This summer, stay out of school…
From New Line Cinema comes the horror film “The Gallows.” Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small town school resurrected the failed stage production in a misguided attempt to honour the anniversary of the tragedy. Unfortunately, they soon discover that some things are best left alone.
The plot is as follows:
In 1993, a freak accident involving a noose kills teenager Charlie Grimille during a high-school production of “The Gallows.” Twenty years later, on the eve of the play’s revival, students Reese, Pfeifer, Ryan and Cassidy become trapped in the auditorium, with no way of calling for help. A night of terror awaits the four friends as they face the wrath of a malevolent and vengeful spirit. It seems Charlie will have his curtain call after all.
Written, directed and produced by Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff and shot entirely outside of the Hollywood system, the horror film found its way to the big screen thanks to the filmmakers’ use of a much smaller one—the computer—and their own ingenuity.
Jason Blum (“Ouija,” the “Paranormal Activity” “Insidious” and “Sinister” franchises), Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady (TV’s “Game of Thrones,” “Steve Jobs”), Dean Schnider (upcoming “Shovel Buddies,” “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale”), and Benjamin Forkner (“The Killing Room”), and Lofing as well as Cluff served as the film’s producers while Dave Neustadter, Walter Hamada and Couper Samuelson served as executive producers.
“The Gallows” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures and is slated for a release on July 23rd in Malaysia.
