One night, Sarah’s young son disappears into the woods behind their rural home. When he returns, he looks the same, but his behavior grows increasingly disturbing. Sarah begins to believe that the boy who returned may not be her son at all.

The Hole in the Ground is the feature length debut of Irish director Lee Cronin, who has seen success in European film festivals with his short Ghost Train. The film stars Seána Kerslake and James Quinn Markey as a mother and son duo who encounter a massive sinkhole near their new rural home. Threads of weird neighbors, paranormal disappearances, and single motherhood weave together in this upcoming horror/thriller. If it can hold its own among the films A24 has amassed (Hereditary, The Killing of a Sacred Deer), it is sure to be a complex and memorable story.
