The Gate II Trespassers: Huge disappointment
4 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Gate (1987) was a quirky horror comedy that I consider to be a classic of its time.

It's not until recently I became aware that it even had a sequel and upon investigation I saw why. The movie was created in 1988 but struggled to get a release, once it finally did it bombed and bombed hard.

Sadly it's clear why this is the case, it's pretty damn bad.

It picks up where we left off as Terry tries to fix all the damage done in the last movie. Sadly things don't go the way he planned and demonic activity kicks off once again.

The laughs are lacking, the horror is minimal and it all looks really quite crummy. Top that off with a really rather lame story and even worse execution and you have a hugely disappointing sequel.

The Good:

Old school practical effects

Follows on from the original

The Bad:

The film

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Some sequels simply shouldn't be made

Some things turn to crap, literally
