The Hole Movie

A family moves from the big city to a smaller town, and the children aren’t happy about it. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

The opening idea of Joe Dante‘s The Hole definitely isn’t an original one, but usually the kids meet pretty girls or teach the community how to dance or something. In Dante’s movie, they find a bottomless pit in their basement that brings their fears to life.

It’s true that the Gremlins director’s film has been without a distributor for a long time even though it received healthy praise when hitting festivals in 2009, but all of that is behind it now that it’s getting a limited release on September 28th. The trailer (which has been around a while as well) boasts a YA adventure with hopefully some trademark Dante bits. Plus, Bruce Dern plays a character named Creepy Carl who looks like Doc Brown’s somehow more hyperactive cousin. Can’t go wrong there.
