Rated PG-13 · 92 minutes
An unhappy teen (Chris Massoglia) and his adventuresome brother (Nathan Gamble) move into a new home with their single mom (Teri Polo) and discover a trap door in the basement; when they pry it open, they uncover a bottomless hole, and horrible stuff begins to crawl out. "Depth isn't a slapped-on gimmick in The Hole, but a metaphor central to its plot," critic Dave Kehr wrote after a jury on which he served awarded Joe Dante's 2009 horror thriller a special prize for best 3-D feature at the Venice film festival. Indeed, the sense of a roiling subconscious beneath the basement floor is so potent that even the stock scares on tap—a murderous clown doll, a little girl in ghostly white dress—are creepily effective. Long shelved in the U.S. (where modestly produced 3-D movies have a hard time winning distribution), this is scheduled to play select cities in the fall, but it screens at Music Box in a 2-D print. With Bruce Dern.
