Gordon wakes up all of a sudden at hearing a noise and seeing a shadow on the street below. Looking at a shelf in the bedroom, he sees a key labeled "Office. The next day, both brothers are back in the store packing up videos when Gordon suggests that they look in their father's office. While searching the office, they find a VCR board game called "Beyond the Gates," and the VHS game tape is in the VCR in the office, the last tape their father watched in the office, presumably before he disappeared. They play the tape, and a woman, Evelyn, asks them if they are willing to risk their souls to play the game.
Beyond the Gates is a American horror film directed by Jackson Stewart and starring Barbara Crampton. It premiered on June 2, at the Los Angeles . Two estranged brothers reunite at their missing father's video store and find a VCR board game dubbed 'Beyond The Gates' that holds a connection to their.
A bright flash and odd noise occur, and the brothers turn off the tape. When they go back into the store, a number of hours have passed. That evening, John joins Gordon and Margot for dinner. After they tell her about the game, Margot suggests it would be fun to play it. When they put the tape in, Evelyn instructs Gordon "the blue player" to stand in front of the TV, and asks the brothers if they have the courage to do what is necessary to save their father - namely to locate the "four keys.
Disturbed by Evelyn's specific knowledge of them, they once again turn the game off. That evening, Gordon wakes at again and goes downstairs to find the TV on with a static screen and he is soon joined by John and Margot.
They are concerned enough that they call their friend Derek, a police officer, to have him look at the tape. This time, however, Evelyn just looks around the room when they play the tape, and all that Derek sees is just TV static. Annoyed, Derek leaves.
They find a receipt in the game box and decide to go the store where the game was purchased in the morning. The store is an odd occult store run by Elric, an odd mannered man. They ask him about the game, and he informs them that they must play the game to completion once it has started. As they are leaving, John steals a dagger resembling one in one of the game images. As they proceed to play the game again, they are instructed to turn over the first of four large cards. The first card is "The Drifter," and they are instructed to dig up "The Drifter" in the garden and remove the key from his "diseased organs.
At the same time, Hank is harassing his ex-girlfriend in a bar. When John cuts open the doll to take out the key, Hank is simultaneously and mysteriously disemboweled by an unseen force.
John removes the key, surprised to find it covered in blood. When they put the key on the board, a gate appears in the basement. Later that night when the men turn back on the tape, they are instructed to take the next key from the head of the lawman, telling them they must choose between life and death. Gordon realizes The Maiden is Margot and throws the game in the trash, but the next morning, the gameboard has reappeared set up in the living room.
Meanwhile, Margot goes to see Elric, who tells her that the only two paths ahead of them are to play the game or die. She asks if anyone has ever beaten the game, to which he replies, "No, but you are welcome to try. Margot asks if the players bring it back, to which he replies they do not return the game. Later that day, Derek attacks them with a shotgun, appearing to be in some sort of daze. As the men dive for cover, Gordon suddenly comes across a small grey plastic head with a key sticking out of it.
Reluctant to pull the key, he is forced to do so when Derek points the shotgun at his head.
He pulls the small key out of the head, causing Derek's head to explode, revealing the second key. At this point, Gordon goes to be alone, and Margot and John talk about the brothers' childhood.
Their mother died in a car accident and their father became an alcoholic after that point, alienating himself from the brothers. Margot reveals that Gordon drank a lot when they first met, but stopped after he accidentally broke her wrist during an argument, vowing to never drink again. With two keys on the board, the brothers return to the basement to find Margot standing in front of the now-glowing gate, holding the third key.
