      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Narratively contrived and visually a mess, The Gallows sends viewers on a shaky tumble to the bottom of the found-footage horror barrel.

      Saul U Very good movie, the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/12/24 Full Review Stuart R Even with it only being 80 minutes -- the constant screaming and crying along with the shaky cam can be kind of overkill. But The Gallows isn't the dumbest or least effective Blumhouse film… It just isn't a standout, either. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Elvis D Recurriendo de nuevo al subgénero de metraje encontrado, The Gallows no es diferente de otras películas simples de este tipo. Su punto a favor es que, al igual que muchas de las películas de este tipo, tiene un ambiente de tensión bastante favorable. Al principio los sustos que presenta son por cosas simples, pero después todo se intensifica ofreciendo unos sustos prometedores. Su concepto basado en un teatro maldito no es algo que se haya visto antes, pero tampoco algo muy innovador. La tensión, el suspenso, la sensación de incomodidad y la intriga son lo que favorecen esta película, haciéndola una intensa experiencia que se puede experimentar solo con las luces apagadas. The Gallows es otra película más de terror psicológico sobrenatural de esas que se pusieron muy de moda en los 2010, pero es cumplidora para pasar una noche de tensión. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 8/10. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/06/23 Full Review Hailie C The only the thing scary about this movie is how terribly put together the entire film was. I have never regretted watching any movie more than I regret purchasing this dvd to watch this horrible movie. Blum house do better. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/19/22 Full Review kendra s Really enjoyed this movie! The suspense was crazy good and the plot was very intense. It puts you in the mind of The Blair Witch Project, how the filming was being filmed. I was glued to the TV and jumping in my seat. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member First of the teaser trailer is the best and creepy of all time but LMAO the audience reviews in the teaser trailer are dumb and this horror movie is really bad and no scares.

      Lenika Cruz The Atlantic The lazy way The Gallows bundles its tropes together suggests that its creators' ambitions went no higher than simply getting a horror film made. Jan 21, 2016 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times In a quick 80 minutes, we get the back story, we meet the four core characters (all of the young actors do fine work), get the wits scared out of us about a half-dozen times and wind up with a VERY creepy ending. Rated: 3/4 Aug 14, 2015 Full Review Jake Wilson Sydney Morning Herald By now these techniques are too familiar to be truly unnerving, especially as the underlying narrative logic is never explained in any persuasive way. Rated: 2/5 Jul 22, 2015 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts It was just very slow and not many scares happened. Rated: 3/10 Jun 1, 2021 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com It doesn't work. Rated: 1.5/4.0 Sep 8, 2020 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin At worst, it amplifies what detractors of the subgenre complain about: unnecessary camera shaking, jump scares and fake outs without any real fear or tension. Rated: D+ Jul 15, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
