The Hole

What is with a movie named THE HOLE?

After moving into a new town, brothers Dane and Lucas and their neighbor Julie discover a bottomless hole in their basement that brings their nightmares to life. With shadows lurking around every corner, they must face their darkest fears in order to put an end to the mystery of the hole.

Haley Bennett with Chris Massoglia trying to figure out whats in the hole in the basement. Now in 3D. source

This movie came out in 2009 and was released just about everywhere but the states. Now its getting its US release on September 28. Many will tell you, "Don't bother." It seems to be a family fright kind of movie, but clown puppets are involved. So beware.

Keira Knightley & Thora Birch in The Hole, 2001
This movie was based on Guy Burt's novel about four teenagers at a British private school secretly uncover and explore the depths of a sealed underground hole created decades ago as a possible bomb shelter. This too, was a slow go of a film to get interested in. Still many readers do find the novel intriguing.

At the time the film was made Thora Birch was the star of the show. Here with Desmond Harrington.

I was so in hope this was a new movie for Chris. I hope he makes new movies soon.

To be honest, the novel sounds more my kind of thing than the movie. Although I have heard it is one of those films that is better than you expect...maybe I should give it a go :)
