Joe Dante’s ‘The Hole’ Emerges From Where It Was Buried

The Hole
Bold Films

Joe Dante has long been championed by the geek community. The director of such films as ‘Gremlins’ and its sequel, ‘The Howling,’ ‘Piranha’ (the original) and ‘Innerspace’ may have only had one breakout hit, but his work is admired by cineastes everywhere. His most recent film, 2009′s ‘The Hole’ was released around the world but is only now hitting America.

As the studio behind the picture is Bold Films (and even the trailer recognizes the film was made in 2009) we wouldn’t expect a wide release for the title, which has received mixed notices amongst some modestly favorable reviews. The problem is that the film was shot in 3D, and it’s hard to know if it will be projected that way stateside.

Here’s the synopsis:

After moving into a new town, brothers Dane and Lucas and their neighbor Julie discover a bottomless hole in their basement that brings their nightmares to life. With shadows lurking around every corner, they must face their darkest fears in order to put an end to the mystery of the hole.

There aren’t too many notable names in the production (Teri Polo, Bruce Dern), but we’ll definitely be keeping our eye out for the film’s release. As it probably won’t be in too many theaters, it’s likely we’ll have to.
