In the cave near the end, there's lots and lots of light coming in. Apparently it's meant to come in through an entrance, but it's night outside. And for some inexplicable reason the light is flickering too. See more »

Unpretentious, trashy horror fun.
5 February 2009 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I imagine it will take me longer to write this comment than it took the creators of Cemetery Gates to come up with the plot for their film, but this being a not-exactly-original, no-frills monster movie doesn't stop it from being a whole lot of fun. It may have been done a thousand times before, but so long as there's plenty of silly creature effects, a ton of blood and gore, and some nudity from a busty girl or two, I'll never get bored of the 'mutant creature on the loose' sub-genre—and Cemetery Gates delivers on all counts.

The film's amazingly daft killer creature is a huge, genetically enhanced Tasmanian devil named Precious (yes, you read that correctly—a Tasmanian devil named Precious!!!) that has been released into the wild by a pair of very dumb animal activists. After immediately killing it's liberators, the vicious beast heads for a nearby cemetery, where a group of young film-makers are shooting the opening scenes for a horror movie. Meanwhile, scientist Belmont (Reggie Bannister) and his sexy assistant Dr. Christine Kollar (Aime Wolf) are tracking the monster, hoping to recapture it before it eats too many people. Fat chance!

With practically every attack by Precious being accompanied by buckets of blood, and the bits in between deaths made extremely bearable by the presence of a couple of young hotties (including the very cute, giggly August, played by busty blonde Kristin Novak, who regularly removes her top), Cemetery Gates is great entertainment for those not wanting to work their brain cells too hard.

Towards the end of the film, things do run out of steam a tad, with a little too much running around in tunnels for my liking, but with so much juicy splatter on display, a fun looking non-CGI beast, some fine breasts, plus a hilarious scene in which a hippie stoned on peyote sees Precious as a cute animated animal, I'm willing to be a little forgiving about the film's few imperfections.
