Where to Watch It: Amazon
Why You Should Watch It: Slow-burn that doesn’t pay off–that’s what this movie is.
The Hole in The Ground has a premise that we’ve heard of a thousand times. Possessed child and a mother struggling to save him. If done well, it could be a remarkable horror flick.
Unfortunately, that is not the case here.
The Hole in the Ground sets up a great plot that never pays off. What starts out as a promising prelude ends as a disappointment. The acting of the main lead falls flat, the horrors aren’t horrifying enough, to many things are left unresolved and unsolved. When it comes to horror, we’ve seen better.
Escape Room (2019)
Why You Should Watch It: More of a thriller than a horror, Escape Room has quite an interesting premise. Six people enter a competition in an escape room, only to realize that there is something much more sinister at play.
Trying to piece all the clues together that would help them escape the room is the best part of the movie. The characters figuring things out is interesting, and horrifying, at times. But what takes away from the movie is the plot development, terrible script and the characters themselves. You won’t find yourself attached to them in any way. Treated as sacrificial lambs, not all of them are crafted to seem human or logical.
Nonetheless, if you’re into screaming at the screen in frustration and watching people die for a particular reason, this is the movie you can watch with a group of friends.
