|The only mystery here is why Glen and Al barely get a mention.|
Yes, there's a sequel to the classic 80s film, The Gate, and it doesn't follow the young hero and his sister. No, instead it focuses his best friend. You know, the guy who was a huge fuck-up and nearly got the entire world decimated by demons because he wanted to go digging for geodes for cash and thought reading mysterious words that magically appear on paper is a great idea. The guy who had little to no effect in saving thew world, as Glen ended up handling that on his own with a toy rocket and a bleeding hand. This guy right here.
|The world is boned.|
|That's ok, though, as he doesn't have to be intentionally stupid alone.|
|But enough of that, let's get back to the demon.|
|I feel like the movie is honestly just critiquing itself at this point.|
|Someone call Stridex, I think Bulk here is going to need some medicated pads.|
Skull gets the other two and tries to get their help with his friend, but he ends up dying when he heart gives out due to his heart condition. But hey, that's ok, because he comes back after Terry prepares the vessel to send the demon back and finds that both Bulk and Skull are now demons themselves inside of Glen's old house. They take the girl, planning to sacrifice her, and Terry shows up to stop them but is informed they won't be doing the honours, he will. He then turns into what I guess is supposed to be a giant version of the demonic minion.
|Personally, I think he looks like he just wandered off the set of The Strain.|
He goes along with it before the actual minion busting out of the vessel (which is Terry's dead mother's music box) snaps him back to being himself. He stabs Bulk in the face and sticks the minion into the box, tossing it into the large hole below them (which is supposed be the gate). Tough girl wakes up in the abandoned house with Terry's now lifeless body and the movie ends at his funeral. But, before the credits get a chance to end this on a down note, Terry opens up his coffin revealing he's alive again because the girl made with some magic juju wish power to bring him back and they walk off with his confused (but happy) father. Bulk and Skull also then crawl out of the coffin and declare "who needs girls when you've got demons, man", hammering home the fact that I am fairly certain these two want to bang, and the movie finally releases me from its iron grip.
|Now, go into those woods and give one another some wood.|
|Trust me, the 90s wouldn't have noticed if there was one less grunge kid running around.|
|Behold, the lovechild of Harry Potter and Voldemort. Enjoy that image.|
