The Gates of Hell is name of the version of this film that I saw. It was a gore fest with very little or no plot. When I have seen the original version of this film I will do a review on that but this one is based upon the grind house version of said movie. Loosely based upon the writings of H.P. Lovecraft and the first of a trilogy that is followed by The Beyond and House by the Cemetary.

The story is about an evil priest who's spirit has returned to wreck havoc on the living and bring hell on earth. A group of nosy people travel to the god forsaken soil of the evil priest and try their best to close the "gates" of hell before they are even opened. What happens next? Do they even come close? What about the chain smoking Chris George? How does he factor in this flick? What about the attractive Catriona? Why did she do several more Fulci films? What about the freaky and bloody set pieces are they cool? You'll have to find out for yourself. Watch The GATES OF HELL!!!
