Comparisons to HEREDITARY and THE BABADOOK are already being lobbed around when talking about THE HOLE IN THE GROUND. The Irish evil child/troubled mom flick doesn’t quite live up to those standards, but it is a brilliant and nuanced horror film.
Single mom Sarah (Seana Kerslake) and her son Chris (James Quinn Markey) move into a new town to start a new life. Things seem idyllic, save for the crazy woman who wanders the roadways in her nightie that Sarah barely misses with her car. After Sarah has an argument with her son, he runs out of the house and into the nearby forest. Sarah loses Chris momentarily, but finds him on the edge of a giant crater in the middle of the forest. Upon returning home, Chris begins to act differently. Sarah begins suspecting her son is not hers==the same suspicions that drove the crazy lady nuts. Or is Sarah just going off the deep end herself?
