Beyond the Gates 2 coming from producer Brian Yuzna

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

I don't know if you have seen director Jackson Stewart's 80's horror throwback BEYOND THE GATES, starring Barbara Crampton, Graham Skipper, Chase Williamson, and Brea Grant. But you really should.

And you might want to get on it quick because it seems there is a BEYOND THE GATES 2 in the works from producer Brian Yuzna!

Director/co-writer Jackson Stewart was recently on the Scream Addicts podcast to talk all things A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER (nice) and dropped info on the sequel.

Director and co-writer Jackson Stewart on BEYOND THE GATES 2:

I am writing a sequel to Beyond the Gates, which will definitely take some cues from A Nightmare on Elm Street 4. It’s a little bit of a different story and kind of changes up some things. It’s definitely bigger scale, and a little bit more in the vein of the ’80s paranoia horror movies like The Stuff and Society, and even the ’70s Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It would be focusing on John from the previous movie. He has a new girlfriend in the mix; probably going to be [played by] Alex Essoe or Jocelin Donahue, someone cool like that.

He continues:

It should be pretty fun…I’ve been working with Brian pretty closely on the story for that, and it’s just been absolutely delightful.

Basically I would be back directing it and Barbara [Crampton] and Jesse [Merlin] would be in it, but it would be like a period piece so there probably wouldn’t be any other carry-over from the other cast [except for] maybe like an end credits tag or something.

Sounds like good times to us! What do you think of a BEYOND THE GATES PART II? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
