In an abandoned house that no one would think was special, on a street that one could say the same, a group of miscreants break in to use it for their criminal endeavors - but find out that the house is using them for something more sinister. In Niall Owens's debut feature he reinvents the deconstructed haunted house that should be a guide for first time filmmakers. Utilizing an eerie score, solid performances and exceptional storytelling Gateway shows you can make an effective and haunting film without breaking the bank or over stylized special effects and allow the viewers imagination to add the finishing touches. This tension filled psychological thriller proves that classic scares are the most effective when done with the skill and precision of someone who knows the genre. Gateway will leave a mark for it's simple elegance. - Cati Glidewell
