2019 is going to be a popular year for creepy kids, with Orion's The Prodigy releasing next month, the Pet Sematary remake in April and A24's The Hole in the Ground, which will be released this month.
Today, we have the film's first official trailer to share with you ahead of its premiere at Sundance Film Festival.
Said to be in the same vein as The Babadook, Lee Cronin’s supernatural folklore will arrive exclusively on DirecTV January 31st, followed by a limited theatrical release on March 1st.
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.
