Dane is sullen over having to move – once again, this time from Brooklyn – to a new town – small! – and takes it out on his little brother Lucas. His interest is caught by the neighbour girl Julie.
The three of them find a hole in the cellar floor. A seriously deep and bottomless hole. In the night something comes up out of the hole and scary things start happening.
Is this a kids’ movie? If I was a kid I’d be really scared. I’m not a kid and I’m scared anyway!
What a fortunate mistake. A good scary movie. The three kids are believable and likeable. The three young actors are appealing, especially Gamble as Lucas. I hope to see them in other films.
