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.

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.

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.

The last 45-minutes of The Hole are so entertaining, so creepy that it's easy to forget how lame the first hour is.

Has similar premise to "Blair Witch 2", but also has better acting and a plot that makes sense

Christopher Null

Harry Guerin
RTÉ (Ireland)

An adolescent adventure that goes disastrously wrong for the protagonists - and, quite frequently, the audience.

The qualities which made [Birch] flourish in that multi-Oscar-winner [American Beauty] are still abundantly clear.

Fairly predictable and pointless movie. It's okay, but I wouldn't want to sit through it again.
