IFC Films has released a new trailer for the psychological thriller John and the Hole. Directed by Pascual Sisto, the film follows 13-year-old John as he explore his newfound independence after he drugs his family and holds them captive in an unfinished bunker in the neighbouring woods; watch it here…
In this enigmatic and unsettling meditation on adolescent angst, 13-year-old John (Charlie Shotwell) discovers an unfinished bunker while exploring the neighboring woods—a deep hole in the ground. Seemingly without provocation, he drugs his affluent parents (Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Ehle) and older sister (Taissa Farmiga), holding them captive within the bunker. As they anxiously wait for John to free them from the hole, the boy returns home, where he can finally enjoy and explore a newfound independence.
John and the Hole stars Charlie Shotwell, Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Ehle, and Taissa Farmiga.
John and the Hole arrives in cinemas and on VOD on August 6th.
