(1966, Arch Oboler) Bad enough that an expecting couple have to force land next to a remote town full of monotonic robotic denizens – this giant plastic bubble won’t let them get out. Best 3-D movie from the auteur who started it all with Bwana Devil. DCP. Approx. 91 mins.

“Crystal clear 3-D effects… a rare visitation of old-school sci-fi.”
– The New York Times
(2009, Joe Dante) New town for kids Marco Massoglia, Nathan Gamble, except there’s those clown puppets appearing, the mysterious injured girl, and the menacing large man – connected to the seemingly bottomless hole behind the trapdoor in the basement. DCP. Approx. 92 mins.

“An impish horror-comedy about the macabre horror lurking behind the well-manicured lawns, picket fences, and stifling conformity of suburban life. It’s also a child’s-eye take on the haunted-portal subgenre that affords Dante his first opportunity to experiment with 3-D. Like earlier Dante classics The Gremlins and The Burbs, The Hole marries the fantastical, the horrific, and the mundane.”
