Movie Info

Sarah and her young son Chris move to a new home in the Irish countryside, next to a forest that hides an enormous sinkhole. One night, Chris vanishes, and when he reappears, he seems unharmed and unchanged. But, as his behavior grows increasingly disturbing, Sarah begins to fear that the boy who has returned may not be her son at all.

Critic Reviews for The Hole in the Ground

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (3)

[W]hile this is more generically conventional than Jennifer Kent's breakout thriller, it still taps potently into parental anxieties and primal fears.

It becomes frustrating to see Cronin populate his genre film with more and more familiar elements, handling them as mere jump scare material and without adding a signature of his own.

Jan 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Rewrites no genre rules, but abounds in bristly calling-card atmospherics.

The film is so finely crafted that it's a little frustrating that it has so little subtext.

Comparisons to The Changeling and The Omen may well be inescapable, but The Hole in the Ground still manages to carve out a comfortable space for itself

Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Overall, it's a helluva first film from Cronin, who shows great promise here.
