Remember The Gate? A very fun and entertaining little horror flick that never achieved much popularity and was pretty much destined to show on HBO now and again back in the day. Stephen Dorff's film debut by the way. Director Tibor Takács(who also made the underrated I, Madman) decided to bless us with another tale of The Gate, but unfortunately the (black)magic really isn't all there this time.
Terry(the secondary hero from the first film) is obsessing over what he had experienced in his neighbor's house two years earlier. With his father on a downward slide of depression and alcoholism, he decides to conjure up the very same powers that nearly killed him and ask for help for his father, who needs to get a job and kick the sauce. Along with two thugs and a new love interest, he performs the ritual in Stephen Dorff's abandoned house(Dorff's character had the smarts to move away after the incident. Or maybe they just couldn't talk him into doing a sequel). The ritual is botched due to one of the idiot thugs, and one of the "minions"(those lovable little mini-demons we saw in the first film) ends up with a bullet in it. Terry nurses the creature back to life and soon everybody involved in the ritual is getting everything they wished for! But the problem in films like these is that getting your wish isn't always a good thing. The wishes literally turn to poopy after so much time. Terry sees the error of his ways(he managed to reopen that damned gate through his meddling) and with his newfound girl, goes to do battle with the forces of darkness to close the gate once more.
Could have been fun, but ends up being merely so-so. Maybe I was spoiled by pleasant childhood memories of the first film, but there was nothing all that exciting or interesting here.

Terry becomes obsessed with The Gate after narrowly escaping from the demons five years ago. He summons the creatures once more, and manages to trap one of the minions which has the ability to grant wishes for its captor. Naturally, the wishes have ironic consequences, and each wish comes at a terrible cost. While the special FX do not fall anywhere near the same incredible level as the original, THE GATE 2 does offer much of the same stop-motion animation and forced perspective sequences that never fail to impress. Where the film does begin to show an immediate decline is in the sluggish pace and annoying characters (including the once enjoyable Terry). The recycled take on The Monkey's Paw fails to deliver anything new or interesting to the original story, and tries to substitute plot and character for a few gooey FX sequences. The climax of the film finds Terry and his new love interest crossing through The Gate in to the hellish alternate dimension in a final confrontation with one of the demon lords, but the scene is short lived and only delivers the most unconvincing special FX and costuming of the entire feature. After stripping away the childhood fantasy, terrifying mood, and likable characters in THE GATE, THE GATE 2 becomes just another watered down sequel that lacks most of the successful elements of the original.

The story line was different and because I have the first one decided to complete my collection, Little monsters causing havoc and killing a house seems like a good idea, Now that we didn't get to much off. The cast played their roles fantastic and I felt like I was involved in the show with them. You never know what's next and what the nasty little things can do, A bit of comedy to lighten up the horror, Yes I think this movie is really great and I have given an A for the thought and ideas in this movie, be prepared and wait for the suspense as there is plenty to go around, worth buying and different to all shows I have seen since. Want more well I don't like spoiling movies for everyone and I rather let you decide for yourself. Buy your goodies sit back grab a pillow and enjoy a groovy classic. Robyn
