"Hellgate" is a ghost story with an above-average cast. On a visit to Bangkok, American Jeff (Cary Elwes, "The Princess Bride"), his Thai wife, Sua, and their son, Kyle, are hit by a truck as they drive to the home of Sua's father. Jeff awakens from a coma six weeks later and learns that Sua and Kyle did not survive. He also discovers that he can see the spectres of people who have died horribly.
The plot is hardly original: a human dares to infiltrate the world of the supernatural knowing his life is on the line. Ghosts have not proven to be the most frightening of supernatural entities, however. The creatures are creatively horrible, but that's about it. Elwes walks through the script, offering an uninspired performance, hardly masking his disdain for the material. William Hurt as a spiritual advisor, however, gives it his all and dominates the final third of the movie.
The only bonus extra on this DVD release is a theatrical trailer.
