Book Cover of Hell Hole: The Official Screenplay The Hell Hole movie script was based on Hell Holes: What Lurks Below, the first book in my Hell Holes series of science fiction and horror novels. Note that it is Leland Jay Anderson’s creative re-imagining of the book rather than a faithful retelling of the original book. After Leland wrote the original script, I updated his script to produce the final version that you can now obtain as an ebook:
