I might be the opposite of most people who were disappointed by the movie after not having seen it in years. "I loved it as a kid," they say. Well, I saw it at the theater when I was a teenager, being seduced by the special-effects in the TV ads (it really looked cool, and the thought of a hole that leads to hell was awesome!), but I remember leaving the theater thinking: "Eh, it was okay."
But then all these years later I'm flipping through cable late one night and saw the movie playing on TNT or TBS or something like that. I watched it and actually LOVED it more this time around than at the theater.
I think nostalgia was a big factor. The movie oozes with 80's atmosphere, especially the girls and the little "party" they have at the house. The look of the movie is very 80's, and since I ache for those old days, I loved this movie. It's a cheesy little horror story, nothing too scary, nothing too demanding. It's great fun if you just allow yourself. Perfect for a Saturday night when nothing else good is on.
The DVD itself is bare bones. It looks good, a lot better than my VHS copy. It has no special features, no commentary...nothing at all. And worst of all, it's presented in full screen.
Full screen? What were they thinking? It's a horror movie, and all horror movie buffs love the theatrical aspect ratio. C'mon, horror movies should always be in widescreen on DVD!
But so what, it's still a lot of fun, and best of all the DVD is cheap. I bought it for like 6 bucks at BestBuy.

Format: DVD
The Gate turned out to be a fairly enjoyable film and definately is one of the more memorable horror films from the eighties. The story of the film is interesting enough : a lightnig strike in a kids backyard causes a gate to hell to open partially causing mysterious things to happen until it is opened fully. The effects in the film were pretty good (lots of claymation effects are used to create the spooky small demons and then the final big demon. For some reason old claymation effects like these still disturb me for some reason.) The movie is gorey in some parts but not so over the top to make you sick to your stomach. Some examples are faces melting things biting skin and dead animal ect. The acting could have been somewhat better but for the genre the kids do an alright job. As for scenes that make you jump there are a couple. The one involving the main characters friend in the closet was my favorite though I will not go into to much detail for those who have not seen it. The editing in the film was one of the negitive things about it. The movie seemed sort of choppy in some places. Also one scene in the film was really bad. This scene involved to girls who are sleeping over the night the demons make their first appearance. After there encounter with them some local teenage guys come over and they seem to forget there experience with demons from hell and go party with the guys. This to me made no sense at all. All in all the film is worth a watch or two late at night

No wide-screen and no frills, but it's there.
As for the movie, an 80's-rainy-day B-flavor child/fantasy/adventure/horror flick with some good special effects and a decent story for its time. Alot like "Demons" or any 80's horror/fantasy, but with a special panache because of the exceptional stop-action mini-monsters.
Watching it again after so many years was a bit of a disappointment. One could get away with starting the movie in the middle and missing nothing but cheesy 80's intro's to characters. For some reason though, I loved it in the 80's, so it was nice to see again and the monsters didn't disappoint. They are the creepiest of any horror movie.

The Gate is a fantastically frightening supernatural thriller that will have the kids hiding behind the sofa more than once. A worthless first half is thankfully redeemed by some very impressive special effects in the second half and a terrific sense of atmosphere endures throughout. An old film (circa 1986) but The Gate still holds up well and is worth a look. Of passing interest as Stephen Dorff's first film and one of the better creature features of the 1980's.

Cool as hell cheesy 80's film with some really awesome fx and stop animation monsters in the vain of "Demons", "House", "The Evil Dead series", "Critters", "trick or treat" or even "The Goonies". Young Stephen Dorff and his best friend accidentally open the gates of hell in their back yard and all hell breaks loose!! Now, their home is haunted by miniature ugly demons, zombies, monster, black magik, ghosts and Satan itself and the only way to stop evil from taking the world is by following the rules Metal!!!! the only way to save the world is by playing a satanic metal record backward and follow the rules. I first saw this movie almost 15 years ago, I was 12 and thought it was the coolest movie ever, now I'm 27 and some very cool memories were brought back...even dough it wasn't what I expected some very cool stuff still there. The Gate is not the best movie b-movie ever made, it's very far from it, but is not bad at all, I find it very cool and entertaining even if it has some very ugly and cheesy 80's fashion, dialogue and synth music, but what else could you expect from an 80's low budget B- movie. So give it a try and you will find a very entertaining flick with some very cool fx. Do not expect anything big, but for some great laugh and a good time sake, you should be very pleased.
