Here’s the AFM sales art for The Hole In the Ground, which stars Seána Kerslake (A Date For Mad Mary) as a young single mother who is trapped between rationality and the unexplained as she becomes convinced her little boy has been transformed by something sinister from the depths of a mysterious sinkhole.
Bankside Films has worldwide sales rights to Irish Film Board-backed horror film that marks the directorial debut of Lee Cronin’s horror film that also stars James Cosmo, Kati Outinen, and James Quinn Markey.
“The Hole In The Ground will be an authored genre film in the vein of The Babadook,” Stephen Kelliher of Bankside films said of the project when ScreenDaily announced is earlier this year.
The film is produced by John Keville and Conor Barry of Irish production outfit Savage Productions, and co produced by Benoit Roland of Wrong Men in Belgium and Ulla Simonen of MADE in Finland and is to be funded by The Irish Film Board with the participation of Head Gear Films.
Phil Hunt and Compton Ross serve as executive producers for Head Gear Films and Hilary Davis and Stephen Kelliher are executive producers for Bankside Films.
