You can try to educate your kid as you should, send them in a good school, in short, do your best to make them the perfect dynamic executive when they are 20 years old, but you cannot avoid bad company: Glen is a nice kid who only thinks about gently sending explosive rockets, but his friend Terry wonders in his leather jacket, has shaggy hair and is a fan of rock music (ew): his most recent fad is a group named Sacrifix whose lyrics drowned in the rhythm are just long incantatory loggorrhoeas about devils and evil forces. And now…he has the crazy idea of thinking he is a darkness priest and reading Sacrifix’s lyrics above a well at the end of Glen’s garden. Here is a game that should not be harmful. But now, some strange vapours come from the hole! How alarming!
This is enough for the parents to close the hole with a door tied up in the ground, but not enough to worry them genuinely: they go away, leaving the house under the responsibility of the kids. It’s the perfect time to let the underworld rage…
The Gate, directed by Tibor TAKACS, is starring three young actors, among which one starts to become a real star in the cinema industry, although his young age: Louis TRIFF who showed his cheerful personality in The Lost Boys, Stand By Me and The Goonies…
But the real stars of the movie are the special effects, under the responsibility of Randall William COOK (Ghostbusters, The Thing, Poltergeist III), Craig REARDON (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Poltergeist I) and Bill TAYLOR (Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, Dune). The Gate’s special effects are “not only of an exceptional quality, but they are also particularly new: the models, the animation, the visual effects are of a rare perfection and a veritable delight.” – Bertrand BORIE.
