Reviews

Joe Dante directs this suspense horror/thriller. When 17-year-old Dane (Chris Massoglia) and his younger brother Lucas (Nathan Gamble) move with their mother Susan (Teri Polo) from New York City to the sleepy little town of Bensonville, they stumble across a mysterious hole under a locked trapdoor in the basement while exploring their new house. Before they know it, the brothers are caught up in a terrifying odyssey into the dark labyrinths of their worst fears and most sinister nightmares.

Let's get this out of the way first: as far as characters go, this is every film aimed at young teens or children you've ever seen. Big brother is devoted to little brother but spends most of the film pretending he hates him. Little brother is a touch weird and gets into lots of mischief. Headstrong girl next door that big brother fancies decides to get involved in their capers. Mom is too busy to notice anything going on.
Got that? OK. So far so standard.
The amusing hook of this film is that the new home they've just moved into has a hatch in the floor that may or may not be a gateway to hell, and once opened, weird and creepy things start happening.
These aren't too creepy or gruesome - after all, this is a family movie - but any kids with a clown phobia will have an amusing time, and there are some smart shocks with traps, creepy near escapes, and some funny gags where the kids have to try to explain why they're acting strangely to Mom.
Like Gremlins in style and pacing due to the same director Joe Dante's talented hand, this isn;t quite as much of a classic but does have a lot of fun performances and many entertaining set pieces. And if it does feel a bit patronising with its cod-psychology here and there, the inventive design, caper-film feel and exciting ending still make it one that's worth watching. Fun and nostalgic.

I took my eight year old son and 12 year old niece to see this film at the cinema. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it however it was Halloween and I thought I would give them both a treat.
As The Hole is marketed at a younger audience, I thought it may come across as silly and perhaps a little patronising. Thankfully the writer and director have credited their audience with having a brain and have created a film that is intelligent, well written, atmospheric, suspenseful and more than a little bit creepy.
The special effects were impressive, the actors believable and the `scares' well conceived. I was pleasantly surprised or should that be un-pleasantly surprised given what this film's about. It even made me jump once or twice and, as anyone who knows me can confirm, that doesn't happen often.
Whether or not this film should be a 12A I couldn't say. Strangely enough, my son (eight) loved the film and didn't find it scary whereas my niece (12) was scared out of her wits and remained so long after the film ended. I suppose it depends on the individual. Perhaps mum or dad could watch it first and decide whether it's the stuff of nightmares.
This mum's view - Thoroughly entertaining and well worth a watch.

I only bought this because it was in 3D and I've just bought 3D tv, I didn't really expect too much.
It's a classic storyline to begin, they move into a new house, find something in the celler etc........its rated 12, so not that scary, seen it all before..... Wrong.
The little girl, the clown, the policeman. The way they slither into the box, the dad, this was a really good film, good story line, fantastic 3D experience. If i hadn't know it was a 12, i'd have thought it was a 15 or 18 classification.
You'll find yourself shouting, omg don't go into the cellar, pool, bedroom and wanting to look away, but not being able to tear your eyes away.
Fantastic film, definitely worth buying. This is a definate 5 star movie.

You may be a bit confused over which review to believe. But for all of those who still have faith in the world I advise you to completely ignore the previous reviewers comment and listen to this (my Blu-ray.com review)

'The Hole' is actually a pretty decent film. I wasn't expecting much from it, but boy did it deliver. Going into this expecting another run-of-the-mill kids film I discovered that it was much more than that, much more of a dark, disjointed, psychological thriller, with some disturbing images such as a little dead girl crying tears of bloody and crawling down a hole akin to something from 'The Grudge' or a policeman lacking the back of his head.

The picture quality, especially the 3D, holds up well, and the color palette is very vibrant, even whilst viewing in 3D mode. Watching the movie in 3D is a whole new level of entertainment, and it is one of the best discs out there for lack of crosstalk (which is only a slight problem in about one or two shots of the whole film - if that) So I would definitely recommend that if you are looking for another 3D movie that was natively shot in 3D, has a great depth to it (that completely adds to the films immersive experience) and practically no crosstalk then go for this, you will not be disappointed.

Overall not only was this a great film, but this is a great disc, the extras may be lacking and feel a bit too much like promotional material but the 3D on the disc is vastly superior to a lot of other discs out at the moment, and is definitely demo-disc material worthy. I would probably place this 3D disc just behind Avatar in terms of depth and quality, but way above lacklusture 3D titles such as Piranha or Clash of the Titans.

So, anyone who shares my opinion please take the time to review this and get it up to the (at least) 4 stars it deserves.
