Cheesy, borderline corny towards the end. The premise remained rather shallow throughout, to my dismay. It's such an interesting concept. Still, it was decent entertainment for an hour and a half.

A creepy little horror film for kids - with scened and themes that may be a little too strong for the younger ones

(2012) The Hole
HORROR/ ADVENTURE

Older brother Dane (Chris Massoglia) and younger brother Lucas (Nathan Gamble) stumbling onto a mysterious dark hole abyss from the basement of their new house. And of course, they don't properly lock it resulting to strange looking things and beings coming out of there. Viewers are never explained about the whereabouts of Creepy Carl (Bruce Dern) who's the original house owner. The end of the film convolutes the so-called hole, and is not as gruesome as other horror films but it is similar to "Poltergeist".

2 out of 4 stars

I really enjoyed it. I had no idea what it was or was about, but it was very entertaining.

There are definitely some spooky parts but mostly it felt like a prolonged episode of Goosebumps.

A great movie with all the 14A trappings. A couple young heroes, adults who don't believe them, a cute neighbour girl to join in the adventure. Classic. Amazing Finale BTW.

It's nice to see Joe Dante back in the directors chair again. The Hole is all good fun and very reminiscent of his previous classics; Twilight Zone, The 'Burbs, and the brilliant TV series Eerie, Indiana. It didn't feel like anything new but rather a return to the films I loved in the 80's. I loved the Bruce Dern character, a real nod to Lt. Mark Rumsfield. That and the very much appreciated Dick Miller cameo did it for me, give me this over Super 8 everyday. Could the king of Cartoon kooky be back?

Not bad. This movie is like a horror for young adults. Not so scary but still a little creepy.

Not a bad little horror film.

If you're a big fan of Goosebumps you'll like this, as it's a slightly more grown up version of the sort of story you'd find in one of those books. If you're looking for something a little more visceral and terrifying, look elsewhere.

The film is all too mild and lacking on conceivable depths. It was decent, but feels thoroughly unfinished.
January 16, 2013
The Hole 3D is a another plotless, pointless, artless, horrible horror film. features very bad acting and the WORST script I've ever see in my whole life. Why those people keep making film like this?

Welcome back Joe Dante, you have been much missed.
November 3, 2013
Good, creepy flick just like they used to make, and suitable for family viewing on a cold, dark afternoon, More please. Mr Dante!

very good family horror film

Occasionally really sells its concept of horror-film-for-the-whole-family, but the tone strays into cheeseball a little too often.

Director Joe Dante presents this scary little Horror as a throwback to the teen terror of the '80s and adds a head-on, face-up of child abuse. The 'hole' itself tortures its victims with what they're most afraid of, and for Dane (Chris Massoglia), that means a now-jailed, abusive father.

Dante almost always delivers high-energy, but mostly juvenile scares. He seems to concentrate on exciting and imaginitive visuals in his movies, but this time he's more interested in bringing a teenage trio together to battle the Hell from below.

The young actors are really good and are the difference makers in "The Hole". The adults are mostly oblivious parents that offer little assistance to the distressed youngsters.

This isn't as crazy as Joe Dante's "Gremlins", "Small Soldiers" or "Explorers" and certainly isn't similar to say, "The Howling" but it is a solid little shocker with some surprises.

This is the kind of horror film for younger audiences that aren't really made anymore - has some thrills yet won't traumatize younger viewer... nor will it annoy the adults. While it lacks the "live wire" charge of his best work (Gremlins, the original Piranha), Dante shows that he still has a firm grasp on the ennui of suburban life while guiding effective performances from his young cast and peppering the story with relate-able adult theme. Kinda chintzy but effective nonetheless.

A horror movie for children that hasn't been toned down at all. Creepy stuff!
