Fear Friday ~ That Sounds Like Fun???
Welcome all to another Fear Friday at the Lounge. Tonight's selection is a lesser known movie from the early 2000's. A fun mind teaser with lots of twisty twists. Give it a shot and have fun trying to figure it out. Enjoy!
Every Friday at the Laughing Vixen Lounge Blog is Fear Friday. Fear Fridays are a celebration of all films spooky. Horror is a very broad genre and the Lounge loves it all. Each Friday you will find a review of a different film. These can range from Classic Horror (black and white and cheesy), Thrillers (suspense, jumps and a good mystery), outright Horror (chop chop, slash slash, die die) and anything else in between.
So pop some popcorn, kill the lights and enjoy tonight's selection. And please, share your comments on the film. Bad or good let me know what you thought of it. And now, my little ghouls and dolls, the Laughing Vixen Lounge Blog is proud to present this week's film.
Fear Friday - The Hole
Tagline - Once you get in, you can't get out.
Desperate To Get In. Dying To Get Out.
School is out, Terror has begun.
Directed by Nick Hamm (Godsend) and released on April 20, 2001 by Impact Pictures (Rated R). Four teenagers, at a British private school, decide to skip the school field trip and spend the weekend in an old abandoned war bunker. Hmmmmm... that sounds like... fun? But what happens when their friend does not return to unlock the door and let them out? Ooops!
When I watched this movie I was not expecting much but it ended up a pleasant surprise. It started out and before long I thought I had it all figured out. Ha! Not so quickly! This movie was a real surprise. I found it interesting to watch the story unfold through a series of flashbacks. But be careful. Not all is as it first appears.
Not real gory or frightening but creepy and fun to follow. It was a straight to DVD here in the states but opened in the theater in other countries. Go find it and give it a try. Let me know what you thought.
Take a look at the original trailer.
Some trivia about the movie.
1. The first significant film role for Keira Knightley.
2. Thora Birch was paid a highly publicized seven-figure salary, due to her recent acclaimed appearance in American Beauty.
3. Guy Burt wrote the novel the film is based upon at the age of 18, not long after he left school.
4. Nick Hamm wanted to make the film seven years before he actually did.
