Joe Dante on

The Hole (British)

Released 2012
Distributor Big Air Studios

A dysfunctional family faces its fears in a retro-80s style horror film from TFH Guru Joe Dante. Although this is the newest title we’ve featured on Trailers from Hell, it’s still not brand-new, since it’s been awaiting US distribution for three years. And now that it’s finally getting out there this week via Big Air Studios, we’re devoting the whole week to plugging it. Still in keeping with our three-changes-per-week schedule, we’re featuring three different trailers for The Hole: the new domestic trailer, the Italian trailer and the British trailer.
