March is going to be a wild month and A24 is getting into the mix with their newly acquired The Hole in the Ground, a film we’ve been tracking here on Bloody for well over a year.
Said to be in the vein of The Babadook, Bloody Disgusting learned that Lee Cronin’s horror film will arrive in limited theaters on March 1, 2019. The release should be similar to that of Bryan Bertino’s The Monster, which means it will also be on DirecTV.
In the film,
“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.
“The Hole in the Ground weaves suspense, terror, and supernatural folklore into a richly evocative story about the primal fears of motherhood.”
Seána Kerslake (A Date For Mad Mary) stars with James Cosmo, Kati Outinen, and James Quinn Markey.
The film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
