Blumhouse Productions (Insidious) are back with another ‘found footage’ horror movie.
Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer for The Gallows, a film about a group of students who, in honor of a horrific event, decide to resurrect an old stage play that had resulted in tragedy twenty years before.

The trailer is just a teaser and doesn’t really give us much in the way of the story or the characters, but appears to show a strong style which certainly draws our attention. The ‘found footage’ genre is one that very few have mastered (Paranormal Activity, V/H/S) and we’ve just seen so many attempts that have struggled to bring anything other than jump-scares to the table. For directors Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing however, this is their moment. A first feature film for the duo, The Gallows gives them the opportunity to put themselves on the map.
The Gallows is set for release in the UK on September 4th.
