The Late Show!

Pascual Sisto’s debut coming-of-age psychological thriller (shot in Lexington and Lincoln, MA) revolves around John, a disaffected tween, who keeps his family hostage in a hole in the ground. Darkly funny and deeply unsettling, the family comes up with inventive ways to attempt escape while John voyages into adulthood.

“A twisted nightmare that raises some unsettling scenarios, John and the Hole is darkly intense and seductively dangerous.” – Kat Hughes, The Hollywood News
