The Gallows

Rated R 81 minutes 2015

The fictitious high school play The Gallows isn't very good, judging from what we see of it during the real horror movie The Gallows.

Remounting the play 20 years later is morbid at best and negligent at worst, but then again, bad decisions are the foundation upon which the horror genre was built.
