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 Halloween, Collider readers. Being the kind of guy I am, I’ve decided to forgo the tricks this year and offer up some treats. Specifically, some exclusive coverage of this year’s AFI Fest in Hollywood. Tonight that means two reviews of some of my most anticipated films that made their debuts over the last two nights. First up, we’ve got Wes Anderson’s “The Fantastic Mr. Fox”, followed by Joe Dante’s “The Hole”. Hit the jump to check them out.
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:
Comic-Con is on like Donkey Kong. After waiting in a massive line full of “Twilight” fans in Burger King hats, and then sitting in Hall-H for an extra hour, things are finally getting started.
Read on for minute-by-minute coverage of Hall-H’s 3D presentations including “A Christmas Carol”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Tron Legacy”, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, “The Hole”, and “The Final Destination”. Also, please forgive any typos or grammar mistakes as I wrote this train-of-thought and trying to keep pace with the action on stage.
