Gate of Hell is one of my favorite movie from year 1953. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. Not this one. Gate of Hell is a great movie and there is no doubt. I'm the biggest fan in the world of movies like this. Varied dialogues are the quintessence of this image, they inspire the viewer. Fucking loved this movie! Such a mix of emotions. Watch Gate of Hell online or download it.
