Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.30.10] movie news horror thriller 3d

Like a lot of Joe Dante's work, The Hole looks like kiddie horror through and through with just the right touch of terror to make it accessible to older fans of his work. Thoughts will drift to 80s flick The Gate while watching this trailer, but the 3D angle could make it pretty cool. I'm also interested to see Nathan Gamble, a great actor who played the kid in The Mist.

Life couldnt possibly get worse, or so thought 17 year old Dane and his 10 year old brother Lucas, when their single mother Susan 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. 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 houses 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.

No release date seems to be attached to the film yet.
