Scream Factory Opens the Gate 2



There are few films more beloved around DCHQ 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 it’s 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 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
  • NEW From the Depths – an interview with make-up effects artist Craig Reardon
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Video Promo and Video Store Contest promo
  • Still Gallery

68 Kill’s Scoot McNairy Joins True Detective Season Three



About two weeks ago we let you guys know that none other than The Gate and Leatherface star Stephen Dorff had joined the upcoming third season of HBO’s “True Detective”.

Today we wanted to let you know that Monsters and 68 Kill star Scoot McNairy has joined the third season as well. He is all set to play Tom, “a father who suffers a terrible loss that ties his fate to that of two state police detectives over 10 years.”

Dorff will play Roland West, an Arkansas State Investigator who, along with his partner (Mahershala Ali), has his life and career influenced over three decades by a baffling crime.

I’m excited to check out “True Detective” S3. Even after the ‘meh’ second season. How about you? Let us know below!

Nic Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros, and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.


A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Fear the Walking Dead Takes a Bite Out of Home Video



It’s taken three seasons, but “Fear The Walking Dead” has finally become as interesting as it should have been to begin with. If you lost hope after the first two seasons, we invite you to give the third a chance. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s a rotting step in the right direction.

Game? Than you’ll be happy to know that Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season comes to Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on March 13!

In Season 3, our survivor families are brought together in the vibrant and violent ecotone of the U.S.-Mexico Border. With international lines done away with following the world’s end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but their families as well.

Special features including deleted and extended scenes and audio commentaries. Check out the artwork below.
