Pascual Sisto’s JOHN AND THE HOLE Gets a Trailer

IFC has released a trailer for the upcoming thriller John and the Hole from director Pascual Sisto. This very disturbing looking title involves a 13 year-old kid who discovers an unfinished bunker in the woods and decides to drug and throw his parents and older sister into it.

John and the Hole stars Charlie Shotwell, Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Ehle, and Taissa Farmiga and opens in theaters and on VOD platforms August 6th.


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.
