"...Special effects and makeup experts Randall William Cook and Craig Reardon manage this colorful chaos well....The three youthful protagonists are also cute..."
Two teenagers come across a special rock with a beautiful crystalline center in their backyard. The rock enthralls them and they dig up the family's lawn in a search for more of the precious stones, but instead find the Gate. It's a hidden underground chamber that holds the secret of centuries and the vengeance of eternity.
Two adolescent boys find a hole in the backyard that turns out to be the gate to hell. While their parents are away for the weekend, their quiet suburban home is overrun by demons.
