Merchandising: ‘Gate,’ ‘Lair’ Steelbooks at Walmart

May 14 saw Lionsgate release the horror films The Gate and The Lair of the White Worm in new Blu-ray Steelbook editions exclusively at Walmart.

Sporting the Vestron Video logo and offered at $19.96 each, the Steelbooks include the films on “Digitally Restored Blu-ray” and include a digital copy. Walmart’s website lists them as readily available both online and for in-store pickup.

In 1987’s The Gate, a pair of teenagers searching for precious stones in the backyard accidentally unearth a portal to an underground chamber of terrifying demonic evil.

In 1988’s The Lair of the White Worm, Hugh Grant stars as James, a young lord who returns to his family’s castle in England, where it is said his ancestor once slayed the local dragon — a monstrous white worm with a fondness for the sweet flesh of virgins. James dismisses the legend as folklore, until archaeology student Angus Flint discovers a massive reptilian skull and a pagan snake god’s ancient site of worship. When James’s virtuous girlfriend, Eve Trent (Catherine Oxenberg), suddenly disappears, James and Angus set out to investigate the foreboding cavern said to be the worm’s lair, where a centuries-old mystery begins to uncoil.
