Review: Joe Dante Can't Quite Recapture His Earlier Magic With 'The Hole'

Some directors are simply in the right place at the right time. This is why Tim Burton has spent the last decade recycling the same ideas, visuals and motifs to ever-diminishing returns with ever-escalating budgets. Surely Burton would not be where he was had the ever-underestimated Joe Dante not turned down directing “Batman” in the late '80s, citing the self-awareness that has eluded Burton his entire career: Dante famously refused the job on the grounds of being a Joker fan more than a Batman one. Sadly, it’s that sort of vision that allows Burton to keep lighting studios’ money on fire while Dante is reduced to low-fi time-wasters like “The Hole." “The Hole” follows the Thompsons, a big-city family who abscond to the suburbs, transplanting two young sons coping with serious growing pains. In his late teens, moody Dane (Chris Massoglia) now sulks and complains, pressured to be

Review: ‘The Hole’ is a Mild Amblin Film Updated For a Modern Audience

With a family-friendly return to the kind of filmmaking Amblin did best in the 80s, Joe Dante‘s The Hole earns a strange honor as a horror film. It’s pleasant. A pleasant, scary movie. It builds from a standard coming-of-age tale: the single mom (Teri Polo), teenage son Dane (Chris Massoglia) and younger brother Lucas (Nathan Gamble) move from the big city to the small town complete with the tough transition. That change of pace (at least for Dane) is softened by the cute next-door neighbor Julie (Haley Bennett), but it’s made a bit more difficult by the bottomless hole in their basement that brings their personal fears to life. Apparently that wasn’t in the real estate listing. That core element allows Dante, working from Mark L. Smith‘s script, to explore different levels of fear. For Lucas, it’s a clown doll that terrorizes him, leaving Dante to craft a tone worthy of

Exclusive: Joe Dante Talks The Hole!
Joe Dante Talks The Hole, in select theaters this weekend before its October 2nd Blu-ray debut

Joe Dante has made some great films throughout his career. He started off by working with Roger Corman, making the original Piranha. He then went onto make such seminal 80s masterworks as Gremlins, Explorers, Innerspace, and our own personal favorite The 'burbs. His second to last film was Looney Tunes: Back In Action, and then he went onto make The Hole, which is often referred to as his comeback and a return to form for the director, who is known for making darker family fare that doesn't quite fit the norm.

The Hole was supposed to come out in 2009. It was shot in 3D, one of the first to jump on the bandwagon, but the conversion of other 2D films into 3D flooded the market, and The Hole was swallowed up in the storm.

“The Hole” Gets Trailer & Release Date

“The Hole” Gets Trailer & Release Date
Three years after completion, Joe Dante’s film, The Hole, will finally hit theaters on September 28th. The Hole was shot independently in Vancouver in 3D, and premiered at the Venice, Toronto and AFI Film Festivals in late 2009.

New Trailer for Joe Dante's 'The Hole', Now Arriving Three Years Late

Big Air Studios & Bold Films are finally ready to release The Hole, the new horror from Gremlins director Joe Dante, that has been on hold for three years. I'm a lil' grouchy because we first covered it way back in 2009. We even ran a trailer in May of 2010 for a release that year, but it never made it. Finally, after all this time, it's arriving late September. The Hole, originally filmed in 3D (back when it was "3-D"), stars Haley Bennett, Nathan Gamble and Chris Massoglia as children terrorized by some eerie, evil hole from hell they find in their basement. It's the kind of kids' horror Dante is known for, but doesn't look that amazing. One of the early reviews from Tiff three years ago when it premiered as The Hole 3D gave it some positive praise and called it "a film that is sure to make ...
