Please don't confuse 2001's "The Hole" with the film by the same title, made in 2009. Directed by Nick Hamm, "The Hole" is an edge of the seat thriller that will have you squirming. Thora Birch and Keira Knightley (...yes, Miss Knightley is in a movie we actually want to watch) head a great cast in what may be termed an upper class "River's Edge." Remember that one...not quite the feel-good movie of the eighties. Everything about this film is ominous, and will leave you thinking way past your bed time.
What happens next? Drugs. Sex. Alcohol. Then the week-end concludes and the kids are all packed up waiting for Martin to show up. Did I mention no cell phone reception? You got it....Martin is a no-show. 18 days later, Liz is found in shock wandering on a road near the school. Her memory....gone. Enter Dr. Horwood (Embeth Davidtz). Her mission: help Liz remember the past 18 days. The cops key in on Martin, but he is ice cold....and a genius. Of course he has an airtight alibi. As Dr. Horwood jogs Liz's memory, the answers are even more terrifying than the ordeal that befell Liz' three friends.
