Go “Beyond the Gates” With this Trailer From IFC Midnight

In Trailers by Bub Smith3 Comments

I know I should be tired of “throwback” horror flicks, but I ain’t! I am tired of the fake ‘grindhouse’ movies Tarantino and Rodriguez made popular a few years back (We get it! You got After Effects and can make the flick aged and damaged…) , but as far as new genre flicks “inspired” by horror flicks from the 70s/80s I am all in. Case in point: Jackson Stewarts’ Beyond the Gate. From the trailer below Beyond the Gates is a love letter to the neon soaked, blood splattered horror flicks from the 80’s. Starring Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End) and Graham Skipper (Mind’s Eye) BtG’s looks like a slice of horror goodness that I am excited for. If you’re like me check this trailer out and get ready for Dec 9th when IFC Midnight releases the flick on VOD and select theatres.

“A retro-cool blast from the day-glo 1980s past, Beyond the Gates zaps viewers back to a time when VHS ruled, video stores were meccas for horror fans, and shocks came with a healthy dose of schlock. In the wake of their father’s mysterious disappearance, two estranged brothers—responsible Gordon (Graham Skipper) and reckless John (Chase Williamson)—reunite to sift through the contents of his stubbornly anachronistic VHS rental store. Among the inventory, they discover an interactive VCR board game, which their father viewed just before he vanished. Intrigued, the boys pop in the tape, press play, and soon discover that, far from an ordinary game, the video is a portal to a nightmarish alternate reality overseen by a sinister hostess (cult horror icon Barbara Crampton) and that in order to save their father’s soul, they must play by her rules. Bursting with eye-popping practical effects, an unsettling synth score, and wicked black humor, Beyond the Gates puts a fresh spin on old-school terror.”
