A24’s ‘The Hole in the Ground’ Gets First Trailer Ahead of Sundance Premiere

Written by on January 14, 2019 

Last year at Sundance Film Festival saw the premiere of A24’s Hereditary, which went on to be the company’s biggest hit worldwide. Do they have another horror hit debuting at the festival this year? Lee Cronin’s directorial debut The Hole in the Ground will premiere in Park City and we now have the first trailer.

Following a single mother and her son moving to a new town, the kid ventures into the woods and discovers a strange hole…in the ground and after his mom finds him, he begins to elicit strange qualities. As we learned with Hereditary (and hundreds of films before it), it wouldn’t be a horror hit if it didn’t have a strange, perhaps possessed child, so it at least has that going for it.

Starring Seána Kerslake, James Cosmo, Kati Outinen, Simone Kirby, Steve Wall, and James Quinn Markey, see the trailer below via Empire.

Sarah (Seána Kerslake) moves her precocious son, Chris (James Quinn Markey), to a secluded new home in a rural town, trying to ease his apprehensions as they hope for a fresh start after a difficult past. But after a startling encounter with a mysterious new neighbour, Sarah’s nerves are set on edge. Chris disappears in the night into the forest behind their house, and Sarah discovers an ominous, gaping sinkhole while searching for him. Though he returns, some disturbing behavioural changes emerge, and Sarah begins to worry that the boy who came back is not her son.

The Hole in the Ground premieres at Sundance Film Festival and will hit DirectTV on January 31 before arriving in theaters on March 1.
