Actor Carl Kraines, who portrayed the 'zombie workman', was also the dialogue coach for the child actors who appeared in 'The Gate'. He also provided the voice heard on the record that Louis Tripp's character 'Terry' plays backwards.

Back in the late eighties and early ninties, U.S. TV broadcasts of "The Gate" were supplemented by a five minute 'making of' featurette which came on at the end of each showing. The featurette covered the writing of the story and the creation of the special effects for the film. Although the featurette is now no longer shown on TV, it can be found on any Australian VHS/PAL copy of a movie called 'The Women's Club'...an unrelated sex-thriller starring Michael Pare. "The Making of the Gate" appears on the video as a bonus after the final credits.
