one big mess … kinda
To get it out of the way – i rated the movie a 4/10 for being pretty forgettable.
But that does not mean i do not appreciate some things it tried to do. It does however fall with its totally and utterly ridiculous story; a story that is so silly that it most probably is intentional. In short – the story feels like one of those cheap books that tells you to keep on reading on a certain page once you made a decision or like an amateurish table-top-rpg – all along with actors that both underact and overact. (kind of like many roleplayers i feel) Then there are the character archetypes that are so flat and one dimensional… they do not have a sliver of personality about them; and of course a story that lacks any logic.
Once you get that out of the way – you can start to appreciate some neat details though. There is a certain 90s vibe going on, which is dismissed by the rather modern still shots in many scenes. There is some 90s colouring and scenes – and then again more modern ones.
There is what feels like a certain homage to Lynch movies (curio shop owner and camera works in that shop) and some raw, low budget slasher core movies.
The tone of the movie itself is almost somber with extreme gore sprinkled in (that mostly looks deliciously fake) The dialogue consists of meaningless one liners for the most part – and the actors hardly act scene-appropriate.
But the movie actually was kind of funny to watch – utterly forgettable but fun – in all its cheesiness. And sometimes one wants to watch some cheese i guess.
However – i cannot recommend it. Maybe as part of a horror video night with friends (and alcohol…) There are “gems” in the movie that certain people may love and appreciate though. It has a very narrow target audience. (i am not it) But if you are – you may well very much enjoy it.
Nostalgic and Entertaining
Gordon (Graham Skipper) returns to his hometown with his girlfriend Margot (Brea Grant) to meet his estranged brother John (Chase Williamson) to close the video store of their missing father and pack the videotapes and the DVDs. John finds the key of the office that is closed and decides to snoop around with Gordon. They find the VCR board game “Beyond the Game” and they decide to play with Margot. Soon they learn that the game must be played until the very end; otherwise they will die.
“Beyond the Gates” is a nostalgic and entertaining movie that follows the style of many films from the 80’s and 90’s (specially “Jumanji”). The story is flawed and, for example, Derek dies without any further consequences. But fans of the genre will not be disappointed. My vote is seven.
