Movie Info

Tragically mysterious deaths have occurred, and English schoolgirl Liz Dunn (Thora Birch) knows what happened, so psychiatrist Philippa Horwood (Embeth Davidtz) is brought in to investigate. Liz's story: Her friend Martyn (Daniel Brocklebank) sealed her, her pal Frances (Keira Knightley) and handsome classmate Mike (Desmond Harrington) in a bomb shelter and left them to die. Only that might not be true, as Martyn claims Liz masterminded the plan that brought about such disturbing consequences.

    overbearing film and a waste of talent. it all leads to the usual conclusion that will leave you bored, easier to avoid if you can

    A great thriller that slipped under the radar of most. Well crafted and well acted by Thora Birch and a young Keira Knightley. A "must see if you can find" film.

    The Hole is a daring physiological thriller full of mystery and intrigue. The story surrounds a group of teenagers who go on a private get away to an abandoned World War II bunker, but when only one of them comes back alive an investigation is launching into the mystery of what happened. Thora Birch, Keira Knightley, and Desmond Harrington lead the cast and give solid performance. The mystery is well-crafted and contains several twists and turns as the film switches to different points of view. Additionally, the paced is especially good and is able to hold the suspense and intrigue from beginning to end. The Hole is a smart, provocative film and a compelling thriller.

    Subtly sick and twisted, The Hole may not offer the thrills, but it certainly offers the chills thanks to the writing of the lead character - a deranged and outrageously twisted schoolgirl.
