The Gate (1987)



Three young children accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from a hole in a suburban backyard. What follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the three kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that is literally taking over the Earth.This was Stephen Dorff's debut film role. This Canadian horror film owes a big debt to POLTERGEIST (1982) in terms of "suburbia gone wild" style but it manages to hold its own with an interesting story and excellent f/x work. Another must see for any 80s Horror Fan!

The fictional The Dark Book album that Terry shows to Glen features the logo for (the very real) Canadian thrash metal band Sacrifice.
