Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small town school resurrect the failed stage production in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy—but ultimately find out that some things are better left alone.


“The Gallows hung its hopes on too many jump scares and not enough originality ”

Review The Gallows & earn 20 DM Points*

Yet another found footage horror movie has made its way into cinemas. The Gallows is every bit as predictable and uninspired as one would expect from a Hollywood B movie. The movie doesn't disappoint with its setting and its concept, however. It makes good use of its environment, just not in a very original way. Also, found footage horror movies need to die already.

Back in the 90's, at a high school somewhere in the US, a tragedy occurred in front of packed audience at a high school rendition of The Gallows. 20 years later, the school decides to commemorate the death of the lead actor,Charlie in the worst possible way; by performing the play once more. Unwillingly cast into the lead role, Reese and his friends, Ryan, Pfeiffer, and Cassidy decide to destroy the set the night before the movie. The foursome, having a collective IQ of a hundred, decide it would be awesome if they videotaped themselves committing a jailable offense. As expected, there's an evil spirit that doesn't take too kindly to their actions. Trapped with a ghost inside a school, The four of them must now gather their wits and escape.

Overly shaky camerawork, below average acting, a crapton of incessant shrieking and screaming, The Gallows doesn't really have too much going for it. However, a few good jump scares and an interesting settings keep it from becoming a borefest. Unless you really really feel the need to get a few scares, you can give this one a miss.
