‘Beyond the Gates’ Harnesses the Power of the VCR

In Between the Gates two estranged brothers reunite at their missing father’s video store to liquidate the property and sell off his assets. As they dig through the store, they find a VCR board game dubbed ‘Beyond The Gates‘ that holds a connection to their father’s disappearance and deadly consequences for anyone who plays it.

Beyond the Gates is a throwback to the days of browsing the shelves at a local video store and picking a movie based on the artwork on the front of the box. Considering our site store is Rotten Rentals (VHS Mystery Boxes) this film falls right into our sweet spot. With the recent surge in VHS collectors and table top gaming this film will have no problem finding an adoring audience.

The film stars genre favorites like Brea Grant (Halloween II, Mystic Party), Graham Skipper (Almost Human, Carnage Park, The Mind’s Eye) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, Chopping Mall, You’re Next) but the biggest star of the film for horror fans will probably be the VHS store.
