Gate 2 ★½ 1992 (R)

Tripp returns in his role as Terry, a young student of demonology in this lame sequel to “The Gate.” Terry and a few of his teen buddies call up a group of demons that have been confined behind a gate for billions of years. The demons are used to grant modest wishes, but the wishes end up having very evil effects. Incredibly weak plot saved only by the special monster effects, which include live action and puppetry. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Louis Tripp, Simon Reynolds, Pamela Segall, James Villemaire, Neil Munro, James Kidnie, Andrea Ladanyi; D: Tibor Takacs; W: Michael Nankin; C: Bryan England; M: George Blondheim.
