'The Hole In The Ground' Could Be The Scariest Horror Film Of 2019

'The Hole In The Ground' Could Be The  Scariest Horror Film Of 2019

We are only just a couple of weeks into January, but this year has already seen plenty of water-cooler moment television and film.

And now there is another movie to add to your 'must-watch' list, and by the looks of the trailer, it could be the scariest movie of the year upon its March release date.

Titled The Hole In The Ground, the horror flick sees single mum Sarah (Seána Kerslake) take her son Chris (James Quinn Markey) to go and live in the middle of nowhere in a rural home. As you do.


Doesn't sound too creepy just yet, right? Well, in the forest behind their new home, something pretty terrifying is happening.

It all begins sunshine, smiles and roses - that is until little Chris runs off into the spine-chilling forest and Sarah has to try and find him.

But instead of finding her boy, she stumbles upon a ginormous sinkhole and fears that Chris has fallen inside and disappeared.

'The Hole In The Ground' Just Landed On Netflix And Horror Fans Will Love It


She screams for her son, and it seems like he comes running back to her. But when Sarah's son's behaviour becomes increasingly disturbing in the aftermath, she realises that her little boy may not have been returned to her at all.

Add to that her creepy neighbour screaming out that "he's not your boy" and headbutting the car window as Sarah passes by their home in the two-minute trailer, you have got yourself the premise of a decent horror.

Here's the official synopsis: "Trying to escape her broken past, Sarah O'Neill (Seána Kerslake) is building a new life on the fringes of a backwoods rural town with her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey).


"A terrifying encounter with a mysterious neighbour shatters her fragile security, throwing Sarah into a spiralling nightmare of paranoia and mistrust, as she tries to uncover if the disturbing changes in her little boy are connected to an ominous sinkhole buried deep in the forest that borders their home."

As you've probably guessed, there are much more twists and turns to the story, which you will be able to watch when the movie hits cinema screens on Friday, 1st March.
