What is behind the shower curtain?...

Now this is something you don't see every day; a portal manifesting in a small bathroom.

Truth be told, then I didn't really know what to expect when I sat down to watch "The Gateway" (aka "Curtain"). I had initially thought it to be a horror movie, but found out that it was labeled as a horror, mystery and Sci-Fi movie here on IMDb. And I must admit that the horror aspect of the movie was not prominent, much to my disappointment.

Actually there was an adequate pacing to the movie, especially because it starts out in a high gear, then slows down a bit but continues on in a fairly good pace.

Story-wise then "The Gateway" definitely was a deviant from what I am used to watching, for better or worse. I found it to be somewhat interesting because it was so different, and because it was somewhat offbeat. While the movie was entertaining enough, the storyline wasn't the most thrilling or riveting of story lines.

The cast ensemble in the movie was relatively small, which meant that the actors and actresses in the movie had to carry more weight to support the movie. And I will say that the acting talents were actually doing good jobs with their given roles and characters.

The characters in the movie were good, especially because they were detailed and memorable. Writers Carys Edwards and Jaron Henrie-McCrea certainly did create some outstanding characters to appear in the movie.

As for the effects in the movie, well this wasn't a major Hollywood production with a multi-million dollar special effects budget, that much is obvious. But it should be said that the special effects that actually were in the movie served the movie quite well. The effects when the shower curtains are pulled through the wall (gateway) actually looked quite good and realistic.

The music score in the movie was quite interesting. It was fitting to the mood of the movie and it had somewhat of a 1980's horror movie to it, which I personally did like, as it added a unique flavor to the movie.

When Danni is having her nightmarish dreams, it was just a bit too reminiscent of the visuals used in the "Evil Dead" movies. I like that, though, but it was a bit unoriginal.

"The Gateway" is a somewhat odd movie, but interesting enough for a single viewing. The movie is hardly the type of movie that you will watch more than a single time, as it just doesn't have the quality that supports multiple viewings.
