The Hole in the Ground (2019, D: Cronin) S: Kerslake, Markey, Kirby, Wall





Sarah and her young son Chris move to a new home in the Irish countryside, next to a forest that hides an enormous sinkhole. One night, Chris vanishes, and when he reappears, he seems unharmed and unchanged. But, as his behavior grows increasingly disturbing, Sarah begins to fear that the boy who has returned may not be her son at all.

From director Lee Cronin and starring Seána Kerslake, James Quinn Markey, Simone Kirby, and Steve Wall. The Hole in the Ground – Coming Soon.

It was OK. I rented it off Google Play. The ending blew really bad IMHO.
Spoiler:
she goes down in the hole to save her kid and they make it look like it is a really long hard journey. After she gets the kid she is able to get out no problem at all.
That is simplifying it quite a bit but I was really not happy with it.

It was just OK nothing to me that deserves all the praise it is getting. May be there was a hidden meaning I missed.
