Religious Horror Sends Us Up the Devil’s Creek



The Bible is rife with tales of terror, making it truly a good book. While that last statement may be offensive to some, there’s no denying that there’s lots of spooky strewn about within its pages.

Filmmaker Mohit Ramchandan is exploring one such aspect of religion gone awry with his modern day telling of The Book of Job, entitled The Devil’s Creek, which is to be shot in 2010.

Ramchandan caught up with Bloody Disgusting to give them the lowdown on what to expect.

“It tells the story of Adam Mathews, a small town preacher, who awakens from an accident on the banks of Devil’s Creek, seriously injured and unable to remember what’s happened to him and his wife,” Mohit adds. “Rescued by a Park Ranger, his wounds are treated at a remote ranger station. After a quick recovery, Adam is questioned by his rescuer about the circumstances surrounding his mysterious brush with death. With more questions than answers, Adam can shed little light on the events that transpired at the Creek. But as Adam discovers a man tied up in the basement of the station and the Ranger’s seemingly benign investigation quickly turns into a hostile interrogation, it becomes clear to Adam that the Ranger may have been involved not only in his own near death, but in the disappearance of his wife. As he uncovers the truth of what happened to him, Adam’s faith is tested and he ultimately realizes who he is.

Unlike the current batch of horror films today that aim to shock and scare the audience without credible motivation, Devil’s Creek focuses on the emotional journey of the characters in the same way that Rosemary Baby and The Exorcist do, resulting in a much more terrifying experience. At its core it deals with a man who loses his faith in god and regains it at the end as he realizes that in every disaster there lies a seed of grace.

The film stars Adrian Alita, Mo Ramchandani, Christa Mathis, and veteran TV actor Richard Brestoff.”

Scream Factory Opens the Gate 2



There are few films more beloved around DC HQ than Tibor Takacs’ 1987 monster-filled classic The Gate. It’s top to bottom fun featuring stop-motion beasties and a cute-as-a-button young Stephen Dorff, and that’s only a couple of reasons why the flick just rules.

Scream Factory (bless their hearts) just announced that its sequel, Gate II, will finally be getting a Blu-ray release; and we have your details and artwork right here.

Look for the flick starring original The Gate star Louis Tripp on February 27, 2018.

This supercharged sequel to the horror classic The Gate comes alive with unearthly creatures, heart-stopping action, and incredible special effects. Gate II picks up again with Terry, the teenage sorcerer who summons beings from the other side whose powers can be used to grant any wish. Unfortunately, before the Gate closes again, a “minion” – a tiny disciple of Satan himself – manages to slip through to our dimension. When the creature is kidnapped – all hell breaks loose.

Special Features:

  • NEW 2K scan of the interpositive
  • NEW Return to the Nightmare – A Look Back at GATE II – featuring interviews with director Tibor Takacs, screenwriter Michael Nankin, and special visual effects creator Randall William Cook
