Reviews

Empire Magazine

Ian Freer

For kids hopped up on Red Bull and Saw XIV, The Hole might feel on the tame side, but it has more imagination, style and genuine dread than a hatful of My Bloody Valentines.

The Independent on Sunday

Jonathan Romney

Reinventing the basics, Dante comes up with an entertainment that's honest, no-frills and surprisingly eerie (it has some good gags too, and the great Bruce Dern).

The Daily Telegraph

Marc Lee

Dante delivers some terrific spine-tingling chills on the way towards a disappointingly overblown climax.

Time Out

Tom Huddleston

Dante plays the early scenes perfectly, racking up the clammy dread without tipping over into outright nastiness. But somewhere along the way, the tension dissipates: once the somewhat pedestrian truth about the hole is revealed, there’s nowhere for the film to go.

The Sunday Times

Edward Porter

The apparitions that eventually emerge from this abyss have enough stylish scariness to impress viewers who are new to this sort of thing, but even neophytes might find the film’s easy ending an anticlimax.

Philip French

A horror version of ET.

The Guardian

Peter Bradshaw

It's the kind of knockabout, kid's-eye-view comedy-horror that hasn't been made for a while, with some nasty, frightening touches, but expertly encased in a distinctive family-movie aesthetic.

The Independent

Anthony Quinn

Evil Mr Punch puppets, glowering giants and spooky blonde girls offer a few frights, though nothing quite as unsettling as the sight of Bruce Dern, playing a wizened old guy with a thing for electric lights. His role in the story is extremely tenuous – but hell, it's Bruce Dern!

The Hole is a meaningless exercise in 3-D form over derivative content.
