Goofs

When the Police Officer is searching Pfeifer's house and turns sideways while going around the first corner, we can see he has no ammo magazines in the ammo pouch on his Sam Browne duty-belt. No Police Officer would ever go out on patrol or answer a call like this without extra ammo in this pouch. See more »

The Gallows (4/10)
15 December 2015 | by skybrick736See all my reviews

As one of the most marketed horror films of 2015, The Gallows was strictly made to pick up money from teen audiences. The story revolves around a drama class at high school and drama between characters. The story is set up terribly making no sense at times and the characters were unlikable and had terrible dialogue. The writing was awful from the start. Besides the found footage technique which wasn't really needed, there is an element of originality with some of the concepts so I'll give it points for that. However, the film crashed for good once the ending rolled along, it was just terrible. Skip The Gallows unless you're looking for a movie with lots of jump scares or something to laugh at with your friends at the films absurdity.
