Bury the hole, 6 November 2004
Author: George Parker from Orange County, CA USA

In "The Hole", four Brit coeds, two males and two females, spend a weekend in an abandoned WWII bomb shelter, the hole, with disastrous results. This lame thriller would have us believe that they all decided to camp in the dank climes of the barren underground concrete bunker...yeah, right. However, as the plot thickens we're made aware of personal issues which yield horrific consequences played out in several different scenarios. The big questions is, which scenario is correct or, in other words, whodunnit? A marginally engrossing and obviously contrived concoction full of after-thought filler, this flick keeps replaying the "hole" scenarios an nauseam with increasing bellicosity and blood. Fodder for the young adult crowd. (C+)
