[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.
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
Overall, it's a helluva first film from Cronin, who shows great promise here.
It is a beautifully unnerving film that delves psychologically into the connection of two fruitfully dark characters.
You will be rewarded to a bonkers and entertaining horror film, if you manage to sit through the dull first half hour.
Cronin does a fine job sustaining disquiet, also delivering a climax that satisfies, slipping into the unreal without destroying tonality.
Lee Cronin's creepy kid movie will scare and move you...
A refreshing take on the psychological horror genre, subverting genre tropes to deliver a nail-biting, seat-jumping jaunt with a story that mines the relationship of self-doubt, leading to revelations about the truth of oneself and strength of character.
Kerslake is a magnetic lead actor, incredibly real and relatable, which makes her struggle with forces beyond her that much more compelling.
