No one can dispute that Tibor Takács’ 1987 Canadian horror film The Gate is a cult – kid-friendly – horror classic. Growing up during the late 1980s and 90s, a fair amount of my spare time was spent watching the countless movies my parents had recorded off cable TV onto long play VHS tapes. We had stacks of them – mostly horror – which I would work my way through each one every weekend; discovering what would become all-time favourites, such as The Evil Dead. It was through these tapes that I discovered The Gate.
“They have opened the gate. Pray it’s not too late.”
