had promise but not really a horror. more of a journey for one dude trying to get rid of his 'visions'. Acting was under anything good and im surprised really to see William Hurt in a movie like this, even thouh its clear he isnt really giving to shits for his role. watch if ya like but its not that great.
After a fatal car accident a man realizes that his soul, separated from his body, is hanging out at the gates of hell and he only has two days to get it back. Horror movies come up with the most ridiculous rules: "They can't eat after midnight," "You must be looking in a mirror," "Don't go to Camp Crystal Lake." And in each film there's always some mystical old woman who happens to know all this shit. But the concept behind this film might be the most laughable. After about forty-five minutes of characters piling bullshit rule upon mystical bullshit rule, I lost the ability to keep all the bullshit straight. The film gets some cheap thrills from scary, gory corpses reaching out at the characters like spooky, pimple-ridden high school students who get paid minimum wage to work at a haunted house. William Hurt is the reason I saw this film. He's not horrible, but it's definitely not a representative performance. Most of the time when he intends to look hurt and tortured, he just looks tired. Overall, I'm never going to meet my favorite actor, William Hurt, but if I ever do, I'll be able to say, "I'll follow you to Hellgate."
This cold have been a great film if it wasn't for Cary Elwes beyond terrible acting which makes the film painful to watch.
