Box set containing three popular thrillers. In 'The Hole' (2001), school nerd Martyn (Daniel Brocklebank) helps four school friends, Liz (Thora Birch), Mike (Desmond Harrington), Geoff (Laurence Fox) and Frankie (Keira Knightley) avoid a school field trip to Wales by taking them to an old underground bunker. Together the teenagers party non-stop for three days in their sound-proof shelter, but when Martyn doesn't return to let them out, the party atmosphere changes quickly into a living nightmare. Liz is found a few days later walking towards the school, covered in blood and traumatised. She is taken to a police psychologist where she tells her story; but when Martyn is later picked up, he gives a very different account. 'The Blair Witch Project' (1998) is set in Burkittsville in 1994. Three students - Heather (Heather Donahue), Josh (Joshua Leonard) and Michael (Michael Williams) - head into the woods to investigate the local legend of the Blair Witch, a spirit blamed for the deaths of various children. However, soon after setting out, the trio run into trouble. In 'The Good Son' (1993), young Mark Evans (Elijah Wood) is naturally devastated by the loss of his mother, and in a bid to help him overcome his bereavement, he is sent to stay with his cousin Henry (Macaulay Culkin). However, Mark soon realises that Henry is not like normal children and that his idea of fun is both evil and deadly. Mark then finds himself the target of psychological torture, as he becomes the prey in a wicked game of cat and mouse.
