Joe Dante’s The Hole Finally Surfacing on American DVD and Blu-ray
How long have we been waiting for Joe Dante’s The Hole to finally see the light of day here in the US? Since 2009? The wait comes to an end on September 25th when the fright flick escapes the hole it’s been stuck in for the last three years.
VideoETA.com has Dante’s PG-13 horror movie about kids discovering a mysterious sealed hole in the basement of their new house slated to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray on September 25th. The movie has been on DVD in other countries for quite some time now. To say this release has been a long time coming would be an understatement
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 with their darkest fears to put an end to THE HOLE.
