Beyond the Gates: Barbara Crampton dares you to play a spooky board game in promo

Posted on

In the horror film Beyond the Gates (in theaters and on VOD, Dec. 9), Chase Williamson (SiREN) and Graham Skipper (The Mind’s Eye) play brothers ensnared by a deadly, supernatural VHS board game whose spooky hostess is portrayed by Barbara Crampton (You’re Next, Re-Animator). While the titular game is fictional, that hasn’t stopped director Jackson Stewart from putting out a believably retro-looking commerical for this most un-trivial pursuit which stars Crampton, Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes), Samantha Robinson (The Love Witch), and Alena von Stroheim (the upcoming Found Footage 3D).

Beyond the Gates costars Brea Grant, Matt Mercer, Sara Malakul Lane, Henry LeBlanc, Justin Welborn, and Jesse Merlin. You can see the film’s trailer below and that new faux promo above.
