Beyond the Gates
Directed by Jackson Stewart
‘80s VHS nostalgia becomes deadly in this clever chiller about two brothers who reunite when their father vanishes. While cleaning out pop’s video store, Gordon and John find a VHS game featuring a creepy hostess (cult icon Barbara Crampton) who reveals that dad is trapped inside. The siblings’ disbelief turns to horror when they learn that in order to free dad, they’ll have to sacrifice some of their loved ones. Tailor made for fans of Stuart Gordon and Brian Yuzna’s films, Jackson Stewart’s ghoulish gem is well on its way to becoming a cult classic itself. A sequel is already in the works... Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.
Two brothers find a mysterious VHS board game that leads them into a demonic realm.
Cast: Barbara Crampton. Graham Skipper, Chase Williamson, Brea Grant
Crappy. The execution in terms of the special effects, production design etc were reasonably well done but it suffers from a poor script, by the numbers characters, by the numbers blocking / cinematography etc, mediocre acting, ambiguous stakes. Very 'Meh'.
As others have said, a good concept poorly executed. Disappointing.
Unoriginal and badly acted
Babs saves the day
Buzzing low budge gem. Barbara Crampton plays an amazing role in this as the gamekeeper and I was drawn in from start to finish. Awesome concept, cool delivery, would definitely recommend 💀❤️💀❤️💀❤️💀
