The Gallows

The Gallows: Unlikeable

81 mins / Horror / 2015 

The whole film is pretty unlikeable, down to the characters, the story and the way it was filmed.


 (This girl's face will get on your nerves)
Characters: There isn't much to say except I could careless about any of them. The most annoying bunch of characters I've seen in a longtime. Usually you're rooting for someone, not even "Charlie" who in one of those TV spots was placed on the same shelf as Freddy, Michael and Jason.

Yeahhh about that.... not even close.

Story: What story? Kids break into a school after hours and die.


Fun Fact: The actors names are the same in the movie for their characters name. They didn't even spend the time to give their characters names, let alone any real back story or weight.

Filmed: This one character (can't remember his name nor do it care) shoots everything at school with his camera. So yeah another found footage.

Why films like this are picked up by a big studio to distribute is beyond me. So many good independent projects that never get a big break but this does. Wait why am I saying that? Of course the studios did, they're stupid.

And this is why I never go see horror films anymore.
