The Gallows (2015) – Movie Review

The Gallows (2015)

Movie Review –

Right off the bat one actor stood out very badly. The actor playing the role of Reese seemed to loose character every time the camera was in his face. Now that I mentioned that let’s start with what is with the Blair Witch cheaply making movies phase? Has it come to “this is what horror movies should be?, or is it that “anyone can make movies cheaply” phase? I’m a bit unsettled on this one, the film is fairly put together, and the story is fairly done. The acting for what it was held to be okay for what it was, I’m just very dizzy from the single camera following throughout the entire movie. Oh and of course when the group split up, instantly it was phone cam time; gotta love it. Now I’m sure they had to do somethings to make the film piece together on separation and of course this was a very low budget film. For what The Gallows brought to the table as a story makes up for a lot of things. It does have a good story-line and if I were younger I’d probably be scared.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 2.5
