The Hole (Latest Joe Dante film) (1/17/2011) BD/DVD



Joe Dante's film, done in 3D, filmed in 2009 independently, finally released in Cannes and other places in 2010, yet no US release as of yet, gets a DVD and BD release from E1 next month. Coming from E1, they usually put good extras on their discs, but most likely, BD will be Region B, but no extras or region confirmed so far.

Damn, I had no idea the guy was still making movies. Last I saw him direct anything, he was making that Looney Tunes movie with Brendan Frasier. Any word on how this movie is?

86% of critics say that it is a return-to-form for Joe Dante, making a scary childrens' film/

A Steelbook Blu-ray version is already available in Italy; it contains flat 2-D, active shutter Blu-ray 3-D and magenta/green anaglyph 3-D versions. It is Region coded B.

Agreed...I enjoyed it.

I watched this over the weekend (on Blu). It was alright. The three leads acting performances were probably the worst part of the film but nothing that took me out of it. It definitely had creepy parts that worked in the films favor. And it's always nice to see Dick Miller no matter how small the role is. I'd give it a 3 out of 5.

No commentary for this film as of now.
Thai DVD, barebones, HK BD and UK BD have no commentary either.

UK DVD review with an interlaced transfer....

I thought it was okay, too. I wish they had kept the finale

Spoiler:
in reality instead of the fantasy set they used. It sort of took me out of the movie. The clown and little girl creeped me out, though. They were the best parts.

Gremlins is still one of my all time favorites. I will check this out sometime.

I wonder if they'll do a 3D release as well. If it has more substantial extras, I'd love to upgrade from my UK copy.

It's one of the better shot (recent) native 3-D movies. I've never seen it flat, and have no desire to. I'll stick with my imported Blu-ray 3D.

If it weren't Region B, I'd be all over it.

Whoa, wait a minute. NoirFan, the one behind the MoC/Arrow threads etc, still not region free?! (I'm pretty sure I've commented this before...)

I have a region-free Blu-ray player, but not a region-free 3D Blu-ray player.
