The Hole is an eerie, fear-jerking story about two brothers who move to Bensonville from New York City with their mother and uncover something in their house they weren’t quite ready for. Dane is the oldest brother, and moving from such an area as New York City to the quiet, little town of Bensonville starts to take its toll on him. He just slumps around the house in a bad mood, until he learns of the young girl next door. Dane’s younger brother, Lucas, keeps wanting to spend time with his brother, not knowing any other kids in town and with mother always off at work, but Dane wants no part in it. So Lucas decides to mess with his brother by going into the backyard and talking to Julie, the girl next door that Dane’s been admiring from his window. That leads to Dane and Julie meeting finally, but now Dane is so involved in Julie, he’s really ignoring Lucas. So Lucas goes exploring in his new house while no one’s around. He wonders down to the basement and stumbles across a heavily locked door. He tells Dane about it, and they go and unlock the door. Under the door is an endless hole, but after a while they begin to see that it is not just an endless hole. When they try lowering a flashlight down the hole, it is consumed by the darkness, and all they get back is the rope they lowered it down with. They bring Julie in on their new secret and learn that the darkness is coming after them, feeding off fear. Dane’s fear was his father, Lucas’s fear is clowns, and Julie’s fear is even deeper than that
