Movie Info

The daughter (Abigail Wolcott) of the owner of a ghost-town tourist attraction was killed by strangers, and the owner bears a serious grudge to those who are his bread and butter. So much so, that when he runs across a crystal that revivifies corpses and turns them into monsters or worse, he uses it on his newly dead daughter. When she is revived, she looks normal, and is able to lure unsuspecting victims to the man's town where he can then chop them up. In this horror thriller, a group of college students on a lark come to the town with predictable results. Fortunately for the hero (Ron Palillo), the dead girl still has some human feelings left. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Hellgate

The so called ghost town of Hellgate is very flawed. Is it an amusement park ghost town that is haunted or is it an actual town that is haunted, or is it an amusement park ghost town that was not haunted before and then became haunted or is an actual town that was not haunted before and then became haunted? I have no freaking idea and neither will you!

Very odd and intriguing late 80's-early 90's straight to video movie that touts "From the special effects team from Hellraiser 2". The F/X are actually quite good and part of the films charm. If you are into 80s style gore movies you will love every second of this. I would not recommend watching this if you are a passing horror fan.

If a true hell gate is ever discovered it will undoubtedly require as a sacrifice repeated viewings of this horribly cheesy mishmash.
