After receiving praise at this year’s Frightfest festival, the retro-inspired Beyond the Gates has been scheduled for release on DVD and Blu Ray on 20 February 2017. The film begins with the reuniting of two recently bereaved sons who have to trawl through their father’s VHS video collection, coming across a VHS video-based board game in the process. They start to play the game, ignorant to the fact that they are opening a portal to another dimension. The film features Barbara Crampton (Re-animator) and Graham Skipper among the cast.
