It’s showtime, horror fans! In the film THE GALLOWS, three teenagers, Reese, Cassidy, and Ryan, learn the importance of school spirit one night when they break into the school auditorium. Reese is the star in the school’s upcoming revival of The Gallows, a play that went horribly awry when a prop malfunction caused the death of a student named Charlie Grimille in 1993. Reese clearly demonstrates that acting is not his forte, and admits that even though he can’t act his way out of a paper bag, he took the part as the lead in a desperate attempt to impress his costar Pfeifer. Ryan, fed up with his drama class requirement, convinces Reese that he is going to fail on stage, letting down everyone whose worked to make this play a reality, and that the best solution is to wreck the stage so that Reese doesn’t have to perform, but can still be there to comfort Pfeifer in her time of need. After breaking in however, it doesn’t take them long to realize that they’re not alone in the theater, and that something lurking in the darkness hunting them. Can the kids get out before the Hangman closes the curtain on them for good?
