While exploring the neighboring woods, 13-year-old John (Charlie Shotwell) discovers an unfinished bunker—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) and drags their unconscious bodies into the bunker, where he holds them captive. As they anxiously wait for John to free them from the hole, the boy returns home, where he can finally do what he wants. [Sundance]

"Quakes with intrigue and dread."

— Natalia Winkelman, The Daily Beast

"A disturbing psychological coming-of-age thriller."

— David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"Director Pascual Sisto's gaze drifts languidly across the scenery, building the slow, quiet terror of the dreaded certainty of an awful situation."

— Sheri Flanders, Chicago Reader

"Directed by visual artist Pascual Sisto and featuring great performances from all of its leads, John and the Hole is a strange and darkly fun little thriller."

— Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

"A critique of affluent boredom, an exploration of adolescent anguish, a parenting lesson by way of Yorgos Lanthimos-designed with a disquieting sense of minimalism, John and the Hole is all of these things."

— Tomris Laffly, Harper's Bazaar

"It’s calculated and precise and meticulously constructed in a way that will be of considerable interest to audiences who appreciate stories that unsettle, and those who recognize the precision of Sisto’s approach."

— Peter Debruge, Variety
