Check This Out: Teaser Poster for Joe Dante's The Hole in 3D
No, The Hole isn't a new porno, it's a creepy new thriller from director Joe Dante, the man who brought us Gremlins and Piranha and other great movies. ShockTillYouDrop has unveiled our first high res look at the poster from the movie featuring the "hole" in the basement in which all the "bad guys" come from. Much like Small Soldiers, one of Dante's other past movies, The Hole is actually made for the younger teenage demographic, but it's still creepy. I got to see an early trailer at Comic-Con and it looks okay, not anything amazing, but just because it's Joe Dante, I'm mildly excited for it. Anyway, check the poster out below!
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 screenplay was written by Mark L. Smith, of only Séance and Vacancy previously. The Hole was film independently and doesn't currently have a distributor, although we expect to hear more about its release plans very soon!

I love Joe Dante, glad he's back. I don't think the younger cast is anything to worry about - Gremlins is technically a 'kids movie' but that's still brilliant. Any news on when we can see a teaser trailer for this?

Go Joe! But I remember an English film called the Hole it had Keria Knightley and Thora Birch as the leads and its about four stundents who go down into an old bomb shelter so Thora Birch's character could score with some guy, well Thora Birch's character end saying she lost the key and slowly they all die minus her, of starvation, well only one dies of that and another dies from having his head slammed into concrete, the other gets killed by a metal spike! But as for this The Hole it sounds a little bit better than that!

#4 That was my exact expression, lol. Clowns and dolls freak me out. I remember watching "Making Contact" as a kid where a little boy named Joey had a magical telephone that let him talk to his dead dad. And there was this evil ventriloquist puppet in a black suit. It was so fucking creepy when it "woke up" and rolled it's eyeballs... >.< I wish I could get my hands on that movie again. But not even Netflix has it. =( Aaaanyways, this movie seems to be right down my alley.

#6 If you've seen The Hole - the Keira Knightley/Thora Birch film - you'll know it's nothing like the description of this new movie. It's fine, but with Dante involved I get the feeling this will be much more fun.
