In the currently-screening-at-Sundance horror film The Hole in the Ground, Sarah (Seána Kerslake) and her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey) move to a new home in the countryside, next to a forest that hides an enormous sinkhole. One night, Chris vanishes, and when he reappears he seems unharmed and unchanged. But, as his behavior grows increasingly disturbing, Sarah begins to fear that the boy who has returned may not be her son at all.

Hole-y moly!

The Hole in the Ground is the feature debut of writer-director Lee Cronin and costars James Cosmo, Kati Outinen, Simone Kirby, and Steve Wall. The film will be available to watch exclusively on DIRECTV from Jan. 31 and is released in theaters, March 1.
