Shortly after its Sundance premiere and a DIRECTV/VOD release, Lionsgate will be releasing A24's latest horror film, The Hole in the Ground, on DVD April 30th, 2019.
Said to be in the same vein as The Babadook, Lee Cronin’s supernatural folklore is about a child who disappears into a sinkhole and returns completely different.
"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.
