People are calling Netflix's 'Hole In The Ground' the best horror movie of 2019

Christmas is almost upon us, and we all know that one of the best things to do when you've got time off work and you've stuffed yourself with turkey and mulled wine is to start watching some movies.

But if you're a real scrooge and you don't fancy watching It's A Wonderful Life or Love Actually for the millionth time, then maybe you'd rather watch something a little bit more creepy and disturbing instead.

Take a look at the chilling trailer for Hole In The Ground below: 

If that's the case, then we have the perfect movie for you: an Irish horror film which has just dropped on Netflix, which some people are calling the scariest movie of 2019.

This little known thriller was directed by Lee Cronin, based on a screenplay by Cronin and Stephen Shields, and stars Seána Kerslake, James Cosmo, Kati Outinen, Simone Kirby, Steve Wall, and James Quinn Markey.

The movie originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on 25 January 2019 and picked up plenty of rave reviews from critics at the time. But now's dropping on the world's most popular streaming platform for the masses to enjoy.

The movie's plot concerns a young single mother named Sarah, who moves to the Irish countryside to start a new life in a rented house next to a thick old forest. However, with Sarah surrounded by strange locals in an unfamiliar area, things soon take a turn for the sinister.

Her son, Christopher, goes missing in the forest one day and comes into contact with a mysterious sinkhole deep in the woods. Sarah eventually finds him, but the boy begins to exhibit strange behavior, such as eating spiders and taunting her.

Sarah's disturbed neighbor seems to sense that Christopher is not what he seems. But as Sarah struggles to unravel the mystery surrounding her strange new home, she learns that it may already be too late to save her child.

But this isn't the only scary movie to debut on Netflix lately. Check out this article all about the new Stephen King movie In The Tall Grass, which has totally divided viewers.
