Susan and her sons Dane and Lucas Thompson move from Brooklyn to Bensonville, in the countryside. Dane is upset with the constant changes of address and the family has lived in many cities. Lucas and Dane befriend their next door neighbor, the gorgeous Julie and the brothers find a bottomless hole in the basement of their house locked with several padlocks. They take the locks off and soon they are haunted by their darkest fears. Further, they believe that the hole might be a gateway to hell.Written by

The film never received a release in the United States because all the screens were dominated by blockbuster 3D releases. A smaller film with an unknown cast simply couldn't get a foothold. See more »
When Julie is reading her book in bed, the power briefly goes out, along with her music. However, when she falls off her bed, you can briefly catch a glimpse of her iPod, which does not require a wall outlet to function and thus, should not have stopped playing music when the power went down.
Clearly the Evil affects all Electrical appliances/equipment so the power going off on her iPod would be perfectly acceptable. See more »
We just want to know if you built the hole, and what it's about.
Nobody built the hole! The hole has been there since the world's first scream.

Much better then expected. Still geared toward teens but reminded me a lot of "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark". Entertaining. I say B
"You've got a gateway to hell under your house and that's really cool." Susan (Polo) and her sons Dane (Massoglia) & Lucas (Gamble) have just moved into a new house. Dane is upset about having to move again and that isn't helping to make the move easy. When he meets the girl next door he finally has a friend and they start to explore the house. When the stumble upon a door in the floor of their basement then unknowingly open a gateway to hell and become haunted by their darkest fears. Going in I honestly expected this to be a cheesy teen-ager type horror. While it was geared toward teens this movie was actually not bad at all. This is a horror movie but it's done by the same director of the "Gremlins" movies so it's not scary scary but it is very entertaining and fast paced. There are quite a bit of disturbing scenes and images in this but nothing that will keep you up with nightmares so that is always good. The movie was made a few years ago and just now getting released but I would compare this to "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" in terms of plot and idea. If you liked that movie you will like this one too. I enjoyed it. Overall, an entertaining and a little creepy movie that was much better then I expected. I give it a B+.
