Though Blumhouse Productions has creatively branched out in recent years with Oscar nominee Whiplash and steamy thriller The Boy Next Door, the studio is still far better known for its micro-budget horror affairs, like Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister. And by the looks of it, Blumhouse has another major hit on its hands this summer, with the wide release of a tiny horror pic called The Gallows.
Lacking an established director or any palpable star power (unlike the studio’s recent disappointment The Lazarus Effect), the pic is flying way under the radar in a summer season packed with trailer-happy blockbusters. And that may be what ensures its success.
Word-of-mouth is what could really send The Gallows soaring into the stratosphere, and based on the terrifying first teaser for the high school-set horror, it’s going to build up quite a lot in the weeks leading up to its release. »

There are some things that will never get old or any less frightening. Proof is in the new teaser trailer for The Gallows (in theaters July 10) the latest horror flick from Blumhouse Productions, which previously gave us Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, The Purge, Oculus and this week's Unfriended. There's no denying the tension and terror provoked by what's simply a clip of a young woman crying and a mysterious figure barely emerging from the darkness to...

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and starring Addison Timlin, Travis Tope, Gary Cole, Joshua Leonard, Anthony Anderson, Denis O’Hare, Edward Herrmann and Veronica Cartwright, the Jason Blum-produced The Town That Dreaded Sundown is a remake of the seventies horror of the same name is inspired by the unsolved ‘Moonlight Murders’ that took place in the American border town of Texarkana in 1946.
Set in a world where the original film exists and is very much part of the public consciousness, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up 65 years later, where the quiet streets of Texarkana are once more plagued by a masked maniac who bears a striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc decades earlier. Is it a copycat crime? Has someone seen the original film too many times, or is it something even more sinister? A lonely high school (Addison Timlin), with dark secrets of her own, »

There are some things that will never get old or any less frightening. Proof is in the new teaser trailer for The Gallows, the latest horror flick from Blumhouse Productions, which previously gave us Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, The Purge, Oculus and Whiplash. There's no denying the tension and terror provoked by what's simply a clip of a young woman crying and a mysterious figure barely emerging from the darkness to ultimately drag that woman to her doom. Watch it below. The decision to go with a clip like this is rather smart, as it doesn't bother to set up a story or show any good times before the darkness falls. We're immediately scared, or we at least get to experience the tone of this movie's horrors. It also offers some mystery. You...

Unfriended is a pretty intense cyber-thriller that is sure to scare teens straight with its anti-bullying theme.
Sure, we’ve all seen the wave of found footage flicks that has come out in the past decade or so, starting with The Blair Witch Project (which, Fyi, still holds up). Since it’s release, audiences have been bombarded with the sub-genre of films… some good, some terrible, such as the never-ending supply of Paranormal Activity movies. This is where Unfriended broke the mold. The film modified the handheld cam look, and upgraded it to a laptop. Think about it. What are teens up to when they are at home on a school night? They’re talking to their friends in group chats, posting on Facebook, and texting with their smartphones. It’s never been easier for kids to have access to whatever it is that they want. Unfortunately, this is also »

New Line Cinema and Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) have finally released a teaser trailer for their high school horror pic The Gallows. The film comes from writers/directors Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff.
Starring Cassidy Gifford, Ryan Shoos, Reese Mishler and Pfeifer Brown, The Gallows takes place 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. It's been said that the pic is something in the same vein as I Know What You Did Last Summer.
The teaser doesn't offer much. All we see is a girl, crying of terror, covered in blood. The movie opens July 10. Here's the trailer:

The Gallows is another horror film from Blumhouse Productions. Steeped in mystery, a teaser trailer has been released for the film. The clip shows a hangman, a noose and a terrified young woman. The Gallows stars Cassidy Gifford, Pfeifer Brown and Ryan Shoos. The film was developed by Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing. The blood red infused trailer lies below. Only a few story details have been released. From the synopsis, a tragedy has taken place in a small town. 20 years later, that tragedy is replayed in a small production. But, something or someone is critical of this new production and out for blood. Blumhouse Productions, from Jason Blum, continues to create low budget horror. This production house has completed such hits as The Purge, Sinister and the Paranormal Activity series of films. Will The Gallows be another hit? Fans can decide for themselves on July 10th, 2015, when the film reaches theatres. »

From Blumhouse, the producer of mega-hit horror franchises Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes a new scarifying feature The Gallows. This is the first outing by directors Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff, who caught the eye of Jason Blum with their online video work.
The first trailer is more of a teaser, but it's effective, fearing quotes from early test audiences. There's obviously something paranormal going on.

In a summer movie season positive jam-packed with sequels, reboots, and spinoffs, it’s kind of refreshing to hear about a wide release that’s none of those things. Heck, The Gallows doesn’t even have a big-name director or a star-studded cast to attract attention. What it does have is Blumhouse Productions, the powerhouse behind some of […]

There's no doubt that Blumhouse Productions has become quite the producer of horror franchises since hitting it big with Paranormal Activity in 2009. Since then, they've launched franchises with Insidious, Sinister and The Purge, and this summer brings another new horror flick in the form of The Gallows. The first teaser trailer has just arrived, and while it doesn't tell us much about the story following high school kids terrorized by some kind of malicious force after resurrecting a stage production where a student died during a performance, it's a pretty haunting tease of the terror to come, especially with the red lighting. Here's the teaser trailer for Chris Lofing & Travis Cluff's The Gallows from Warner Bros. Pictures: The Gallows is written and directed by Chris Lofing & Travis Cluff. Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small »

It speaks to how successful Blumhouse Productions is that they can have a movie with no stars slotted for a major summer release date. The company behind "Insidious" and "Paranormal Activity" has proven they can make films that are very cheap, that scare the hell out of audiences, and reap big box office results. Will they have another hit this summer with "The Gallows"? Well, the first teaser trailer is certainly creepy.

Sometimes a franchise built on a gimmick can overcome the stereotypical rut its destined to crash into, elevating future installments to such heights that the original film becomes a pale shadow of the franchise's former self. Paranormal Activity is not one of those franchises, and Cinema Sins has the video to prove it, as demonstrated below. Knowing how much Jeremy at CinemaSins loathes lazy sequels, his 13 minute (or less) long take down of the franchise that took over where Saw left off is particularly laced with his special brand of venom. Judging by how the first film's single camera set up is mimicked by the prequel's multi-angle security camera, it's not hard to see that the most consistent problem with this movie is the fact that the "less is more" approach doesn't work when there's no obvious explanation as to why we can't see some of the non-existent action in »
