The Hole (2009)

Directed by
Joe Dante

A creepy tale from director Joe Dante about a suburban home that has among its features a secret portal, which would perhaps be best left undiscovered. The house is the new abode of teen Dane Thompson, his mum Susan and his irritating younger sibling Lucas. Kids being kids, it's not long before they've thoroughly explored their new residence - and found the strange, heavily padlocked trapdoor down in the basement. Together with Julie, the girl who lives next door, the unwisely intrepid gang manage to remove the carefully constructed barriers and lift the lid, to find themselves staring into... a pitch-black hole. At first it's not much to look at, but they gradually learn why the previous owner was so desperately keen to keep it permanently covered. Essentially aimed at a family audience, the film delivers enough genuine frights to make its 12 certificate necessary.
