      Audience Reviews for The Hole in the Ground

      • Mar 05, 2019

        Despite a few pitfalls, the film soars over most recent horror film efforts (I would place it above Hereditary and The Witch) due to an intelligent approach to its subject and a (mostly) successful exercise of subtlety. It is a great example of how horror does not need to be explained thoroughly, or have elaborate scenes, or even try and reinvent the wheel in order to leave a mark.
