Check out the trailer and poster for Nial Owens’ upcoming film, Gateway!
From the press release:
IT’S AN ORDINARY HOUSE – BUT WHAT WAITS INSIDE IS ANYTHING BUT
“Owens’ flick is a concrete demonstration that filmmakers do not always need to reinvent the wheel to make a compelling movie…. A door creaking, a moment of hesitation, a thousand-yard stare… along with many other well-oiled maneuvers, are all executed masterfully.” – CINEUROPA
OFFICIAL FILM SYNOPSIS:
Mike is a low-level drug dealer in debt to a ruthless supplier. When he and his gang set up shop in an abandoned house, he thinks his problems are solved. But a mysterious locked door inside the house and growing discord within the gang brings old feuds boiling to the surface. As friendships unravel, the house begins to enact its own plan, using the gang’s own deepest dark thoughts against them.
Like lambs to the slaughter, the men are lured one by one into the room and there they are confronted by the evil world that lies within themselves. The once-locked door is now open, and what lies beyond has its own desires.
