31 Days of Halloween - Day 14 - Movie 1

Two young boys excavate a backyard hole that serves as a gateway for demons to enter our world. Now they are desperate to send the demons back where they came from and to seal the hole for good.

The Gate (1987) is surprisingly dark for what is a movie for kids. It's original PG rating has been modified to a PG-13. Pets, family members, friends, die, or are transformed into horrible monsters, and there are some pretty gruesome effects. It's a pretty entertaining movie, with some neat effects and monsters, but also a pretty frightening time capsule of fashion and hairstyles from the late 80s.
