Though the FX and photography are competent for a film of this scale, the screenwriters appear to have put much less effort into dialogue and pacing.
In a cardinal sin of genre filmmaking, [Clay] Staub also lets his audience figure out the twists before his characters do, all while he overexplains the plot
The dialogue in "Devil's Gate" is mostly expository, and while the cast does its best, the characters feel more like sketchy outlines than real people.
This is one of those horror movies that want to have it every way possible. It's not good, but it could pass muster among midnight-movie enthusiasts or curious stoners.
Devil's Gate plays something like a kludgy, aimless episode of The X-Files, one with too many half-baked ideas and the running time to indulge them all.
What's frustrating is how Devil's Gate just grazes greatness in a couple areas, missing its mark.
I really dug the first two-thirds of director and co-writer Clay Staub's Devil's Gate, the initial setup and the kinetically enthralling second act bolting me forward in my seat...
A mixed bag of interesting ideas are transformed into a pile of garbage in this laughable and forgettable movie.
Devil's Gate remains well ahead of the pack when it comes to horror films with similarly restricted budgets.
A small-town missing persons case leads to genre miscegeny... repeatedly wrong-foot[s] even the savviest of viewers with its misdirections
A very weak high concept thriller that gets worse the further it goes into its god awful premise.
An irreverent mix of genres taken completely seriously but with no small amount of fun, Devil's Gate wears its script's stupidity on its sleeve and allows its creature effects and committed cast to carry it throughout.
