Lionsgate Prepping a Special Edition of The Gate!


Now updated with DVD package art

That’s right. The Gate. The 1987 film starring a pint-sized Stephen Dorff is getting the special edition treatment courtesy of Lionsgate!

On October 6, The Gate: Monstrous Special edition will street with audio commentary by director Tibor Takács, interviews with the cast and crew, a still gallery and theatrical trailer.

Here’s a plot synopsis to refresh that brain of yours: They are here and they want to meet the neighbors. After an old tree is removed from the ground, three teenagers come across a special rock with a beautiful crystalline center in their backyard. The rock enthralls them and they dig up the family’s lawn in a search for more of the precious stones. However, instead of stones, they find the Gate: a hidden underground chamber that holds the secret of centuries and the vengeance of eternity. Their actions inadvertently liberate a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from the hole and what follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the three kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that is literally taking over the Earth.

There’s no better time than now to release this title on DVD – which has been on the convention bootleg circuit. Alex Winter is developing a 3-D remake.
