Dante Delivers 3-D with Depth


Tonally, director Joe Dante's latest horror film The Hole: 3-D has a lot in common with the kinds of movies he and Spielberg used to make in the 1980s. It's a suburban adventure involving a small cast of kids, and; as in Gremlins, Dante doesn't shy away from giving his family-friendly fare some bite. The Hole delivers true chills, which are made all the more effective by characters as fully developed as the superior 3D photography. Tonight, Dante receives a Lifetime Achievement Award from the St. Louis International Film Festival in conjunction with a screening of the The Hole: 3-D. In addition, Video Watchdog's Tim Lucas screens a reel of Dante's career highlights and interviews the director on stage. This celebration of Joe Dante's films takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the Hi-Pointe Theatre (1005 McCausland Avenue); admission is $10 to $12. Additional Dante screenings at the Hi-Pointe include a double feature of Gremlins and Gremlins 2 at 10 p.m. Saturday ($10 to $12 for the two-fer) and The Movie Orgy ($10 to $12) on Sunday at 11 a.m. For all the details visit,
