Two young boys accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from a hole in a suburban backyard. What follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the two kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that literally begins to take over the Earth.Written by

Neither geodes nor thundereggs form in lightning strikes. Both are of volcanic origin. Technically, a geode is not the same as a thunderegg, which is a filled nodule. The actual residue of molten ground in lightning strikes is called a fulgurite, which is lengthy, with branches. It can indeed be very valuable. See more »
Terrence 'Terry' Chandler:
We accidently summoned demons who used to rule the universe to come and take over the world.
Yeah, we found out about it from, uh, one of Terry's albums.

Overall, I liked The Gate because of it's weirdness. Plus, the special effects were eye-catching. Especially when the handyman tumbles over then transforms into tiny demons that scatter about. My favorite scene is when the parents return home late at night and Glen's father says "You've been baaaaaad!" and tries to strangle him while slime drips out of his face. Weird stuff. My only complaint is how it ended. But I won't give it away. I recommend seeing this one but keep in mind that those dwarf demons are "older than the Bible".
