Horrible Imaginings’ Audience Favorite Winner returns to San Diego for an exclusive engagement! Two brothers use an old VCR board to enter a nightmarish dimension where their father’s soul is trapped. Featuring Barbara Crampton.


In Beyond the Gates, two estranged brothers reunite seven months after their father’s disappearance to liquidate his anemic video store. While there, they unearth an old VCR board game that acts as an inter-dimensional hub to a nightmare world where their Father’s soul is trapped and can only be saved by playing the game. The film is an adventure horror that pays loving tribute to the VHS format, video stores, and board games of the era.


Critic Quotes:

A genre-infused adventure with a lot of heart that was made by a highly passionate cast and crew, Beyond the Gates is a wonderful example of indie horror done right and a great first-time feature for Stewart.” – Daily Dead

“The film is a great homage to the Italian horror films of the ’80s influenced by House By the Cemetery, The Beyond, and The Gate with a touch of Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm thrown into the mix.” – Starburst

“A fun flash-back to VHS horror…” – Variety
