am a big fan of Joe Dante's work and it was great seeing him back behind the camera where he belongs. This is a great film for the family who likes to watch scary movies together. All of the young actors did a great job in their roles. I was so happy to see Dick Miller's cameo. It's not a Joe Dante movie with out Mr. Miller! My only problem with this blu ray is that they have decided not to release it in it's original 3D version. I have the blu ray from England and I have to say that the 3D is really used well in this film. Joe Dante has a great eye for visuals and seeing it in 3D the way he intended makes them all the better. Still, even in 2D this is a great movie and I recommend picking it up. If you can get a hold of the 3D version and have the equipment to view it it's worth looking for.

NICE to see Dante back in the groove again, this picture deserves a much wider audience. It's simply a rock solid preteen scare flick with great humor, design, and efficiency. Would have loved to see it in 3D, but even flat it is a terrific treat. If you like Saw, avoid. If you like Explorers, come on in.

Joe Dante has always had a touch with horror, making it funny as well as scary, and he has always had a way with young people in his movies as well, treating them as adults instead of idiots. Both of the director's skills are on ample display in a horror movie that is aimed at the 8 to 16 year old set. The movie itself remains intelligent and even challenging while being age appropriate. That, my friends, is a rarity today.

'The Hole' is as much about a dysfunctional family struggling through hard times and facing new challenges as it is about horror. Gore hounds will be disappointed with the plot, but there is plenty of creepiness, suspense, and shocks to satisfy all but the most jaded. Special notice must be given to Bruce Dern's cameo in the movie, which absolutely warmed my heart.

So if you are in the market for a decent scary movie that isn't rated R, 'The Hole' is perfect. The acting, especially by the three young leads, is excellent, and the plot builds up a credible threatening situation with an extremely satisfying conclusion that may actually teach a lesson. Talk about a throwback to a different era!

It's like a much improved upon 80's/90's thriller. I was surprised its rated PG-13 since it is a lot scarier then today's r rated thriller/horrors. Instead of focusing on random nude scenes that distract from how terrible the movie is, like most of today's horror films, they decided to focus on the actual story. I really enjoyed it.

I grabbed this film to watch because of Joe Dante's past directions (which I've enjoyed his "Gremlins," "Explorers," "Innerspace," and "The 'Burbs"). I used to watch most of the horror movies in the 80s and "The Hole" is very cliché and an old-school scare for today's standard.

"The Hole" is a story about a single mother with her two sons moving into a new house, and the older son meets a next-door girl. All three have discovered a closed hole in the basement to which they have naïvely opened. Nothing was seen and a "bottomless" pit is all that they could discover. Then, soon and slowly, things started to happen to each of the trio.

From a psychological perspective, I thought this film is pretty good with an idea of opening a "hole" (or a door), one must face their worst fears and victories would be achieved when their fears are defeated. If not, death would ensure their fate.

Personally, it's a pretty good story yet cliché. I would think that Teri Polo would have a better developed role than a naïve mother.

I have been wanting to see this movie for the longest time. It's a shame that it sat on the shelf for as long as it did before finally getting a release. Hopefully, we will never have to wait too long for Joe Dante to give us another film.

"The Hole" is about a family who move into a new house in a nice suburban neighborhood. Single mother and two sons. As the kids adjust to their new surroundings, and oldest brother Dane keeps his eye on the cute girl next door, they discover a weird hole that seemingly goes nowhere in their basement. As soon as they open it, weird things begin to happen. The hole reads them and soon these three's deepest fears begin to come to life and they must figure out a way to stop it once and for all.

It's been way too long since Joe Dante has blessed us with a movie. While "The Hole" may not win any major awards, it is a thoroughly entertaining and interesting film that finds Dante in familiar territory. In the 80s, Dante and other filmmakers were terrific at bringing scares and spooks to family friendly kid entertainment that everyone of all ages could enjoy. That's what we get here. "The Hole" is old school scares wrapped up in a new movie. It may not be crazily original, but it works, and with Dante's knowing eye behind the camera, you can't take your eyes off it. It's mostly a light affair, but it does have some striking images and scenes peppered thoughtout, but it does take somewhat of a dark turn towards the end when Dane's fear is realized. The cast is adequate, if nothing spectacular. Dante regulars Dick Miller (in a no dialogue cameo) and Bruce Dern also appear. What, no Robert Picardo? Teri Polo, as the mother, is mostly wasted in the typical working mom role who doesn't know what's going on.
