The Gate was recently reissued on DVD as a "monstrous special edition" and featured some rather bizarre cover art. It depicts Glen down in the hole with the minions, but Glen was never down in the hole, it was actually Terry and why did they draw him in cargo shorts with hiking sandals? Did the artist even watch the movie? On the plus side, it features a nice widescreen transfer and some interesti... read more

Movies I've Watched in 2024 (So Far) (165 movies items)

"Watched on: January 24th, 2024. It was great up until the "ending" which ended up being a false ending, so when I checked the time (assuming the movie was almost over at that point), it still had 30 minutes left and that's when I sighed and attempted to make it thru the rest of the film. Honestly, they could've done something better than just drag out the same scene (again) for another 30 minutes, it just felt ridiculously long and unwarranted.

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"A fun, but also really weird film, the small demon like creatures and the scene where one of the kid's parents show up, but turn out to be monsters, are just some of the odd things, that in this movie."
