Storyline

Legend has it that some of the oldest surviving homeless communities in New York City have been hidden from the public view for decades in the underground tunnels of Manhattan. Many homeless dwell in continual darkness along tunnels miles long and yet manage to survive. What happens to someone who lives in such a dark and dreary dwelling? Well, Reporter Susan Pei plans to find out with the help of her friend and cameraman, Nick Murphy. As she ventures to investigate this story to impress her boss, she enlists the assistance of Tom Stranton, a local transit tunnel expert she finds on the internet. However, after he makes a miscalculation they find themselves lost underneath one of the biggest cities in the world. As they try to find a way out, they are in a terrifying struggle with the dark, with themselves and with mysterious underground dwellers that do not want them there. Written by Richard Mauro <richfilm@yahoo.com>

Relentlessly creepy; good gooey atmosphere
19 February 2004 | by mark-506See all my reviews

I won't summarize "Mole" here, as the other reviewers have already done a pretty good job. I will just share my impressions: though "Blair Witch" comparisons may be inevitable, they only skim the surface. "Mole" is far more tense, with a fully fleshed-out storyline and well-developed characters whose ambiguity grows exponentially as the story's screws tighten on them. And you just can't get over the rawness of the look, so central to the film's effectiveness. It's obvious that Mauro, Savini and their cast & crew really ARE down in the subterranean tunnels of New York, and it's terrifying enough just imagining them all there, in pitch dark, with rats and God knows what else crawling all over them, just to get this film made. This you-are-there creepiness fills every frame and enriches each performance, especially Sam Tsao's. She comes across at first as a bit stiff, but eventually sinks her teeth into a role that is as dark and disturbing as the setting and as "Mole" is itself. An honesty in the storytelling and no B.S. attitude to the dialogue and camerawork also help make this film well worth tracking down.
