Ah that’s a creepy monster…
The Gatehouse stars Scarlett Rayner (Pretty Outrageous), Simeon Willis (Mr Selfridge), Linal Haft (Moulin Rouge), Paul Freeman, Hannah Waddingham (Game of Thrones), Alix Wilton Regan (The Brave), and Melissa Knatchbull (Mission: Impossible), and is directed by Martin Gooch.
Whilst recovering from the death of his wife, and caring for their 10 year old daughter Eternity, Jack agrees to undertake a writing project about the ‘Legend of the Black Flowers’. Eternity, who loves digging for treasure, finds a mysterious object in the woods. And the woods want it back. Can they survive the curse they’ve unlocked?
Don’t go into the woods **Spoilers Ahead**
There’s a lot going on in The Gatehouse but it keeps you intrigued and curious about what will happen. I love the nightmare scenes, the soundtrack, and the ghost. The location was great, the English forest and gatehouse would be a gorgeous location to live – if there wasn’t a monster there, or a curse.
The story took a few strange turns before it reached it’s conclusion. Everyone seemed angry, which was probably the effect the forest was having on the locals, they did keep saying ‘everyone moves away’. And there were a few scenes where I’d start questioning something and then have it answered moments later. It’s a ‘keep watching through the credits’ movie.
The Gatehouse Review Conclusion
I would watch it again – Whilst there are a few things that threw me out of the story a little I would watch The Gatehouse again. It had it’s fair share of funny moments, jump scares, and creepiness. It’s a Friday evening on a rainy day in the winter kind of movie – but for horror lovers.
