Found footage horror is still going strong. The Upcoming horror film the Gallows will definitely be a treat for found footage fans and slasher film fans since this film seems to be trying to combine both of those elements to create a truly chilling and terrifying experience on screen. The mythology behind this film is also very interesting since it appears to be based on a fictional urban legend that also inspired a game called charlie charlie.
here's the plot synopsis:
In 1993, a high school senior named Charlie Grimille is killed in a horrific accident during a small town high school play, The Gallows. Twenty years later, students at the school resurrect the failed show in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy - but a few of the students break in at night to stop the production and soon discover that some things are better left alone for good.
This film looks like it could provide a few scares but the trailer could have possibly given away the ending,keep in mind that's not confirmed. The film has also tried to build hype by mentioning how Jason has his machete and how Freddy has his gloves,it goes on to say that Charlie will be armed with a noose as his weapon of choice. We don't know if Charlie will become a fan-favorite slasher villain but the film could promise some laughs if you just think it looks cheesy.The box office might favor this movie if people are either in the mood for a horror movie or a laugh-fest, hopefully the film was marketed correctly.
The gallows arrives in theaters on July 10, 2015
