The Gallows (2015) Review:

Another found footage, another ghost movie… it is without an expectation that I started watching this one…and without being convinced that I ended it.

The movie is simple, and clearly targets a teen audience by being set in a college, and featuring only teens and their teen problems. I have no problem with this usually, but when it is an excuse for being silly, it is another story. The movie is solely based on cheap scares and does a minimal job at every other aspect such as having a gripping story or being atmospheric. A few things save the movie though. The acting is actually pretty good. The very end and its weak twist were actually all right and finished the movie on a better note than it started, something that accounts for most of the points given here.

Be careful to watch the uncensored version (81 minutes) and not the widely available censored one (77 minutes) to at least get a glimpse at a few death scenes.
