After watching Jurassic World yesterday afternoon, I decided to kick back and watch something darker, something that fit into the feel of Halloween. After some thought, I decided on the 2015 movie The Gallows.
Plot/ 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.
When I saw the trailer for this one, I was excited. Unfortunately, now that I have seen it, I should have known that the preview was too good to be true. Another found footage entry, this one suffers from some of the same issues that usually doom found footage horror movies, the storyline has way too many holes to make it hold up throughout. This one takes that flaw to a new level, leaving a myriad of unanswered questions. While the performances are decent, the lack of detailed storyline and overall choppy nature of the movie have nothing new, original, or entertaining. In fact, this one has no quality that will make it memorable and was not worth watching. Stay Away!
