Product Description

Four young students, two girls and two boys go missing from an exclusive English private school. After an 18 day search nobody expects to see them alive again, but one of the girls reappears. Liz has survived the ordeal. As she relives the experience of being trapped for two weeks in a dark, underground bunker, it becomes clear that she is so traumatized by what happened that she can’t sort fact from fiction. But what really happened in the hole? As detectives dig through the bunker, a terrible truth begins to emerge, where each piece of the puzzle threatening to expose the full horror of the actual events; an obsession that became the ultimate nightmare.

-----

Quatre étudiants d'une prestigieuse université britannique manquent à l'appel depuis 18 jours. Personne ne croit plus les revoir. Mais voilà que réapparaît Liz, une des disparus, couverte de sang et traumatisée par ce qui vient de lui arriver.

Format: DVD
Before she was engaging in who-can-wear-more-mascara contests with Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley was trapped in a bunker with Thora Birch and two guys for 18 days. I expected this to be a film about four teens trapped in an underground bunker trying to survive as days turn into weeks (two and a half to be exact), but that really isn't what The Hole is all about. That fact becomes obvious in the opening scene, as we watch a haggard survivor emerge and shuffle her way back to safety. Once she begins telling her story, I thought the rest of the movie would just be one big flashback leading us back to the present - wrong again. The plot to this film is much more dark and insidious as all that - and, while it's not problem-free, I think the film is all the better for it. This is very much a psychological thriller which almost succeeds magnificently - almost. And, as unlikely as it may sound, the story plays off the kinds of emotions all of us have experienced - to some degree - at some point in our lives. Stripped down to the very bone, what you have here is a love story.

So here are your choices: go along on a boring school field trip, spend a tedious weekend at home, or sneak away to an underground bunker to party with Keira Knightley and Thora Birch for three days. I'm a claustrophobic non-rebel, but I would be totally down (pun intended) with hunkering in the bunker. It certainly seemed like a good idea to Liz Dunn (Birch) because it would give her a chance to spend some quality time with the suddenly available apple of her eye, Mike Steel (Desmond Harrington).

this was one excellent thriller.it's well written,intelligent,and has
chills and suspense galore.this is not a gore type of horror movie.it's
more about the atmosphere,and what is implied,rather than what is
shown.there are some scenes that will leave an impression for sure,but
that is not the only intent of the movie.the main intent,i believe is
to make you think,long after the movie ends.you never really know
what's real and what's not,even at the end.i was riveted from the
beginning,right to the end credits.also,the acting is exceptional from
all concerned.Thora Birch plays the man character,and is superb.bottom
line:if you want a thought provoking horror with loads of atmosphere
and suspense,and less gore,this is your movie.my vote for The
Hole: 5/5

This is a great little movie from England, though it stars Thora Birch (Lester's daughter from American Beauty). I won't give away the story, only to say that it takes a completely different tack to the material - one that echoes Kurosawa's Rashomon, if you know to what I am referring.
I have to say that, while I wasn't overly taken by Birch in American Beauty, here she does a phenomenal job with some VERY demanding material. Let's just say her character isn't as simple as it may seem in the beginning. And the supporting cast is also very good (it doesn't hurt that Kiera Knightley is a dead ringer for Natalie Portman, and was used to that effect in The Phantom Menace). The film is beautifully shot, and the DVD's image does it good justice.

the first scene grabs you. liz, a girl in ratty clothes who looks as if she's been on the edge of dehydration and starvation for weeks (as it turns out, she HAS) races down an empty hallway, collapses next to a phone, dials 911, and screams into the reciever. this same girl later tells the story of four kids trying to escape a dreaded school trip to wales, who are then locked in an old bomb shelter by a sadistic classmate named martin....or were they? through a series of flashbacks, we learn the truth about liz's time in 'the hole,' and what really happened to the others who were with her.

A friend recommended this movie to me, and it was on tv one night so i took a look at it. Turned out that this movie was an amazing thriller with a lot of twists and an intriguing plot! Definately has become my favourite. It's really difficult to find, so take advantage of being able to buy it while you can. I couldn't find it in any store and very few renting stores had it available. Definately worth adding to your collection!
