Format: VHS Tape
The plot of the movie is relatively straight-forward. Four teenagers hide away in an old war bunker, and get trapped inside. They have limited food, hardly any water, no working toilet facilities, and no known way of getting out. To make matters worse, the only person who knows that they're there (Martin- played superbly by Daniel Brocklebank), hasn't come back for them, and they have no way of finding out why.
The days go by, and the tension begins to mount. And the paranoia begins to set in.
Sadly, to say any more would be spoiling the twists and turns of this great film. Suffice to say that it does indeed twist superbly, and is more of a chiller than a slash'n'gore style killer-on-the-rampage thriller.
The casting is superb. Every actor/actress suits his/her part exactly. The suspense is also particularly good at many points.
On the whole, if you're looking for a chilling look into the human psyche, this is a great film. If you're more into masked-killer-goes-out-and-kills-fifteen-American-teenagers movies, then this probably won't be much to your liking.

People only seem to read reviews with a few lines, so I'll keep it short. "The Hole" starts in a rather mediocre fashion, though with plenty of intrigue; not all the acting is superb, despite a reasonably well-written script, but the leading lady manages to hold it together almost perfectly. It gets better as it goes on. There are two key things in this film in my opinion, perhaps three if you include the fact that it's an English film and good; 1) the disturbing, edgy atmosphere which pervades it (on occasion, this is done incredibly well) and 2) the ending - if you're into your Usual Suspects, you'll know what kind of gut-wrenching feeling of bewilderment and shock I'm chattin' about. Doesn't quite deserve 5 stars, but then the four awarded are coming from someone who wasn't that impressed by the Blair Witch and the like. Basically, it's quality.

I love this film- everything is so well done. I cant understand people who just complain that its not good- if you want to see a typical american slasher film, then Buy Scream or something!
This is a strong compulsive British thriller, and its amazing.
The story is told through the character of 'Liz's eyes, when she is found bruised and brutalised within inches of death in her private school, and liz is telling the police what happened:
You know they storyline by now, 3 Friends (the 'cool kids') Mike (Desmond Harrington, Wrong Turn) Frankie (Keria Kinghtley, Pirates of the caribbean, Love Actually) and Geoff (Lawrence Fox) dont want to go on a school trip to wales, so they pay the school nerd (Martin, Daniel Broklebank) to hide them away and make it look as though theyve gone- hence, an old war bunker- his condition: That socially outcast Liz (Thora Birch, American Beauty) joins them down there- Martin knows that Liz has always fancied Mike, but he himself (Martin) has fancied Liz since they were just 11.
After three days, Martin didnt return to let them out so the police find him and question him - but when this happens he tell a very different seeries of events to the ones Liz told
As you can guess, there are some really gruesome parts to it- the most jumpy being when Liz finds Frankies body in the toilets... and some of the deaths are exceptionally nasty.
Having said all that, there are some amusing parts to it aswell...

First off, I'm a film student, so I could talk about this forever. For your sanity howwever, I'll keep it relatively short.
My experience of this film is that you either think it's the greatest thing ever made or conversly, why was it ever made. As you may guess I sit firmly on the side of the former statement.
I had gone along expecting some Blair Witch rip-off... The Hole is not another teen slasher, it has far much more intelligence, to call it one would do the director, cast and crew a dis-service.
Performances on the whole are top notch. irch resists the temptation to go off the deep end, it is this that makes her portrayal all the more dark.
Also one to note is the perforamnce of relative newcomer Keira Knightley. Air-headed socialite, easy to play right? Wrong. For all of Frankie's designer girl bravado, there is in equal measure a sense of vulnerability to her, which Knightley pulls off excellently.
Now for the boys. Laurence Fox (Geoff) has the greatest obsticle to over come. On paper, his character is intensly dislikable, yet on screen, Fox is somehow able to make you like him. Particularly in the latter scenes with Knightley.
Desmond Harrington plays the iconic all americian boy to perfection. The most wonderful thing to see is how much he is affected by evens inside The Hole.
This film could be called anything, 'The Cupboard' whatever, place doesn't matter, its what happens inside that counts.
OK, so there are place with cluky bits of dialogue where inexperience shows a little, but the greatest thing about thids film is a great ense of rawness, an 'underground quality'(no pun intended!) making a refreshing change from the run-of-the-mill hollywood teen horror movies.
To sum up then. This film is a neatly observed look at the horror of people, yes people not a big scary monster. This makes it all the more haunting. If you want to see something very special indeed, buy this.
