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
Not the worst I've seen, but such a thing storyline. Could have been a 15-minute short. So many plot holes left unexplained!
Poorly made cheap horror. but I've seen worse. Not recommended. 2 out of 5
Brilliant concept, terrible execution. Took way to long to get into the game portion and it only lasted a few minutes. Exposition was overdrawn and a bit on the ‘meh’ side. However, Barbara Crampton is still foxy which is great.
Quite an awful film. Acting shocking, not in a good way. I had no empathy for the Characters and the ending was predictable.
It was okay it just go kind of remind me of the 80s vibe and the Jumanji horror vibe What I didn’t really like so it just dragged on the beginning of the game but good acting I suppose but I suppose they could’ve been room for improvement in this movie.
