Update: DVD cover art below. If only Lionsgate could bring us Blu-rays, they’d be on my best friend list. Today Lionsgate Home Entertainment hit us up with the breaking news that The Gate debuts in a Special Edition DVD on October 6 from Lionsgate. Starring Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies), Kelly Rowan (TV’s “The O.C.”) and Jennifer Irwin (HBO’s “Eastbound & Down”), the film is a terrifying tale about three children who accidently open a gate to hell which releases demons from an ancient civilization. The Gate: Monstrous Special Edition is loaded with new special features, including audio commentary with the director, interviews with the cast and crew, a stills gallery and the original theatrical trailer.
They are here and they want to meet the neighbors. After an old tree is removed from the ground, three teenagers come across a special rock with a beautiful crystalline center in their backyard. The rock enthralls them and they dig up the family’s lawn in a search for more of the precious stones. However, instead of stones, they find the Gate: a hidden underground chamber that holds the secret of centuries and the vengeance of eternity. Their actions inadvertently liberate a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from the hole and what follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the three kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that is literally taking over the Earth.
Pricing: DVD $19.98
