A Charming Tribute

Beyond The Gates is a great tribute to the horror and fantasy films of the 1980s. It also is an affectionate tribute to the VHS era and the now vanished heyday of video stores. The acting is excellent. The characters are all likeable. The plot is pretty straightforward. But it still manages to work some complexity in their as well. The make-up is great as well. The blood and gore is quite good as well. Beyond The Gates in an immensely entertaining movie. I give Beyond The Gates a rating of 8 out of 10.
