The Secret of the Sword

"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film.

The Gate Theatrical Trailer

When Krampus was released last year everyone was complaining that the film was rated PG-13 instead of rated R. Their logic was that the film was neutered to obtain a more friendly rating. This was far from the truth as the director always envisioned the film with a PG-13 rating. What the director was going for was the PG-13 horror film of yesteryear.

In the 80's the PG-13 horror film was all the rage. The films couldn't have much gore to them, so the filmmakers had to use their brains and go for atmosphere and actual scares, as opposed to the gore that 80's films were known for.

This brings us to The Gate, a PG-13, 80s horror film that gets lost in the shuffle when 80's PG-13 horror is brought up. The Monster Squad, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and Critters are always talked, but most people forget The Gate. This film has it all: a giant hole in the back yard that is a gateway to hell, a young Stephen Dorff, and some really amazing stop-motion animation. The film is scary without being gory. This is a film that deserves to be found again.
