added: Mon, Jan 28th '19

From A24, the studio that brought you "Hereditary" and "The Witch," comes a new hair-raising horror movie about a young Irish mother who is convinced her son is an imposter.

Check out the new official U.S. trailer for "The Hole in the Ground," a supernatural-tinged Irish chiller from up-and-coming horror filmmaker Lee Cronin, who is making his feature debut, following his award-winning short "Ghost Train."

Starring Seana Kerslake (Can't Cope Won't Cope) and James Quinn Markey (TV's Vikings), the film, which just premiered this past weekend at Sundance's Midnight, follows a young single mother (Kerslake) as she moves her son (Markey) to a small rural town in Ireland, only to later discover a giant mysterious sinkhole located in the middle of a nearby forest.

When her son runs off one day and goes missing for a few hours, he is eventually found near the sinkhole. After returning home, the young mother can't help but to believe something is horribly wrong with her son as he is not acting like himself. Is he an imposter, or is she just losing her mind?

The cast also includes James Cosmo (Braveheart), Kati Outinen (Le Havre), and Simone Kirby (Artemis Fowl).

"The Hole in the Ground" will be released January 31st exclusively on DirecTV. It will then open theatrically in the U.S. and the U.K. on March 1st. Watch the trailer, above.

Trying to escape her broken past, Sarah O'Neill (Seana Kerslake) is building a new life on the fringes of a backwood rural town with her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey). A terrifying encounter with a mysterious neighbor shatters her fragile security, throwing Sarah into a spiraling nightmare of paranoia and mistrust, as she tries to uncover if the disturbing changes in her little boy are connected to an ominous sinkhole buried deep in the forest that borders their home.
