The Gate ★★ 1987 (PG-13)

Kids generally like to explore and Dorff and Tripp are no exception. When a large hole is exposed in their backyard, it would be a childhood sin not to see what's in it, right? What they don't know is that this hole is actually a gateway to and from Hell. The terror they unleash includes more than just runofthemill demons. Good special effects. Followed by “Gate 2.” 85m/C VHS, DVD . Christa Denton, Stephen Dorff, Louis Tripp, Kelly Rowan, Jennifer Irwin; D: Tibor Takacs; W: Michael Nankin; C: Thomas Vamos.
