My thoughts… The Black Hole is a cool little Twilight Zone-esque short film with the kind of ironic ending that the late great Rod Serling would’ve loved! I think it would be even cooler if it was filmed in B&W! Watch an unnecessary remake (here) if you like. OK, it’s a triangle not a circle but what’s with the safe full of half-eaten apples? I don’t get it. Watch another short film inspired by The Black Hole (here). Or just stick with the excellent original!
