20 years after a horrific accident during a small town school play, students at the school resurrect the failed show in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy - but soon discover that some things are better left alone.
After experiencing what they think are a series of "break-ins", a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.
Students from Nebraska discover some strange things that have happened to their school. Charlie Grimille, a innocent high school student that went to the same school as the victims earlier in the plot line was in a play called "Gallow." He was supposed to be standing on a thin wooden board with his neck around a loose rope. That board fell through and caused Charlie to die on the spot. Many years later, these high school students decide to reenact the play in Charlie's honor. When the lead role gets a bad case of stage fright, they decide to go to the school the night before to ruin the set so the play wouldn't happen. Little did they know what would happen after that..
The actors performed their own stunts, and no major CGI was used in the film. See more »
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 »
I'm sorry Reese can you just explain what it is about Pfeiffer? Cause I don't see it, I don't get it and I'm pretty sure you don't get it right babe

The Gallows (4/10)
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.
