I’ve been following A24’s upcoming film The Hole in the Ground for a few reasons. First, I’m a huge fan of the studio’s catalog (which includes Hereditary, The Witch, and It Comes at Night among many others). Also, the trailers look scary as hell! Today brings a new clip, one that features a very creepy old lady. Give it a spin at the top of the article, followed by the synopsis and latest trailer below.
Sarah and her young son Chris move to a new home in the Irish countryside, next to a forest that hides an enormous sinkhole. One night, Chris vanishes, and when he reappears he seems unharmed and unchanged. But, as his behavior grows increasingly disturbing, Sarah begins to fear that the boy who has returned may not be her son at all.
The Hole in the Ground is directed by Lee Cronin from a script he co-wrote with Stephen Shields; the film stars Seána Kerslake, James Quinn Markey, and Simone Kirby. DIRECTV subscribers will get access to The Hole in the Ground on January 31st; the rest of us can see it when it arrives in limited theaters and select VOD platforms on March 1st.
