Uncork’d Entertainment has another new horror flick coming your way this December: The Gatehouse. They’re promising it will “stir the senses and spike the neck hairs.” And before we get into the plot, let me say this: do not, under any circumstances, ever even think about naming your kid “Eternity.” Just…don’t.
Jack is a struggling writer recovering from the death of his wife. His daughter, 10-Year-Old Eternity, loves digging for treasure in the forest behind her house. In a coincidental turn of fate, Jack agrees to undertake a writing project about the ‘legend of the black flowers’ at the same time that Eternity discovers a mysterious object in the woods, and the forest wants it back. They’ve unlocked an ancient curse and must now fight for survival.
The Gatehouse was directed by Martin Gooch and stars Scarlett Rayner, Simeon Willis, Linal Haft, Paul Freeman, Hannah Waddingham, Alix Wilton Regan, and Melissa Knatchbull. It will be out December 5 on VOD platforms.
