The Gallows is yet another found footage horror movie, but this one seems to have some studio execs rather fired up. The small indie horror film was snatched up by Warner Bros. and Blumhouse and will be released right in the middle of summer blockbuster season, rather than being dumped in mid-Septmeber.
the new full-length trailer for The Gallows shows us the story, which doesn’t excite me one way or another to be honest. But somebody out there has immense faith in the film.
Here is The full-length trailer for The Gallows:
These found footage horror films are hit or miss for me. It makes sense why they are so popular, because they are cheap and if they hit all the right notes the windfall can be spectacular (see: Paranormal Activity, which seems like a title card on all of these movies now… From the Producers of…). I always hope these movies bring the scares, so here’s hoping for The Gallows.
The Gallows stars an unknown cast of young actors, Cassidy Gifford, Ryan Shoos, Reese Mishler and Pfeifer Brown. Directed by Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing, The Gallows opens July 10.
