My Thougts
The Gallows is pretty much what it says on the tin … or the trailer. A teenage horror flick and the cast are obviously doomed from the start. Now you can take what you what from that, I for one like them. I knew pretty much the amount of scare factor it would bring into my life and that’s why I went. I wanted to have a few jumps, a few shivers and a few scares but to be able to sleep sound that night too and that’s exactly what the movie provides. I would recommend for you to go see it, if you want a cheap thrill accompanied by some popcorn.
