The Hole In 3D


Dark menace manifesting in dull suburbia? Check.
Diminutive terror running round cackling and throwing things? Check.
Liberal sprayings of obscure film references throughout? Check.
Dick Miller in the middle looking bewildered? Check.
Ah, that'll be a complete return to form for Joe Dante then.

  1. I'm pretty sure Dick Miller died about five years ago. I remember reading his obituary! I do sometimes dream about odd things though. Usually famous people dying.

  2. I've never heard of Dick Miller or Joe Dante. Should I be concerned about this?

  3. When Dick Miller dies, Joe Dante will have to stop making films.

  4. Ed, you must know Joe Dante. Gremlins! Or, more precisely, fucking Gremlins!

  5. Oh right! I didn't know he directed Gremlins though. Gremlins is one of those films I have in my collection without knowing who the director is cos I assume it's a one-off and the director got lucky. Guess I was wrong in this case.

  6. Sounds like you're not a fan of Gremlins anyway eh Joe?

  7. I used the term "fucking" purely for emphasis - no value judgement(possibly Scottish usage?)

    Gremlins, of course, rocks. I also loved Gremlins 2 but I don't know how that's fared over the years. But, having checked IMDB, he's not done a hell of a lot else. Matinee was good.

  8. I too love Gremlins (who doesn't) but I watched Gremlins 2 recently and thought it was a bit shite. Might have to look up this 3D Hole tho.
