Jackson Stewart's directorial debut BEYOND THE GATES is promising to be a terrific 80's throwback, and we're happy to share with you one more piece of evidence to that idea. This exclusive red band clip from the flick shows two brothers digging up a mysterious doll. Given the editing of this scene, it's pretty easy to predict what's going to happen. But as for how it happens? Well, that you've gotta see. Check it out below and thank me later.
Written by Stewart and Stephen Scarlata, BEYOND THE GATES has the following synopsis:
In the wake of their father’s mysterious disappearance, two estranged brothers — responsible Gordon and reckless John - reunite to sift through the contents of his stubbornly anachronistic VHS rental store. Among the inventory, they discover an interactive VCR board game, which their father viewed just before he vanished. Intrigued, the boys pop in the tape, press play, and soon discover that, far from an ordinary game, the video is a portal to a nightmarish alternate reality overseen by a sinister hostess and that in order to save their father’s soul, they must play by her rules.
The film stars Graham Skipper, Chase Williamson, Barbara Crampton and Brea Grant.
BEYOND THE GATES is currently available in select theatres and on VOD, thanks to IFC MIdnight.
