I haven’t been this excited to see a foreign movie about a creepy kid since the trailers for Goodnight Mommy hit the internet back in 2014.
The Hole in the Ground looks like an exceptionally tense and nuanced mix of folk horror and psychological terror. The film made a huge splash at Sundance, where it enjoyed its world premiere earlier this year. Now, we’re getting word that the folks at A24 (the studio that brought us The Witch and Hereditary, among many others) and Lionsgate will release The Hole in the Ground on DVD April 30th!
Check out the synopsis and trailer for The Hole in the Ground 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.
