When Al (Christa Denton) and Glenn’s (Stephen Dorff) parents (Deborah Grover, Scot Denton) leave town for the weekend, Al uses the opportunity to throw a party while little brother Glenn and his friend Terry (Louis Tripp) decide to explore a hole left by a tree-removal service in the backyard. When unexplainable phenomena begin occurring, Terry — with the help of his extensive heavy-metal music collection — comes to the conclusion that he and Glenn have accidentally opened a gateway to hell. < iMDB

- My Take
Typical 80s flick with stupid teenagers, scared kids and absent adults. The movie picks up about halfway through when the demons arrive. I liked the amazing creepy clay-motion effects.
Scare Score- 5/10- Would be good one for kids. Not too much gore.
Re-Watch-Ability- 3/10- I won’t be pulled to watch this one for a while, if at all.
