''Through the Wide Gate' is my love letter to 1970's psychological horror. I find contemporary horror films, entertaining as they might be, devoid of the things I find most compelling. Horrors of the mind.
Film has a long history of the real vs. the imaginary. We traverse these two worlds through some gateway; be it a dream or nightmare, a curse, a betrayal or a trespass. We know when we've left one and entered another because the filmmaker tells us so. We understand what we are seeing is real or imaginary. But what if we removed this threshold? What if our passage between what is real and what is imaginary isn't definitive? Mary is a sweet, but sensitive girl sitting on a thin, dangerous ledge. All it takes is the slightest breeze to push her over. ' - Patrick Clement, Writer/Director
