Demons, heavy metal and teenage angst? I'm there. Still after almost 30 years, this small movie feels as genuine as it was back in 1987. [Full review in Spanish].

Essentially, The Gate is a horror version of Home Alone, and with the addition of Al's bratty friends (one of whom is played by The OC's Kelly Rowan), there's a nice amount of humour to balance out the scares.

Given the film's $2.5m budget it's incredible what was achieved here.

The Gate is a MUST HAVE movie for all horror fans and this special edition is absolutely worth the meager sixteen bucks!

I saw this movie in the theater in 1987 and thought it was pretty bad back then; it's still pretty bad, but the visual effects hold up pretty well.

It is not a great horror film, but you never get the urge to turn it off, either.
