Vestron Video Bringing ‘The Gate’ To Blu-ray For the First Time

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…

    MY GOD I love Vestron! I can’t wait to see what they dig up and release next.

    I loved this movie as a kid, this is the sort of horror film logic that a kid would have and I think that’s what adds to the charm.

    What I’d really like to see is the movie available on streaming. I don’t really buy DVDs anymore and am not going to invest in a new format when most of what I want to see doesn’t require a disk or player to see.
