Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has a good ambiguous premise but comes apart when it must reach a conclusion if its protagonist, Liz Dunn (Thora Birch), is a psychopath or a victim."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Sem provocar grandes sustos ou estabelecer um bom clima de tensão, este é um filme sem propósito definido. Além disso, a história é rasa e a direção de Hamm, burocrática."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Somehow, long after our sympathies have shrivelled up, Birch is able to squeeze another drop of compassion out of the tube."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Una buena opción, una cinta interesante, bien lograda, y con giros gratos respecto al suspenso clásico de adolescentes al que estamos acostumbrados..."
‑ Alex Ramirez, Cinenganos
"When we finally come to hear and understand what probably did happen down in the hole, it's more elaborately ridiculous than the first story we heard."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The last 45-minutes of The Hole are so entertaining, so creepy that it's easy to forget how lame the first hour is."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Has similar premise to "Blair Witch 2", but also has better acting and a plot that makes sense"
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"you get the feeling the actors are hoping their characters will die soon so they can get off the set, fast."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"An adolescent adventure that goes disastrously wrong for the protagonists - and, quite frequently, the audience."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"The qualities which made [Birch] flourish in that multi-Oscar-winner [American Beauty] are still abundantly clear."
‑ Michael Thomson, BBC
