Directed by Clay Staub
FEATURE NARRATIVE 94 Minutes World Premiere
FBI Agent Daria Francis (Amanda Schull) can’t shake the feelings of remorse stemming from a failed attempt to save an innocent victim while on the job. But there’s no time to wallow. A new assignment has redirected her attention to the small town of Devil’s Gate, North Dakota. A local woman and her young son have gone missing, and all signs point to foul play on the part of her husband (Milo Ventimiglia). But when Agent Francis and the local deputy (Shawn Ashmore) enter his farmhouse’s basement, the case proves to have far wilder implications than they could have imagined.

Over the course of its 24-hour story, Director Clay Staub’s unnerving Devil’s Gate subverts the expectations of the familiar police procedural, playing with genre tropes as its unimaginable mystery thickens.
