Every once in a while I get an e-mail that really makes my day and today was one of those days. Arrived home to a message in my inbox from Lionsgate, announcing a brand new special edition release of one of my favorite horror movies of all time, THE GATE! I've loved The Gate (click for an old write up I did on the flick) ever since I was a kid and even before I actually knew the title of the movie and this news could not possibly make me any happier. The Gate : Monstrous Special Edition is set to be unleashed on October 6th of this year! Here are all the juicy details :
The Gate debuts in a Special Edition DVD this October from Lionsgate. Starring Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies), Kelly Rowan (TV's "The O.C.") and Jennifer Irwin (HBO's "Eastbound & Down"), the film is a terrifying tale about three children who accidently open a gate to hell which releases demons from an ancient civilization. The Gate : Monstrous Special Edition is loaded with new special features, including audio commentary with the director, interviews with the cast and crew, a stills gallery and the original theatrical trailer.
Now The Gate had been released on DVD a few years back but it's totally out of print now and sells for a pretty penny and besides, that edition was completely barebones in the way of special features. For these reasons, i've stuck to my VHS copy all these years and I cannot wait to get my hands on this special edition. It's been a long time coming and this Halloween season, it's finally here!
Any other fans of The Gate out there who are as excited about this news as I am?
