The Gate (1987)

Not too shabby.

Stephen Dorff is one of my favorites (in a long list of favorites mind you but one of my favorites none the less) so it was interesting to see him as a child in this one.

He's pretty good no Elijah Wood in his age or anything but perfectly decent for the lead in this.

It's a bit on the slow side but it's got some cool ideas and if I saw it as a kid I'm sure I'd appreciate it even more, might even been scary to me back then cause even though the cast are mostly kids it is rather dark in tone and manages to not feel too cheesy.

I (re?)watched Critters some weeks ago and I didn't think it held up very well in 2017 but this one did just fine.
