Hellgate Dual Format Short Review

0.1 star for this atrocious "horror" film.Hellgate cover
Hellgate was first released in 1989. It is written by Michael O'Rourke (Moonstalker, Deadly Love) and directed by William A. Levey (Blackenstein, Skatetown, U.S.A). It is an eighteen certificate, although it is quite difficult to imagine why.
This is the story of Josie, played by Abigail Wolcott who was, quite magnificently, never in another film after this one. I can only assume that she watched Hellgate and subsequently died of embarrassment.
Hellgate dinerJosie is abducted from a diner by a motorcycle gang and brutally murdered. One of her Father's employees discovers a mysterious crystal in a mine, which can re-animate the dead. Having resurrected a plastic bat on a string, he takes the crystal to his employer who comes up with a cunning plan to resurrect his dead daughter and use her to lure men to his ghost town, Hellgate, so that he can kill them.
