Great Clean Horror Film (by honestmoviereviews-58487)
I was concerned about going to an R rated horror film, but was pleasantly surprised that there was no nudity, F words or blood and gore. It was nice to be on the edge of my seat and to be completely scared throughout the movie. I was surprised by some of the negative reviews because this movie was great entertainment and definitely worth seeing on the big screen. Some of the reviewers say that the movie has a slow start. Perhaps some of these people have a short attention span, because the group of friends that I watched the movie with, felt that it was just telling the story in the beginning <more>
and then the suspense begins about 30 minutes in. We were on the edge of our seats and the ending was awesome!!
Nice to finally see a really scary movie!!! It was great to hear so many people screaming in the theater!! My friends and I were on the edge of our seats for most of the movie. Previous reviewers have mentioned that the movie got a slow start. We didn't think that it had a slow start at all. The beginning of the movie is a very important part of the story, and then BAM....it gets scary and suspenseful for the rest of the movie. I highly recommend seeing this on the big screen because scary movies are always better in the theater. The actors were great in the movie and Charlie was freaking <more>
scary!!! The ending had a very scary twist too!! Loved the ending. I'm giving it 10 stars.My friends thought it was one of the best scary movies they've seen in theaters. I have to agree.
Can't believe this movie is better than I expected. (by humasrtkanwilbali)
I was going alone for this movie since I'm a curious horror fan movies. Had no idea of what kind of terror it offered, and really. Surprised! I love this movie. The first time I saw the poster, I thought it would be horrible. But thanks for the plot and anything else took part in it, I saw no nudity and cursing words like latest horror movies did. To the people who criticized the sound effect, damn, you're so wrooooong. I found it an amazing job there. The details they did, it's like, woaaaah. Especially the hanging rope sound. Every single time I heard that sound, I was always <more>
wondering,"S**t, what goes after this?". After shocking sound here and there, I keep screaming as hell. Everything felt so real, and full of fear. Literally. The ending is frustrating actually. I can't even believe it ends that way. But still doesn't hold me down from loving this movie. Anyway, do you guys know who the guy is hanging when Ryan is parted from the other three at the basement room? I kept thinking it. Really, who is it? :
The bare basics of horror housed in one brief, engaging horror film (by StevePulaski)
In October of 1993, the students of Beatrice High School in Beatrice, Nebraska put on a play called "The Gallows." A last minute casting switch had an understudy playing the lead role, who's character was hanged before the townspeople at the conclusion of the play. Due to a horrific accident, shortly after the actor, named Charlie Grimille, slipped into the noose, a malfunction sent him through the floor beneath his feet, killing him almost instantly. Twenty years later, to honor the cast and the late Charlie Grimille, the students of Beatrice High School decide to resurrect the <more>
show, with a student named Pfeifer Pfeifer Brown directing the play.Former football star turned thespian Reese Reese Mishler has decided to take on the lead role this time around, much to the dismay of his father, who wanted him to continue football, and his pal Ryan Ryan Shoos , who hangs around the set during rehearsals just to ridicule and belittle the castmates. Reese desperately wants to get close to Pfeifer, though his own stage fright and lack of acting abilities prevent him from being much more than just another body on stage in her eyes. In an attempt to win her affection by being there, Ryan hatches a misguided plan of breaking into the school one night through an unlocked door and destroying the set of the play before opening night, presumably resulting in an opportunity for Reese to console Pfeifer. Reese, Ryan, and Ryan's girlfriend Cassidy Cassidy Gifford go along with their asinine plan, breaking into the school late at night, but once they wind up meeting Pfeifer at the school, they encounter a barrage of paranormal activity and strange occurrences from what is believed to be Charlie's undead ghost.Such is the premise for "The Gallows," the umpteenth rendition of the found footage genre, which I claimed to be "uniformly dead" following the release of 2012's "The Devil Inside." With "The Gallows," a film made on a shoestring budget and released by Blumhouse, a known indie horror company, no new ground is broken but the ground that the film manages to chart is interesting, twisty, and a great deal of fun.I've always found high school/college drama rooms and theaters to be creepy places where one can find just about any old prop or relic. Seeing these locations captured with lowlit, dingy lightning only emphasizes their almost inherent eeriness. With "The Gallows," we don't settle for creaky floorboards and shifty objects, but rather, detailed props and set designs of colonial periods that really intensify a feeling of discomfort. Being that there are only four characters, confined to the spacious setting of a theater-focused high school, there is a lot of room for which to roam and play around, which adds to the fun of the film.The writing/directing team of Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing also have fun toying with the visual possibilities of their setting. Consider the scene where they evoke an effect that almost communicates an optical illusion to the audience, showing a long, narrow hallway in the bowels of the school, captured in almost complete darkness, with the bottom half of the walls painted dark red. The visual effect makes it look like we, along with the characters, are wading through a thick, black sea of sorts, or are encapsulated into nothingness. These visual tricks, whether conscious decisions on part of the filmmaking team or fortunate occurrences, make for a film that is never visually boring, constantly finding ways to invigorate its setting.The videography and editing, while shaky, also works to help the film create this spooky atmosphere. The nauseating effects of found footage films are well known, and this year saw some of the shakiest videography the genre had yet to see in "Project Almanac," which still wound up succeeding in my mind on a plethora of different levels despite its guerrilla filmmaking. The shakiness of "The Gallows" is never a real issue, for it continues to add to the suspense and Edd Lukas's cinematography, which is very fixated on the lowlit and the ominous."The Gallows" could've also fallen prey to the faults of "As Above, So Below," last summer's low-budget horror effort, which failed largely in part because of its interchangeability in its execution. "The Gallows," however, keeps things moving not only with a great setting but narrative twists and a persistency to show what other found footage films won't always show. We have multiple different camera perspectives, and once we see a character is doomed from one angle, we will eventually see the event unfold from his or her perspective and not just the one that closes us off from the events. So many found footage films leave us in the dark when it comes to the fate of the film's characters, figuratively and literally, but Cluff and Lofing seem to be sick of being left in the dark and, in turn, give us multiple different perspectives to show us what we wanted to see in the first place.If you're no fan of the found footage genre, "The Gallows" certainly won't make you one. It lacks the power of being the subversive piece of horror that the genre really needs now look to films like Patrick Brice's "Creep" for that kind of quality . However, this is a film that does the very bare basics of the genre correctly, and with a budget of approximately $100,000, "The Gallows" finds itself stripped to the genre's minimum, forced to focus on narrative and the creepiness of its setting. This is the perfect horror outing that makes audiences active in the mystery and the looming ominousness of the story, rather than passive observers simply anticipating the next jump scare.
.Best scary movie I have ever seen! (by stevehrdlicka)
I loved the fact that a scary movie can scare me to death without gore, nudity or unnecessary profanity. There was a believable plot. Most scary/horror movies frustrate me because they put people in unrealistic situations, and have characters do absolutely stupid things. The Gallows does not do that. They nail the what, how, and why everything occurs. This is clearly the best scary movie I can remember ever seeing. The second time I saw the movie, I enjoyed it more. This is a movie you can see multiple times, and still be scared and see things you did not see before. The R rating is <more>
completely because the movie is so scary! This is easily a movie you can take a date or family to and not be embarrassed. I give The Gallows an enthusiastic thumbs up.
Heard about this film a couple of months back after seeing a trailer & just had to make plans to see this film. Now me not being a big fan of the 'Found Footage' genre I was kind of half & half with this one considering the fact that I've seen loads of other failure found footage films. But lately I've seen some good Found Footage Horror films, which were Grave Encounters & As Above, So Below before that last year.The film is about a group of high school friends who are doing a play called 'The Gallows' just like the title of the film. The play they are <more>
doing had a freak accident occur almost 20 years earlier in 1993 on the 29th of October when a boy, Charlie Grim was accidentally hung when the hang man prop malfunctioned. But one night when the friends break into the school & trash the place, strange things begin to happen...This film was pretty good! It was very well done! It was intense, creepy, scary & very nerve shredding!Unlike The Blair Which Project which sucked & The Bigfoot Tapes etc. This film actually had action in it! Yes, action! Which I think made this film very good as it was along with the strong tension & jump scares which came with it!The death scenes were intense & the ghost apparitions were creepy! The back story I thought was well done & had a dreary feel to it! The video evidence that filmed the tragedy & made to look realistic was well done. The acting was pretty good also. I quite liked how they suddenly knew they were being hunted down by a supernatural force & that they couldn't get out along with one of the friends discovering that his dad was meant to be the executioner on stage on the fateful evening. The film itself felt dark & eerie with weird things going on!Though the ending wasn't 100% great I still though it was good & decent enough for me to watch it again! Though I won't give away anymore as you should see it for yourself! It was overall a great film with suspense & an unnerving atmosphere. Screw what the critics say as they don't know a good horror film when they see it! It was awesome! Go watch it!9/10
I saw this movie the night it came out with my family. While on the way to the movie theaters, I went to IMDb to see what others had to say about the movie it's a little habit I have . I was shocked to see that a lot of people gave it a bad rating. So, now I had low expectations for this movie. Boy, what a mistake THAT was. The beginning of the movie had a little slow start, but I didn't mind. Just a bunch of school students being school students. But after the 30 minute mark, that's when things started to get a little spooky, just what I was waiting for. From that point forward, <more>
it was a fun roller-coaster ride from curiosity, to jump scares, to "what the f*** was that??" and lastly, to "holy f***ing sh*t!!" But, let's not forget the fact that I'm 17. But I could tell it was scary as f*** when I saw my stepfather and mother jump out their seats and cover their faces. All in all, it was a good movie that you can label "Scary and fun". Towards the end, it'll mindf*** you, TRUST me. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to have a good time with their friends or family. But do NOT go alone!
What's up with the 1 star reviews?? (by briiana_siifuentes)
I'm genuinely curious but were these people all sent here from some blog or something? This movie really surprised me with how well-done the death scenes were. I never thought a hangman would be scary but was pleasantly surprised. Yeah the story wasn't perfect, but it was a creepy movie when you got down to it. Honestly all the 1-star reviews seems like someone sent a group of users out to doxx the filmmakers. Everyone sounds strangely invested and bitter? Super weird.
Spoiler - The Gallows Not For the Faint Of Heart (by mom-29-22843)
My daughter and I went to see the movie The Gallows today. I had seen the previews and thought it looked really interesting since I have a soft spot for movies that are filmed Guerrilla Style much like the Paranormal Activity movies. The movie started with the backstory as to who and why the school was being haunted. In 1993 a boy named Charlie was tragically killed while performing the part of August in a play entitled "The Gallows." The trap door opened on the set piece and he was accidentally killed by hanging. This one event set the tone for the entire movie. Jump ahead 20 years <more>
to 2013 and another group of students is recreating the play. You meet Ryan who is a snarky jock involved in the stage crew of the new production of the Gallows. He's filming his best friend Reese who is playing August in the revival beside a girl named Pfeifer who he has a crush on. Then there's Ryan's girlfriend Cassidy who is your ultimate blonde teenage scream queen. What respectable horror movie doesn't have one of these? Throughout the movie you are taken on a roller coaster ride of twists and turns that keep you guessing right until the climactic ending which left me thinking, this is really F***ed up! It was quiet a storyline to say the least! I can't say much about the twists other than you are going to really enjoy trying to figure out who's going to die and why! They left the ending open for a 2nd part to the movie but they will have to treat it carefully to live up to the first one. This movie had gotten terrible reviews, but quite honestly I'm seriously considering adding it to my home movie collection. You should definitely go see The Gallows. While it has a no name cast, they do a great job acting and don't overplay the roles. It's definitely a must see!
