A few weeks back, we reported that A24 had acquired the rights to The Hole in the Ground ahead of its premiere at Sundance Film Festival. We've now learned that the film will receive a limited theatrical release on March 1st, 2019 as well as an exclusive release on DirecTV next month!
Said to be in the same vein as The Babadook, Crypt Teaze discovered that Lee Cronin’s supernatural folklore will arrive exclusively on DirecTV January 31st, 2019, similar to the release of Bryan Bertino’s creature feature The Monster.
In the film, "A mother who moves with her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey) to a country home on the edge of a forest, which happens to hide an enormous sinkhole. Her boy vanishes and soon reappears unharmed, though his behavior grows increasingly disturbing, leaving his mother to fear the worst — that the boy in her home isn’t her son at all."
Leadership at A24 called the film a “remarkable debut film, weaving suspense, terror, and supernatural folklore into a richly evocative story about the primal fears of motherhood.”
The Hole in the Ground also stars Seána Kerslake, James Cosmo, Kati Outinen, and James Quinn Markey.
