My Heavy Metal Horror Fix: Terry From ‘The Gate’ (1987)

I woke up in a bit of a heavy metal mood this morning, so naturally I had to find one of the most heavy metal movie clips ever to satisfy my urge!

A bit overselling was going on there, but yes – nothing says heavy metal like Terry (Louis Tripp) from the 1987 horror movie aimed for kids, The Gate.  He really does love his Sacrifyx album and more specifically, he loves putting his rainbow-colored bedsheet on his head while he recites the spoken word of The Old Gods.  Might want to lose the rainbow-colored bedding if you want to keep your metal reputation intact, Terry.  There are a lot of things I love about The Gate and that scene is definitely one of them.  The other would be the one below that includes a creepy old zombie guy, a bunch of miniature demons, and a Barbie doll being used as a weapon.  Trifecta!
