    It may imply going from a big city or a big place to a least known place like entering a rabbit hole.

    As another person wrote, from "Alice in Wonderland". It means to fall into some confusing and senseless situation that takes a long time (maybe forever) to get out of.

    From Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland series of books.  She fell down into a rabbit hole in the novel and met all kinds of strange creatures in all kinds of strange scenarios.  The rabbit who was always late, the mad hatter who was...well...mad, the Queen of Hearts who liked to behead people, and so on.  The rabbit hole was actually wacky and colorful, but never dark.

    Yes, it is dark, like a black hole, meaning no bottom in sight.
