'The Gate' Special Edition DVD

Finally available in a 'Monstrous Special Edition' widescreen DVD from Lionsgate, this is one '80s horror gem that will really show the youngsters on your holiday list how it was done in the days before CGI – or will brighten the lives of horror fans who grew up watching this one on cable TV (much like Night of the Creeps, which got similar royal treatment from Sony).

Pre-stardom Stephen Dorff made his screen debut in this cool monsters-from-hell flick from the Great White North, which has just about everything a growing horror fanboy needs: stop-motion animated beasties, well-developed human characters, plenty of dark humor and a light but fairly intense spattering of gore. This one's loaded with cool extras too, including commentary, a retrospective documentary and making-of footage.
