Watch This: First Trailer for Joe Dante's Thriller The Hole 3D
We haven't seen a new film from Gremlins director Joe Dante since Looney Tunes: Back in Action in 2003 and Small Soldiers in 1998 before that, but he's finally back with one. The Hole 3D is another unique Joe Dante-esque horror/thriller about some kids who discover a "bottomless hole" in their basement that "leads to the darkest corridors of their fears and nightmares." Our friends at Quiet Earth found the first trailer, and even though I first saw this at Comic-Con last year, this is the very first time it's ever appeared online. This looks cheesy and fun, but that's exactly the kind of horror films that Dante does well, so it should be good.
Watch the first promo trailer for Joe Dante's The Hole 3D, originally found via YouTube:
The Hole, filmed in 3-D, centers on Susan (Teri Polo), a mother who moves with her teen sons to a rural house where the three are forced to face their fears after discovering a bottomless hole in the basement.
The Hole is directed by one-of-a-kind filmmaker Joe Dante, of films like Piranha, The Howling, Gremlins, Explorers, Innerspace, The 'burbs, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, and Small Soldiers. The script was written by Mark L. Smith, of only Séance and Vacancy previously. The Hole was shot independently and still doesn't have a US distributor yet. This already premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals last year but is currently laying dormant. However, Bloody-Disgusting says it could be ready for release in fall of this year.
