The Gate is a classic fantasy-horror flick from the 1980s that most haven’t seen. However, Lionsgate is looking to change that this May with a brand-new SteelBook Blu-ray edition. Coming on May 14th, the 1986 film from director Tibor Takacs has some awesome effects.

If you’ve never seen The Gate, here’s a synopsis.

When best friends Glen and Terry stumble across a mysterious crystalline rock in Glen’s backyard, they quickly dig up the newly sodden lawn searching for more precious stones. Instead, they unearth The Gate — an underground chamber of terrifying demonic evil. The teenagers soon understand what evil they’ve released as they are overcome with an assortment of horrific experiences. With fiendish followers invading suburbia, it’s now up to the kids to discover the secret that can lock The Gate forever . . . if it’s not too late.
