Watch teaser Trailer and your done with the movie
9 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

The found footage genre is really odd one.

I seen to number of them , I liked a lot of them but I hated few of them else And there are some feel are OK.

If we the gallows falls in the hated pile, when I first saw the teaser Trailer at insidious 3, I thought it looked and sound really good . But sadly that was not the case.

The doing play on stage but some goes wrong when is accidentally hung on stage.

The the movies onto modem time and people getting ready for the same play

But the football player who is really bad actor on stage (and off stage as well)

They break into school at night and trash stage, then when movie Start to up, with the door that never locks , is locked!

What this movie is missing is that that there was no atmosphere at all , I didn't find anything creepy or scary at all.

Even the jump scene didn't work and I saw them coming a mile away.

I didn't like how the movie ended , it was predicable

I going to give this 2 out of 10
