The Gallows Movie
With a plot that has been repeated umpteen numbers of times, The Gallows has absolutely nothing new to offer to the audiences. There is not one interesting or innovative thought in the flick that was released in theatres on 10th Jul 2015. In addition to the plot being completely predictable, the movie lacks anything that can make it the least bit entertaining.
Plot: A group of teenagers finds the footage of a deadly freak accident that killed some students of their high school nearly 20 years back. The youngsters plan to restage the events found in the footage to commemorate the two decades of the Incident. Little do they know that they are setting off a chain of events that will put each one of them in the path of death?
Critic’s Review: The film has been criticised for the flaws in its narration as well as the being entirely ridiculous. It is a visually mess, that is easily forgettable as it is neither supports a fresh storyline nor is remotely scary. The average rating given to the film is a dismal B-, which many still fell is nothing less than a generous favour to the flick.
Cast and Direction: Directors Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing need to seriously relearn the ABC of making genuine horror movies. As for the cast, consisting of Reese Mishler, Ryan Shoos, Pfeifer Brown, Cassidy Gifford, only Cassidy has given a stand out performance that might make her a genuine movie star someday.
Why will you watch: Well, you might want to watch The Gallows, if you are a teenager who has not grown up seeing the countless high-school horror films Hollywood has produced? Other than that, there is no reason to waste your time and money on this movie.
