The Hole

Synopsis: Susan and her sons Dane and Lucas Thompson move from Brooklyn to Bensonville, in the countryside. Dane is upset with the constant changes of address and the family has lived in many cities. Lucas and Dane befriend their next door neighbor, the gorgeous Julie and the brothers find a bottomless hole in the basement of their house locked with several padlocks. They take the locks off and soon they are haunted by their darkest fears. Further, they believe that the hole might be a gateway to hell.

Stinks.

Mom, Dane just said stinks.

Don't say stink Dane.

I thought you said that this wasn't that different

from the last place?

It will be! Once we get our stuff moved in.

Yeah except for the 2,000 mile walk

to go hang out with my friends.

You will make new friends.

Better friends.

Got the biggest room.

Well! This was nice of someone.

Oh that's so sweet.

Did Aunt Bee bake us a pie?

This place sux (sucks).

Hey, There's a basket in the street.

Let's go play.

Dane.

What the hell's your problem?

Let's go play!

Go have fun.

Jerk.

Hi, I'll play with you honey.

You know? Forget it.

This is a change for Lucas too okay?

- Are you joking me?

- No, I'm not.

All you have to do is put him

in his room and put on cartoons.

And he's fine.

And perhaps spend a little bit more

time with him. What do you say?

Any more time and I...

I'll probably strangle him.

What happen to the old Dane, I used

to know that would

draw rainbows and people

with smiley faces on them?

I grew up.

Did ya?

But please do not to take

this out on Lucas, okay?

It is not his fault that

we had to move.

I had to do it.

I could not take a chance.

I am sorry about your friends.

I'm sorry about having to move again.

but I would really like

this to workout.

I would like you to help me make it work.

It means no more fighting

no more trouble at school.

I need you to be better then

the things you have seen.

What's that supposed to mean?

It means, I would like us

to be happy. Okay?

We could all use a little bit

more happy in our lives.

See this... I'm very happy.

I am.

That's great...

It's not too bad...

We're make it work?

There's another box in the back of the truck.

Honey, if you would get it please?

This one?

- Yeah. That's good.

Careful.

Mom!

Dane why did you bring this?

To help Lucas build his Bozo phobia.

Shut up God.

- Mom, Lucas just said, "Shut up."

Do the two of you realise that you're embarrassing

yourselves in front of our new neighbour?

Better than Mr. Hide walking in

Clark Street in boxers. Doesn't it?

Hey, Dane! Where do you want me to put

your Jonah's record CD's?

Oooh... You're into such trouble.

What new?

That goes in the basement, sweetie!

Thanks!

- Okay!

- Why do you baby him so much?

- Why? You jealous?

You okay, kid?

- Yeah...

Just go talk to him.

He said he was sorry.

I'm so done with him.

You've been saying that since the fifth grade.

- I know right.

Okay you guys, call me if there's any problems.

but I don't want any problems.

So please don't call me.

I need this stuff to go well.

Are we cool?

Promise me the both of you.

Promise.

Scout's honor.

Dane... I hate to tell you this

but you were never a scout. My friend.

Actually I thought about once because of the cookies.

- Because a girl scouts losing.

I love you.

Don't pester your brother, okay?

- Good luck, Mom.

- Thank you.

And guys! Do things together. Two of you.

Please ... Dane.

See you guys later!

Let's go throw.

I'm busy.

Nothing.

Go away.

C'mon!

You can stare at her outside. Okay!

I said I'm busy.

Now get outta here. I don't feel like it.

You never feel like it.

No. No.

I will kill you.

Hello!

New neighbors.

Hi, Lucas.
