“Demons aren’t gonna ring the doorbell!”
Little kids battled little monsters in director Tibor Takacs’ 1987 creature feature The Gate, which we’ve just learned will finally arrive on Blu-ray come February 28th, 2017. The release is the latest under Lionsgate’s recently relaunched Vestron Video banner; the film joins other cult faves already in the series such as Chopping Mall, Blood Diner, and Return of the Living Dead 3.
As a kid, I remember catching parts of The Gate on TV over the course of several years, and I never knew what the title of the film actually was… I just knew that I totally loved it. It wasn’t until years later that I found a VHS copy (from Vestron!) at my local Blockbuster and I was finally able to put a title to the movie. Needless to say, this Blu-ray is one I can’t wait to get my hands on.
In The Gate, which starred a young Stephen Dorff:
After an old tree is removed from the ground, three young children accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from the hole in a suburban backyard. 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.
The Blu-ray will be packed with new features, and Coming Soon got the full scoop…
