More Info IMDb

Your parents always told you that playing heavy metal records would send you straight to hell. Well, guess what? They were right.

In this glorious 35mm screening of demonic-infused entertainment, a group of kids find a hole to hell in their backyard and, thanks to the help of heavy metal music, their house is crawling with all sorts of goblins, imps and zombies. When a new eye growing out of the palm of your hands is the least of your worries, you know your having a pretty crappy day. In the film that introduced the world to baby-faced Stephen Dorff (future enemy of Daywalkers everywhere), THE GATE pits a group of children against the forces of evil.

Can you believe this insane tribute to '80s creature feature excess was marketed as a kids' movie?
