'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!
"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.
