Mondo Trivia: The Gate II

*This film is apparently popular in France, as the DVD actually has an optional French audio track. Not only that, but the disc is marked with the French title as well! Viva La Gate II, apparently.

Who would have thunk it, huh? Stay tuned...


  1. I actually liked this movie quite a bit when I was young....
    It's the one where a kid wishes for stuff, and it literally turns to shit, right?

    Not a bad movie, really.

  2. Sorry to dispel this one man but there is no legitimate US release, the only DVD that is currently available is the Canadian release of the film, which is still Region 1, but explains the questionable French options

  3. Ah, I didn't know that. Given where so many 80s horror films were shot, that might make a bit of sense.

    Even so, you can't say that the image of 'The Gate II' on a DVD rack next to 'The Nutty Professor' in some French guy's house is not priceless.

    Also, said Canadian release has vanished since I got it. I would be surprised if we were not graced with a new one next year, especially if the new 'Gate' one sells.

  4. No believe me I was cracking up too, I was imagining this sophisticated Frenchman sipping coffee with his legs neatly crossed and pinkie extended while watching the restaurant scene and laughing a haughty French laugh
