My review of "The Hole in the Ground": stylish but familiar


Lee Cronin and cinematographer Tom Comerfeld clearly expended a lot of effort in crafting a dread-inducing atmosphere and nailing down the look of the film. ‘The Hole in the Ground’ has some neat directorial flourishes, like a close-up of Chris’ hand (viewed from under a closed door) as it crawls, spider-like, across the floor of his bedroom, and the visual connection between the hole and the human iris. The expert use of lighting and framing to obscure some of the more supernatural occurrences in the film and a reliance on practical effects over CGI is also refreshing.
