Welcome, curious viewers…have you the courage to go Beyond The Gates?
After their fathers unexplained disappearance, two estranged brothers (responsible Gordon (Graham Skipper) and reckless John (Chase Williamson)) reunite to sift through the contents of his stubbornly anachronistic VHS rental store. Among the inventory, they find an old interactive VCR board game. Intrigued, the brothers pop in the tape… and soon discover that this video is no ordinary game, but a portal to a nightmarish alternate reality: one with deadly consequences for anyone who dares to press play.
Featuring horror legend Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond), Beyond The Gates is a retro-cool tale of "hex, dies, and videotape", from director Jackson Stewart!

This is a nice movie for anyone that wanted a Jumangi style movie focused on VHS board games or anyone that thought that the characters in Ringu needed to be playing a game while waiting to die.
I cannot wait to go back and explore the special features.
The pacing might be an issue for some people (very slow, lots and lots of dialogue - things only pick up halfway through). The effects that we did see were great though, and I think overall this is a nice homage to a bygone era, even if it isn't "perfect." I look forward to seeing more from this director.
UPDATE: I've rewatched the film and changed my 3-star rating to a 4. I think there really was a lot of thought put into the film, but there were constraints nonetheless. As I mentioned before, I would have loved to see more of The Other Side.
