THE HOLE IN THE GROUND

Cert 15 Stars 3

Seana Kerslake’s single mother is taken to the precipice of sanity in this brooding and ambitious Irish rural family horror as her young son struggles to adjust to their new tumbledown farmhouse home on the edge of a large forest.

She’s an increasingly desperate and isolated figure as she suffers panic attacks, hallucinations and premonitions.

Strong on mood, focused in its intent and anchored by performances, the sound design assaults the audience with both barrels while the cinematography makes us feel the damp chill of the wood, making for an impressively pungent directorial debut from writer, Lee Cronin.
