We’ve just received some new info for the incoming home release for horror piece The Hole In The Ground. The film, which will be released by Vertigo, is described as a bold and brilliantly constructed cross between Pet Sematary and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and is the debut feature from writer-director Lee Cronin.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Cronin elicits terrific performances from a brilliant cast, particularly Seána Kerslake (A Date For Mad Mary) as a single mother driven to her wits end, and a wonderfully unnerving James Quinn Markey (Vikings) as her son, who might not be what he seems after his disappearance in the forest. Also appearing are Simone Kirby (Peaky Blinders), Steve Wall (Vikings) Eoin Macken and veteran character actor James Cosmo.
Beautifully filmed in the misty, mysterious Irish countryside, and with an ominous, powerful score Stephen McKeon (Black Mirror) that recalls the rank dread of The Witch,
