A trailer has been released for The Gates, a horror film starring Richard Brake and John Rhys-Davies, coming soon to VOD
Character actor Richard Brake has a lot of success in his career, racking up almost 90 screen credits over the last thirty years. Those credits include roles in Cold Mountain, Batman Begins, Doom, Munich, and Hannibal Rising, so he started getting cast in major productions with some frequency rather early on. But it’s interesting to see how much more prolific he has gotten since playing The Night King in Game of Thrones and Doom-Head in Rob Zombie’s 31. About half of his credits have come just in the seven years since 31 was released. Next up for him is The Gates, where he co-stars with John Rhys-Davies of the Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings franchises (in addition to over 250 other projects). The film is scheduled to receive a digital and VOD release in the US and Canada on June 27th, and a trailer for it can be seen in the embed above.
Directed by Stephen Hall, who also wrote the screenplay with Tim Reynolds, The Gates has the following synopsis: A serial killer has been sentenced to death by electric chair in London in the 1890s, but in his final hours, he puts a curse on the prison he is in, and all of those in it.
This is Hall’s second feature, following the 2018 horror film Killer Night Shift. Brake and Rhys-Davies are joined in the cast by Michael Yare (Attack on Finland) and Elena Delia (House of Shadows).
Coming our way from 101 Films and Trinity Creative Partnership, The Gates was produced by Michael Jones, John Lerchen, and Paul Thompstone.
