Yawn. - The Hole in the Ground review by IW

Spoiler Alert
15/12/2019

I added this film on seeing the two other promising reviews. Did we see the same film? No jump moments , boring, uninteresting story. Poorly acted rubbish.

Bored to the ground - The Hole in the Ground review by BE

What a very silly film. No substance and I don’t like guessing games. Got half way thru and fast forwarded the rest to very near the end to see if anything interesting was going to happen. Nope.

Beautifully filmed horror (mild spoilers) - The Hole in the Ground review by NP

Spoiler Alert
30/10/2020

This hugely impressive horror hangs on the success of young James Quinn Markie, who plays Chris O’Neill, son of single parent Sarah (Seána Kerslake). Often in these films where a child’s behaviour suggests he may or may not be under the influence of something demonic, the effects of the possession border on the bratty and petulant in place of a truly believable transformation (this is an understandable side effect of using unpractised performers). Happily, young Chris only fleetingly comes across as merely spoilt, which is just as well given his mother’s disinclination to scold him, and provides a very convincing focal character.

The story stands up very well too for the most part. At times, it seems to be veering on the often-used ‘is the horror real or in the mind of the pill-popping central character’, and at times we wonder if Chris really has been taken over by some evil entity. That things pan out quite differently and unexpectedly is a testament to a well-weaved plot, despite things going a little crazy during the final act.

The locations are stunning, and beautifully directed by co-writer Stephen Shields. My score is 7 out of 10.
