The movie starts with the recording of a high school play. There is a tragic incident which leads to the death of a student during the play and then the movie picks up several years later, at the same high school. This movie is a found footage film, which I have to say is really overdone and dull at this point. There isn't much new out there to this type of horror film.
Anyway, I am getting sidetracked. The film follows four students who are either in a redo of the play "THE GALLOWS", the same play where a student died years before. One of the students is a former football player who has given up the game to be in this play, for one reason only, because he has a crush on the main actress. His best friend constantly teases him about giving up football to be in the play, and when he realizes how terrible his friend is as an actor he comes up with a plan to destroy the set and help his friend.
The students sneak into the the school late one night to destroy the set, and realize they are not alone. Some sinister force is there with them, seeking revenge, seeking friends, they don't know what is going on, but one by one, tragic things again happen.
This movie was just not good. The scares were predictable, the actors were terrible, the plot dull, and everything was just so obvious. There was not one moment in this film where I was actually very interested in watching it. I wanted to throw things because it was just so obvious who was the killer, and why they were killing, and who was the daughter or son of the killer, and ugh. I am so tired of these boring, predictable horror films which think they are being clever by having some sort of twist at the end, but in reality the twist is so obvious that there is no twist at all.
I would like to take back the hour and twenty minutes I spent watching this movie. I don't recommend this movie to anyone. It isn't scary, it isn't fun, it isn't interesting, it's just dull.
