The Gate – 3 out of 5
|Kids were CONSTANTLY fighting zombies in the 80s.|
|She gets her hair gel from Ben Stiller.|
|Now imagine the E-cig hanging out of his mouth.|
|All of life's problems were created and subsequently solved by playing records|
backwards in the 80s.
|I've seen better holes to hell.|
|Yes, they are still frightening! No...wait...that's Terry.|
|Yeah...they're no longer creepy to me. They still look like turds though.|
Even though I’ve grown out of finding those little creatures that tried to eat Terry when he fell into the hole scary, I did completely forget how fun this film was. The 80s was a great era for movies that involved kids getting themselves into trouble and forced to step up their game to get the fuck out of it. Once the 90s hit, kids getting into trouble usually involved slapstick comedy and the lesson the kid learns is that just be wacky when the shit happens and all will work out…and possible traps/pranks/hi-jinks that will result in death in real life but will, of course, result in hilarity and pratfalls in the movie universe. Of course, I’m not saying this film doesn’t get silly…Glen saves the day with a goddamn rocket! (Oh, I’m sorry, did I just spoil a 27 year old movie for you?)
|Rockets kill demons. This isn't a spoiler, it's a fact of life.|
|Okay, I'll be honest, Terry is pretty damn cool.|
|This is why no one has land lines anymore.|
|"You cannot stop me, human. I mean, it's not like you have|
some sort of toy rocket or anything."
