The Gate (1987)

While clearly forged in the age of Spielberg and Dante, The Gate is easily one of the better attempts at achieving that ghoulish tone. From the evocative opening dream sequence – young Stephen Dorff wakes to find his house ransacked … Continue reading

Blood Harvest (1987)

A generally bland slasher curio made all the more curious thanks to the heavy presence of Tiny Tim in the cast. The film makes good use of its contained locations, to the point where it feels like a narrative decision … Continue reading
