Generally speaking, I detest most remakes. However, given that “Freaked” director and “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” alumni Alex Winter is behind the reimagining of “The Gate”, I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. The film, of course, is based on Tibor Takács’s 1987 chiller, which finds a very young Stephen Dorff battling demons after a heavy metal record opens a portal to Hell in his backyard. Rumor has it that H.R. Giger will be designing the creature, though I’m not entirely sure how much truth is embedded in that particular statement. Winter and crew are shooting for a 2011 release date, though I’m hoping they ditch the 3-D aspect long before cameras start to roll. A guy can dream, can’t he? The aforementioned teaser poster lies below.
