Overview

During a boring, routine weekend, young Glen (Stephen Dorff) and his best buddy Terry (Louis Tripp) decide to explore Glen's backyard. Before long, the boys come across a strange hole in the ground which yields all manner of sinister "prizes." Consulting one of his heavy-metal record albums, Glen comes to the correct conclusion that the hole is actually the Gate to Hell. Offering a "sacrifice" in the form of a dead dog, Glen further opens the portals of Hades, through which pass some of the most hideous demons imaginable. In a casual, near-offhand fashion, what begins as a Spielbergesque yarn about the consequences of childish snoopiness segues into an orgy of grotesque special effects, many of them deliberately tongue-in-cheek but no less frightening. A surprise box-office hit, The Gate yielded a less enjoyable sequel, wittily titled Gate II.
