Next, a ghoulish sound emanates from a mist-shrouded hole in the Earth near where a Missouri boy has lost his dog. The boy's father is lowered into the hole and lets out an agonizing scream! Finally, a senator returning home from a party finds a lost girl on a bridge and learns from her father that she died years earlier! Written by

The graveyard scenes were shot on location at the Mount Holly Cemetery in Little Rock, Arkansas. See more »
The opening of the film has a roll up of text on screen, like Star Wars and many films do. A narrator, not Rod Serling, is reading the words you see on screen, but about halfway through the roll what the narrator is reading and what is on screen are totally different. One or the other must be from a wrong draft of the script. See more »
Listen you well to my word. One by land, two by sky. Look to the heptagon for it is there. Seven times around go the three of you and may your reward be just and true.

Location of the supernatural hole in the ground......
Just thought you might find this interesting.
In April of 1998, I accompanied my boyfriend, who is a parapsychologist, on one of his field studies. We found ourselves northwest of Des Moines, in a town called, Titonka, Iowa. From Des Moines we took the 35 North to the 18 West. It took us about 2 hours to get to Titonka. Its a very small out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere type of town. It was very children-of-the- corn, if that makes any sense at all. Town consists of about 500 people.
My boyfriend had been asked to come out and do a report on a supernatural hole in the ground that was troubling the locals. Once we arrived, he started interviewing the local, and they all said pretty much the same thing: strange noises can be heard emanating from the hole during certain times. Apparently it didn't happen very often, maybe once every few years. I guess it was consistent though, and when it would act up, it would act up for a couple weeks before going dormant again.
I helped my boyfriend conduct a bunch of tests to determine the size, length and content of the hole, but we didn't gather too much evidence. His sonar device couldn't pick up a reading. He would lower it down into the hole about 50 feet and the only thing the sonar bounced off of was the top of the hole. His sonar device could determine the length or the width as long as it was under 1500 meters. If the measurement is more than 1500 meters, it wouldn't be able to use echo-location and give a proper read. His machine didn't read anything, which tells you the hole was deeper than 1500 meters, and wider than 1500 meters in any given direction. He never did get a proper read on the depth of the hole, his instruments only measure up to 1500 feet. He sent down a couple different cameras, but after about 50 feet, they kept shutting themselves off. He did some decibel readings as well, and he kept picking up a weird frequency that was audible to the dogs in town.
We heard the noises mostly at night. It was a weird noise that kind of resembled a whimpering dog at times, and others it resembled an angry monster dog. I was too afraid to actually accompany my boyfriend to the area while he was getting close up recordings of the sounds.
Whatever is in that hole is equally as intriguing as the hole itself. I bet what my boyfriend did his field study on was the basis for this story in the movie.
