You can um and ah about what to order for your viewing pleasure this Christmas, but there really is only one list – and we’ve got it. You can thank us later, for now; grab a fresh piece of paper, get your stocking ready and pray you’ve been good this year. Santa is on red-alert for the ultimate Christmas wish-list.
A welcome return from director Joe Dante, The Hole is another fine contribution to the ‘family horror’ genre that helped make his name. Providing both laughs and scares, it credits its child viewers with an ability that too many kids films lack; the intelligence to be treated like adults. Bringing the darkness, but keeping things light, it will entertain both youngsters and grown-ups alike. And it all comes with the added benefit of 3D. So, go on – have a little fun and face your biggest fears.
