Storyline

Bobby Mackey loves classic country music. When he buys an old nightclub, in Wilder, Kentucky, (near Cincinnati) he hopes to turn it into a dance hall that features the kind of music close to his heart. He dismisses his wife's fears that there is something indefinably wrong about the building. He also dismisses the similar fears of his new handyman, who worked there when it was a rock and roll nightclub and who blames the building itself on the unusual number of murders that took place in it. Mackey is forced to take the ghost stories more seriously when his wife claims that her fall downstairs, which resulted in her going into premature labor, was no accident. A ghost pushed her. Later, his handyman discovers a slaughterhouse well in the basement that frightens him unaccountably and seems to be the reason for his eventual erratic and menacing behavior. Meanwhile, Mackey's writer friend, Doug Hensley, learns of the building's wicked past. Written by J. Spurlin

Well done haunting about new owner of a country music dance hall...
4 September 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

It's always the husband in these stories who is skeptical about the happenings right under his nose, refusing to believe that there's anything paranormal when his pregnant wife claims she's being pushed down a flight of stairs and his handyman starts acting like a man possessed by demons (which he is).

As it turns out, a psychic has to be called in to solve the mystery behind the hauntings in the dance hall that is occupying land that had once been a slaughter house.

These series episodes are extremely well done, even when GATEWAY TO HELL seems a little far-fetched to be based on true incidents. The acting is very intense and the story is compelling enough to draw the viewer in from the start. An exorcism finally rids the distraught handyman of his demons, but even then the club owner stays on in his establishment and can't quite believe the place was ever really haunted by evil spirits. His wife and the handyman both know differently and vow never to return to the club.
