It looks like horror-master Joe Dante (Gremlins) finally has a theatrical release date for The Hole, a thriller centering on a family who discovers a padlocked door in their basement that covers a bottomless hole. Obviously, nothing good can come of this as the hole seems to be a portal to Hell which houses the family members’ deepest fears. You can get a better look at the film in this newly released theatrical trailer.
The Hole, starring Teri Polo, Bruce Dern, Chris Massoglia, Haley Bennett and Nathan Gamble opens in theaters September 28th. Hit the jump to check out the synopsis, trailer and poster.
Happy Saturday, everyone. The fall movie season is upon us and, in honor of its arrival, Adam and myself are working on a “most anticipated” feature which you should be able to check out later this weekend.

And to play that dolphin, the filmmakers did a bit of stunt casting by putting Winter in the movie. And as we arrived for our set visit, the first star we met was the disfigured dolphin.
While on the set we toured the aquarium set for the film, and met with director Charles Martin Smith, stars Austin Stowell Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman and child actor Nathan Gamble. Check out our conversations with the stars and our look at the set after the jump.
When Joe Dante (“Gremlins”, “Piranha”, “The Howling”) said he was going to direct “The Hole”, you could feel the positive energy from every horror fan. And with the film premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next month, they’re that much closer to seeing it for themselves. But while fans will have to wait a bit longer to see the film, I’ve got a few new images from “The Hole” and they’re after the jump – along with the synopsis:
