‘Devil’s Gate’ Blu-ray Review (Scream Factory)

Stars: Milo Ventimiglia, Bridget Regan, Amanda Schull, Javier Botet, Shawn Ashmore | Written and Directed by Clay Staub

A wife and child have gone missing in the small town of Devil’s Gate, North Dakota. While all indicators point to husband Jackson Pritchard as the prime suspect, pushy outsider FBI agent Daria Francis instinctively feels something else is going on in this incestuous hamlet and together with deputy Colt Salter goes to investigate. And indeed they do track down Pritchard, a man caged in unrelenting darkness and despair…

A genre-bending, genre-blending mix of horror, sci-fi and backwoods adventure, Devil’s Gate is one of those films that takes often cliched parts from other genres and utilises them in new ways – by playing with and subverting audience expectations to create a story that uses misdirect and convention-bending in ways other films use stereotypes and cliches. Even the title is a misdirect!

Film Review: ‘Acts of Violence’

Film Review: ‘Acts of Violence’
In vigilante fantasy “Acts of Violence,” it doesn’t matter how many of the titular acts occur — or how many people get killed, “bad” and “good” — so long as the goal is righteous, not to mention self-righteous. If a dozen or two folks die en route to a kidnap victim being rescued, well, that’s just the price that family, loyalty and courage required.

That sort of ratio might seem utterly crazy in the real world, but it’s routine in the kind of boilerplate modern action movie that director Brett Donowho’s feature in many way typifies. There’s no question here that taking the law into his own hands is simply what a real man’s gotta do. And there’s no more novelty in that reactionary message anymore than there is in rest of this slick and well-paced if uninspired time-filler, which Lionsgate is giving a limited theatrical launch simultaneous with its on-demand release

The film's theatrical poster is hosted here. Devil's Gate has already been reviewed on 28Dla, here (A Devil's Gate Review on 28Dla). The film is very much an alien abduction film. Local authorities investigate a disappearance, while others continue to disappear. This is director Clay Staub's directorial debut. And, the film's pace is a bit slow. Though, sci-fi and mystery film fans will likely enjoy this title, more than horror fans.

I've got a great trailer here for you to watch for a surprisingly good-looking movie called Devil's Gate. The film is a sci-fi creature feature that is set in a small fictional town in North Dakota named Devil's Gate. Things start out as a typical murder mystery but as things start to unravel, things go in a very unpredictable direction and creepy chaos ensues. This looks like it's going to be a wild movie!

Milo Ventimiglia in First Trailer for Sci-Fi Horror Thriller 'Devil's Gate'

"Some people are better off not being found." IFC Midnight has debuted the first official trailer for a sci-fi creature feature horror thriller called Devil's Gate. The title comes from the location in the film, a small town in North Dakota named Devil's Gate (which does not really exist). This starts out as your typical small town murder mystery involving various shady characters, but then turns into some crazy alien horror half-way through (the trailer) with some freaky shots. Milo Ventimiglia stars as religious fanatic Jackson Pritchard, along with Amanda Schull, Shawn Ashmore, Bridget Regan, and Jonathan Frakes. That actually seems like a cool cast for a sci-fi horror, and maybe there's some cool twists in this for horror fans to enjoy. All the creepy footage with the creature in this trailer is quite effectively scary. Check it out below. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Clay Staub's Devil's Gate,

First Trailer for Action Thriller 'Acts of Violence' Starring Bruce Willis

"Can't go around kicking in doors." Lionsgate has released the first trailer for an action thriller titled Acts of Violence, yet another instantly-forgettable B-movie from nowhere starring the formerly-great Bruce Willis. In this one, Willis plays a cop investigating human trafficking and fighting a corrupted bureaucracy. The plot focuses on three Midwestern brothers, a crime lord, and Willis' cop, who are all on a deadly collision course when the youngest brother’s fiancée is kidnapped by human traffickers. So they make it a mission to save her, and of course there's plenty of guns and explosions. The cast includes Cole Hauser, Shawn Ashmore, Ashton Holmes, Melissa Bolona, Sean Brosnan, and Sophia Bush.
