No, not Blade, although I wouldn’t mind seeing Blade Trinity remade so that it would, you know, not be a piece of shit. Instead, it’s 1987’s The Gate, a low-budget “oopsie!-we-summoned-the-Devil” flick starring an incredibly young Stephen Dorff. Dorff and his friends accidentally open up a gate to hell that spawns leeettle tiny demons and random holes in walls. And of course, what is a key ingredient for opening this bit of evil hijinks? A heavy metal album. God, I miss the 80’s sometimes.
In any event, H20 Pictures is filming it. No cast, director, writer or really much of anything else has been announced. So I guess this post is pretty damn thin. Wait! Here’s a little fun fact for you. The original version was directed by Tibor Takács, whose resume includes episodes of “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” and “The Crow: Stairway to Heaven.” More importantly, and way more culturally, politically and intellectually significant, is the fact that he is also the breathtaking genius who brought us Mansquito.
We should all send him a nice fruit basket.
